Orange Beach Elementary welcomes new principal


Orange Beach Elementary students will have a new principal greeting them upon their return from summer break.

Mary Catherine Law comes to Orange Beach Elementary from Robertsdale Elementary where she served as assistant principal for three years. Law received her undergraduate degree from Auburn University in communications and a master’s in elementary education with a leadership certificate from the University of South Alabama. She graduates in August with an education specialist degree from Auburn University and is currently enrolled in their doctoral program in education leadership.

Law and her husband Joseph have three daughters, Lillie, Kakki and Virginia. The Law family are residents of Orange Beach and members of Orange Beach Methodist Church.

“All three of our daughters attended Orange Beach Elementary and had a positive experience. We chose to move to Orange Beach because of the educational program, values and community. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of the Orange Beach Elementary School community, now in a different role,” Law said in an open letter on the Orange Beach Elementary School Facebook page.
