Spotlight on Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni or Programs!
We are excited and honored to announce that our Principal, Dr. Nigel Traylor, has been selected as one of the top 40 under 40 leaders in Prince George's County!
Eight years ago, the Prince George's County Social Innovation Fund (PGCSIF) launched 40 UNDER 40 Prince George's as a pilot effort to identify the best and brightest in Prince George's County across a range of fields including medicine, law, engineering, business, the arts, and education. This program is sponsored by the Greater Washington Community Foundation, which has also supported several initiatives here at Bishop McNamara. Recent recipients to be named to the Prince George's County 40 Under 40 List from Bishop McNamara High School include Ryan Middleton '06, who was named to the 2017 list.
Confident that the county is ripe with exceptional talent, PGCSIF wanted to offer a hometown recognition of excellence, youth and leadership. Every year since its inception, the numbers of nominations have increased and the competition has become even more intense. Indeed, Dr. Traylor's selection to be named as part of this group is all the more impressive given these developments within Prince George's County.
Dr. Traylor is an innovative educator who personally witnesses to Bishop McNamara's vision to form empowered leaders, inspired by the Gospel, who transform the world. He is dedicated to the continued academic success of every student and to the mission of Bishop McNamara High School as a Catholic and Holy Cross school. His positive attitude balanced with his humility are marks of his excellence as an educator and it is these qualities that inspire colleagues and students alike.
Dr. Traylor is also an extraordinary role model for our community. He holds several advanced degrees, including a Doctorate of Education with a specialization in educational and organizational leadership from Nova Southeastern University, a Master of School Leadership degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Certificate in Advanced Education Leadership from Harvard University.
Dr. Traylor is truly a blessing to this community as well as to Prince George's County and we wish you continued success advancing our mission to educate hearts and minds. As Fr. Moreau, our Founder, has described of educators such as Dr. Traylor, "You are for Holy Cross!"
Congratulations, Dr. Traylor!
