WHITE PLAINS – Paul W. Carty, Stepinac High School Principal, has been selected for inclusion in the forthcoming Trademark Business Leaders of America 2018 Honors Edition.
Carty, of Bronx, NY, was cited by the prestigious national membership organization that facilitates the creation of new business relationships in all business sectors for “demonstrating dedication, leadership and professional excellence.”
The annual historic registry is in keeping with the Trademark Business Leaders of America’s more than 100-year tradition of honoring “the talent and success of each member as well as serve as a tribute to the historic legacy of each career by preserving and documenting each story as a significant part of history.”
A press release announcing Carty’s selection noted: “Each of these extraordinary people documented in this book offer tangible evidence of the value of hard work, goal setting and passion,” adding: “He has made his mark on his profession as an expert and will become part of history as one of the top professionals in his field.”
Carty joined the Stepinac faculty in 1994 as a religion teacher and campus minister, responsibilities he has continued since assuming the position of principal in 2001.
During his tenure, Stepinac earned the reputation as the standard bearer of curriculum innovation, starting with the launch of the first-of-its-kind all-digital textbook library and personalized blended learning platform that have been instrumental in preparing students to become globally competitive at college and beyond.
Most recently, Stepinac initiated the Honors Academy, a unique-in-the-region, three-year small personalized learning program designed to expose high-achieving students with advanced studies in academic disciplines—engineering, financial services, health sciences and law—leading to potential careers.
Born and raised in the Bronx, Carty obtained a B.A. Degree in Psychology from the College of New Rochelle, M.A. Degree in Religious Education and M.S. Degree in School Administration from Fordham University. In 2010, he was the first high school principal to receive the prestigious Sapienta et Doctrina Award from Fordham University. The award honors individuals for their work in religious education, pastoral counseling, youth ministry, social justice, young adult ministry, parish ministry and spiritual direction.
The Stepinac Board of Trustees also recognized Carty for shaping future leaders by honoring him with its Student Enrichment Award.
