The Diocese of Baton Rouge announced March 28 that Dr. Pattie Davis, president and CEO of Mount St. Mary Academy in Little Rock, will be its new superintendent of Catholic schools, starting June 1. 

Bishop Michael Duca said, “Dr. Davis brings with her a considerable wealth of experience from which our schools in the Diocese of Baton Rouge will benefit. Her leadership will help us create a new era of Catholic education in southeastern Louisiana.”

Vicar General Father Jamin David noted Davis has a passion for Catholic education, especially for students with disabilities. 

Davis was the associate superintendent for the Diocese of Little Rock for three years until 2009 when she was hired to be the superintendent in the Archdiocese of San Antonio and then Diocese of Las Cruces, N.M. She returned to Little Rock in 2019 to lead the all-girls high school operated by the Sisters of Mercy. 

The Diocese of Baton Rouge has 30 Catholic schools with an enrollment of 14,000 students.
