Guadalupe Regional Middle School Names Ms. Jennifer Rose School President
The Board of Trustees, along with Mr. Raul Villanueva (Board Chair), and the Guadalupe Regional Middle School (GMRS) Board of Directors announce the appointment of Ms. Jennifer Rose as the new school President.
She will succeed Dr. Virginia Miller, Interim President and Principal. The appointment will be for the 2023-2024 academic year and Dr. Miller will be continuing her duties as school Principal.
A native of Brownsville, Texas, Ms. Jennifer Rose began her career in education 14 years ago at Guadalupe Regional Middle School. She began as an art teacher before adding technology and student activities to her list of responsibilities.
For the past nine years, Ms. Rose worked at ICA Cristo Rey High School, an all-girls high school in San Francisco, California. She was hired there as the Art Department Chair and Educational Technology Director. For the last five years, she has served as the sole Assistant Principal of the school overseeing all aspects of the academic and co-curricular programs.
She has Master's degrees in both Art Education and School Leadership, the latter to be received this summer from the prestigious Remick Leadership Program at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. She is excited to be returning "home" - both personally and professionally - with her husband and son.
“Guadalupe is where I fell in love with Catholic education. It’s where my career in education began, and my entire career, thus far, has been focused on opening doors for students and creating opportunities for them they might not otherwise have. GRMS makes Catholic education accessible to students who are craving opportunities to learn and grow and prepare themselves for what’s next. My predecessors achieved great things here - building the school, growing the school. I am blessed to be able to stand on their shoulders and continue the work they began.”
Mr. Raul Villanueva expressed the sentiments of the Board of Directors:
“We are so excited and blessed to have been able to bring Mrs. Rose on board as the new GRMS School President. We believe that as a local, Brownsville native who exemplifies our core mission, she will be instrumental in the continued success of our school. She is motivated, familiar with the unique model of the school and schools like it, and is a wonderful example of a new generation of Catholic School leaders.”
