Founders Day 2017

Cotter Schools celebrated it's 4th Annual Founders Day on Thursday, November 9.  Cotter Schools was founded in 1911 by Bishop Patrick Heffron and named in honor of Bishop Joseph Cotter (1844-1909), the first bishop of the Diocese of Winona.   This year’s celebration included an all-school convocation in the newly renovated St. Cecilia Theatre. The school remembered and celebrated the dedication and vision of the Sisters of Saint Francis from Rochester, MN, the founders of the College of Saint Teresa and first caretakers of this campus on which Cotter Schools stands today.
