“Nancy brings an attitude, creativity and enthusiasm that is welcome to the Rome Catholic community. She has been working as the interim principal during the summer and we are pleased to introduce her as the Catholic educational leader in Rome,” said William Crist, superintendent of Syracuse Catholic schools.
