Sparkle Worley has been named director of development at DePaul Cristo Rey High School, Greater Cincinnati’s newest Catholic high school. Worley joins the DPCR staff after serving more than 20 years at Cincinnati’s Mount Notre Dame High School, most recently as the executive director.
DePaul Cristo Rey is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati and offers underserved students in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky the
opportunity for a strong college preparatory education in a Catholic setting. DePaul Cristo Rey is the 24th school in the nationwide Cristo Rey Network which serves 6,900 urban young people who live in communities with limited education options. Most of the students qualify for the Federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program.
Worley, a resident of West Chester, is a graduate of Michigan Technological University. Prior to her work at Mount Notre Dame, she served as executive director of Big Brothers/Big Sisters in Howell, Mich. She is a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Greater Cincinnati Planned Giving Council and the Crable Foundation of Cincinnati.
At DePaul Cristo Rey, Worley is responsible for developing and executing all facets of the fundraising program to support DPCR academics, technology, facilities, student programs and scholarships. “I feel so privileged to be a part of the DePaul Cristo Rey community and this unique educational opportunity for the young people in the Cincinnati area,” says Worley.
