New principal for Cardinal Newman

COLUMBIA — Bishop Robert J. Baker has appointed Jacqualine Kasprowski as the new principal of Cardinal Newman School.

Kasprowski will begin July 1 after she completes the school year in her current position. She is president and principal of Saint Joseph Academy, a Catholic high school for young women in Cleveland, Ohio.

Kasprowski has a master of arts degree in educational administration, a master of education in curriculum, and a bachelor of arts in English and mathematics. She also has certification in educational administration, English, mathematics and computer science. She has worked in secondary education for 27 years.

After the departure of Jim McIntyre last June, Rose Tindall and Danny Dorsel acted as interim co-principals at Cardinal Newman. The diocese employed Shea Consulting to perform a national search for the new administrator.

The interview process was intensive, according to Dorsel. The candidates had to meet with seven subcommittees that included faculty, staff, and a student panel, he said. The final selection was made by Bishop Baker and his committee, which included Msgr. Joseph Roth, director of the Office of Christian Formation for the diocese, and Sister Julia Hutchison, superintendent of Catholic schools.

The school will bid farewell to Dorsel, who has accepted a position as principal of Our Lady of Mercy School in Atlanta. Tindall will remain as assistant principal.
