Janet Williams, principal at Sacred Heart School in Camden was presented with the Diocese of Camden Elementary School Principal of the Year Award at a prayer service in Sacred Heart Church.

In her comments at the award ceremony, Mary Boyle, Superintendent of Schools, stated that “Janet was moved to tears when the announcement of her award was made. “That,” she said, “is because Ms. Williams is a humble servant who expects no notice for the things she does for God and his children.”

Williams has faithfully given her heart and her energies to the children at Sacred Heart since 1991, first as a teacher, and then for the last 20 years as principal, the Schools Office said in a statement.

Sister Karen Dietrich, executive director of the Catholic Partnership Schools, said, “I am always struck by her untiring faithfulness and joy. Her students bear testimony to her efforts … young men and women who find their gifts and passions who go on to high school on academically earned scholarships.”

Mary Boyle, on behalf of Bishop Dennis Sullivan, thanked Williams for the gift she has been to the life of the Church of Camden.
