Principal: Shawna Collins

Shawna is a native of Columbus, is proud to be serving St. Anthony Catholic School as principal July 1, 2022. She is married to Paul Collins, and she is the mother of her two greatest accomplishments - Caitlyn and Calli. Mrs. Collins and her husband are members of St. Roch Catholic Church in Mentz, where they were married and raised their girls in the faith.


After their daughters graduated from St. Anthony Catholic School (class of 2012 and 2016), they continued their Catholic education by attending high school at St. John XXIII College Preparatory in Katy, Texas. As part of her 24 years experience in education, Mrs. Collins has taught all subjects and grade levels ranging from first through eighth grades. She is an advocate of Catholic education and has a passion for teaching students in a Christian environment. This is why she has spent the last nine years of her career at St. Anthony Catholic School, shaping our children into critical thinkers, academic achievers and young 'disciples of Christ'


Assistant Principal: Danette Cantu

Danette (SAS Class of ‘84) and her husband Ray have four children, all graduates of St. Anthony School.  When Danette and Ray moved back to the Columbus area in 2000, she was grateful to bring her family back to the St. Anthony School community and to build their children’s education around their Catholic faith. Danette began volunteering as a parent and eventually signed on to teach at St. Anthony School in junior high ten years ago.  She feels grateful and blessed to be a part of the staff that includes her third grade teacher from “a few years back”, just one testament to the positive impacts left by St. Anthony Catholic School!
