On February 1, 2012, the mayor of Leesburg, Sanna Henderson, visited St. Paul’s in celebration of Catholic Schools Week and the school’s 50th year. She also proclaimed February 1 as St. Paul’s Catholic School Day. She told the students that she was there when the school was built, and how great it is to see it continue to grow. “It’s a great little school,” Mayor Henderson said.
The mayor’s proclamation also has special meaning for local area Catholics, because as one parishioner reminisced, “At one time, a Catholic church wasn’t allowed in the city of Leesburg.”
