Josh Bower Appointed CEC Principal

Dear Members of the Conwell-Egan Catholic High School Community,

I hope you and your families are enjoying a happy and blessed summer!

In June, I shared the appointment of Mr. Matthew Fischer (Class of 2004) as President of Conwell-Egan Catholic High School (CEC). Since that time, the Office of Catholic Education (OCE), in conjunction with CEC’s Board of Trustees, has been engaged in an extensive search process to identify your next Principal.

Today, I am excited to announce that Mr. Joshua K. Bower has been appointed Principal of CEC effective August 7, 2023. Since 2018, Mr. Bower has been an integral part of your school administration and most recently served as Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs where he has been instrumental in CEC’s academic growth.

Mr. Bower started his career in education with the School District of Philadelphia as the Health and Physical Education Teacher at Andrew Hamilton Elementary School. Following that, Mr. Bower served in a variety of roles at Thomas A. Edison High School including Health and Physical Education Teacher, Dean of Students, Athletic Director, Roster Chairperson, and coach for several athletic teams. Mr. Bower holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology from Temple University and a Master of Arts Degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University Irvine. In addition, he attended the University of California San Diego’s Extension and Professional Development Institute where he received Continuing Education Credits.

Please join me in extending prayerful congratulations and best wishes to Mr. Bower as he prepares to assume his new role in service to the CEC community. Please know of our continued gratitude for the sacrifices you make to provide the gift of a Catholic education to your sons and daughters and for your ongoing support of CEC. Be assured of my prayers for you and your families during these remaining weeks of summer.
