Ms. Cynthia Collins

It is such an honor to have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Trustees at Our Lady of Providence High School. As a product of twelve years of Catholic education, over thirty-five years working in public education, and a parent of a Providence graduate I am quite cognizant of the outstanding educational and spiritual foundation supported by the faculty and staff. Providence provides extraordinary opportunities for growth academically, physically and socially to prepare students to become responsible, functional, and ethical members of society.

Providence is a special place that has the future of our community’s spiritual and educational development at the forefront of its focus. I’m thankful for my time at the school and will do what I can to help it thrive for current and future Pioneers.

In the early years of Providence High School my siblings and I had the great blessing of attending this wonderful place of learning. The lessons and values that we learned as well as the friendships we formed, continue with us. Our parents, like many today, made the necessary sacrifices to give us this gift. It is in gratitude for this that I feel privileged to serve on the Board.
