Kathleen Fisher Appointed President of the School Advisory Council at St. Therese

Graves Garrett is pleased to congratulate Partner Kathleen Fisher on being appointed President of St. Therese School’s Advisory Council. Fisher has previously served as a member of the council for the Northland Kansas City school and largest Catholic elementary school in the Diocese.

The School Advisory Council represents the community and works closely with the principal and the pastor with the purpose of supporting Catholic education. Fisher will oversee the 12-person committee, which includes members from the community, the pastor, the principal and assistant principal. The council works closely with the parish finance committee and other parish groups to promote the school, support teachers and advise the principal.  The Council is working to implement its strategic plan, which focuses on seven areas, for the school.  The Advisory Council, which meets monthly to discuss the goals, has also worked with the school to track key performance indicators in many areas including class enrollment and test scores to help us evaluate the school’s strengths from year to year.

Fisher is a Partner at Graves Garrett, focusing on civil, criminal and regulatory investigations, as well as qui tam claims and False Claims Act/Health care cases. Most recently, Fisher settled a $10 million health care whistleblower case in the Middle District of Tennessee. She has also recently represented many noteworthy companies throughout Kansas City, including Black & Veatch, Kansas City Terminal Railway, Dairy Farmers of America, and Burns & McDonnell. Her practice extends from white collar criminal defense litigation and internal investigations to business disputes, whistleblower cases, and commercial litigation.

Outside of her law practice, Fisher is a dedicated member of the community. In addition to serving as the School Advisory Council President at St. Therese, she donates her time to a number of other organizations and has led the firm’s annual holiday fundraiser for Adopt-A-Family for several years.
