Midday Sunday With Tony Valdez

Anointed Moments

Posted: Updated:

Sunday's guest is Dan Horn, the President-Principal of St. Genevieve's Parish Schools in Panorama City. Mr. Horn has turned around two failing southern California schools and made them award-winning institutions.

His career began in the 1990s when he became the principal of St. Thomas the Apostle on Pico Boulevard in the Byzantine-Latino District of Los Angeles. Under his leadership, the school was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.

From there, Mr. Horn joined the St. Genevieve Parish's elementary and high schools which have been designated as National Schools of Character.

He has written about his experiences transforming these two schools in a new book, Anointed Moments: Everyday Miracles Transforming Two Schools, Thousands of People and a Dog Named Blue.

For information about the St. Genevieve Paris Schools, go to www.sgps.org.
