TIME: 4:00pm
DATE: 1/27/20

We are honored to announce the 2020 St. Philomena School Distinguished Graduate is Lisa Weber Korth. Lisa graduated from St. Philomena School in 1990 and then went on to Kennedy Catholic High School, Seattle University and the Art Institute. Lisa turned both her love of working with children and working in production into a career. She has worked at different preschools and television stations. Currently she is the director of the All Saints School Early Learning Center in Puyallup and she also does freelance work for the Seattle Mariners. She gets to put up information on the big screen including the boat races!! When asked who her favorite teacher was at St. Phil’s, Lisa stated, “So many to choose from....Mr. Beasley, Mrs. Bauer… but I would say Mrs. Barton Smith. I had her in second grade, got to go to her wedding, and then had her in 4th grade.” Lisa said Catholic education is important to her because she came from a Catholic family, it was important for her mom to send her to Catholic schools. She has been blessed with the ability to not only go to a Catholic grade school, but a Catholic high school and Jesuit college as well. A Catholic education not only helped her thrive academically, but it continued to instill a sense of belonging and a need to help others. Lisa has been married to her husband, Bob for 20 years. They have 2 sons, 16-year-old Matthew who graduated from All Saints and 13-year-old Nathan who is an 8th grader at All Saints. Lisa stated that “My husband and I were fortunate to be able to send our two sons to Catholic grade school and now our oldest is looking to go to Seattle University”. Finally Lisa said, “ I have the best of both worlds in my jobs. I love being able to share the Catholic faith with our little ones at All Saints, helping set them up for success in school and life, and I also get to work for my favorite baseball team, cheering them on at every home game!” Congratulations Lisa, we are so proud to recognize you for all that you have accomplished and for continuing on the legacy of Catholic education!! Lisa will be recognized at Mass on Fri., Jan. 31st at 8:45 AM!
