When young women enter Holy Cross High School this September as the Catholic school’s first-ever female students, they’ll have some extra guidance from the Flushing institution’s first “Dean of Women.”

Keri-Ann Wade-Donohue joins Holy Cross High School under the title of “Assistant Principal, Dean of Women,” Holy Cross announced on Feb. 9. She spent the last 16 years in teaching and administrative roles at nearby St. Agnes Academic High School in College Point.

Wade-Donohue will help transition Holy Cross from the end of one era to the start of another. The high school had been exclusively for young men since its inception in 1955; last May, Holy Cross administrators announced that it would make the high school co-ed beginning in September 2018.

Despite being a first-time member of the administration, Holy Cross Principal Edward Burns said, Wade-Donohue is quite familiar with the Holy Cross community, as her husband, Michael, chairs its English department.

“We are delighted to welcome Keri-Ann to this new leadership position. She brings with her significant experience in helping to guide young women to great success,” Burns said.

Wade-Donohue holds a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Queens College and a master’s degree in secondary education from Molloy College.

Holy Cross High School, located at 26-20 Francis Lewis Blvd., was founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross. They offer a variety of academic, athletic, spiritual and other social programs dedicated toward preparing young minds for college and beyond.
