A member of Rosary High School's first graduating class has been named the school's eighth principal.
The school's Board of Directors and the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois, announced the selection of Sister Ann Brummel, O.P., as the new principal of Rosary High School beginning July 1, 2013.
Selected from a field of 20 applicants, she will succeed Sister Patricia Burke, O.P., who has been Rosary’s principal since 2004.
Sister Ann has served as principal of St. Peter Catholic School in Aurora since 2002, and previously was an administrator at St. Mary School in Mt. Sterling, Illinois, and St. Bernadette School in Evergreen Park. She also taught at schools in the Springfield and Peoria dioceses and was honored with the National Distinguished Principal Award from the National Catholic Education Association in Washington, D.C. in 1992.
A member of Rosary’s first graduating class in 1966, Sister Ann earned her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa, and her Master’s in Administration and Supervision from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.
“After an extensive search and evaluation process, we are extremely pleased to be able to hire someone of Sister Ann’s caliber,” said John Reale, chairman of the search committee. “She brings a great deal of experience in Catholic education, and is a visionary who will bring Rosary High School to new heights."
