DEVON – When Devon Preparatory School students arrived on campus for the first day of school on Sept. 1, they were greeted by new faculty members and saw campus construction.
Father James J. Shea, Sch.P., headmaster, served as the principal celebrant for opening day Mass and welcomed new faculty including: class of 1994 alumnus Mark A. Aquilante of Norristown, the new athletic director; Lawrence G. Theuer of Malvern, middle school English, upper school English and AP English; Melanie R. Picard of Wayne, seventh grade science, eighth grade science and 10th grade anatomy and physiology; Jeffrey S. Jewitt of Wayne, physical education and health and new varsity soccer coach; and Father Nelson Henao, Sch. P., chaplain and director of campus ministry and religion teacher.
Devon Prep’s campus also underwent some changes this summer with the continuation of the upper school façade renovation project and the creation of a new driveway entrance to the campus from Valley Forge Road.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
