Bishop Watterson High School, the first coeducational diocesan high school in Franklin County, opened its doors in the fall of 1954. Bishop Michael Joseph Ready not only mandated that the school be established, but also directed that it be named in honor of Bishop John Ambrose Watterson, who served as the second Bishop of Columbus from August 8, 1880, until his death, on April 17, 1899. Now the principal is Mrs Marian Hutson.
