Library Dedication to the Loesch Family
In 2014, the Loesch Family Library was renovated and dedicated in honor of former Marian High School principal Carl Loesch and his parents Anne and Connor Loesch. Anne and Connor were tireless servants of and advocates for Catholic education in our diocese, through teaching in our schools and tenure on multiple Catholic school boards. Meanwhile, they sacrificed to give their seven children the blessing of a Catholic education. Carl served honorably as principal of Marian High School 2004 – 2014.
This dedication is in honor of the Loesch family’s contributions, wisdom, and knowledge.
