Why Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast?
Cindy has worked or been a consultant to over twenty public and non-public high schools in this area. She says she will finish her career here at “Bonner-Prendie” and is happy to do so because this high school has more “heart” than any other she’s been associated with in the five county area.
