Hello St. Mary’s! My name is Carol Payne and I'm excited to be your new School Secretary.
My husband Martin and I are both native to Michigan. We met in college, married and moved south for 12 years. I worked in the advertising industry utilizing my bachelor’s degree in Marketing/Visual Communications before returning back to our home state to start our family.
For the past 17 years I have been a fulltime mom, wife and committed St. Mary’s school volunteer. I started out as a kindergarten room parent, playground/lunchroom aide then leadership roles with the PTO, Unity Auction, and most recently served as Marketing Committee member for the School Board.
I'm grateful for the faith-filled environment and outstanding academics St. Mary's provided both of my boys. As one son is about to enter high school, the other college, it’s been a natural fit for me coming back to St. Mary’s. St. Mary's is truly a wonderful family to be part of.
