New Superintendent of Schools (West Area)

Dear South East Cornerstone Public School Division Staff and Community,

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Devon Dempsey as the new Superintendent of Schools for the west area of South East Cornerstone Public School Division effective August 1, 2024. Devon brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this role, having served as a School Principal at St. Francis Junior High School, an Associate Principal for Catholic Central High School, and Off-Campus Education Coordinator all during her time in Lethbridge, Alberta.  Prior to that she held roles as a Vice Principal at a Canadian International School and a Learning Leader and Vice Principal for the Calgary Board of Education.

In addition to her professional experience, Devon holds a Master of Business Administration with a focus on Human Resources Management and Services from the University of Liverpool, a Master of Education from Gonzaga University, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Lethbridge, and a Bachelor of Arts also from the University of Lethbridge.

Devon is committed to ensuring that every student in our school division receives a high-quality education and has the opportunity to succeed. She has a strong track record of educational leadership and is dedicated to working collaboratively with staff, parents, and community to continue to improve our schools.

A huge thankyou to Jeff St. Onge, current Superintendent of the east area, for his 35 years of service to schools and the system and congratulations on a well-deserved retirement at the end of this school year.

Kevin Hengen, current Superintendent of the west area, will be moving back to the east area starting in the 2024/2025 school year.

Please join me in welcoming Devon to South East Cornerstone Public School Division! 

Regards,

Keith Keating
