ERIE, Pa. — Days after announcing its new president and board members, the Catholic Diocese of Erie released the names of the principals who will lead the new school system.
Four of the six schools in the newly created Catholic school system will have a new principal.
Violet Kill at St. Jude School; Lisa Norton at St. James School; Lisa Panighetti at Our Lady of Peace School; Allison Reynolds at St. George School; and Julia Strzalka at St. Luke School will assume new leadership at their respective schools for the 2017-18 school year.
Jane Wagner is in her second year as principal at Blessed Sacrament School while Lisa Norton is currently interim principal at St. James School.
“We are so pleased with this strong team,” said Jim Gallagher, superintendent of schools for the Diocese of Erie, in a news release. “Each new principal is prepared to create a school that is authentically Catholic and intellectually rigorous. Each principal also embraces our mission to form students who will help bring the presence of Jesus into the communities in which they live.”
