St. Vincent-St. Mary High School has a new principal.

School President Thomas M. Carone on Monday announced the hiring of Kimberlee Gorr, effective July 1. She has served as dean of curriculum for two years at the Catholic school in Akron. She replaces Robert Brownfield.

"We are confident and very excited she will build upon the strengths of our school," Carone said in an email to the St. Vincent-St. Mary community. "In the past two years, Mrs. Gorr has demonstrated her commitment to Catholic education and the Marianist charisms that make St. Vincent-St. Mary unique."

Before joining the school, she was an administrator at Greensburg Central Catholic Jr.-Sr. High School in Pennsylvania for eight years. Prior to that, she was a math teacher for the Mt. Lebanon School District in Pittsburgh.

Gorr earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a master's in curriculum & instruction and administrative certification from St. Vincent College.
