Vincentian Academy today announced the naming of a new principal, Ed Bernot, who has worked at Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School since 1999.
Mr. Bernot follows principal Kelly Lazzara, who became principal last year and is moving to Virginia with her family. He will begin his new job at Vincentian, a Catholic high school in McCandless, on June 23.
In a news release, John Fedko, president of Vincentian Academy, said, “We are thrilled to have Mr. Bernot as part of the Vincentian Academy family. His strong faith, leadership skills and dedication to academic excellence in a Catholic high school environment will undoubtedly uphold Vincentian Academy's strong academic reputation and help catapult us to even greater heights. Mr. Bernot's life-long commitment to Catholic education, and his history of service in the Catholic faith, makes him a perfect fit at Vincentian Academy."
Mr. Bernot, a former English teacher, has been assistant principal for student affairs at Pittsburgh Central Catholic since 2008. He holds a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Dayton and a master's in educational administration from California University of Pennsylvania. He has done additional graduate studies at Duquesne University. He is active in the St. Bonaventure parish.
In the news release, Mr. Bernot said, "I look forward to working closely with students, faculty, and parents as we continue to provide an outstanding educational experience for students of our region," stated Mr. Bernot. "This is an exciting time in the history of the school, and I feel blessed to have an opportunity to be a part of such a strong and faith-filled community."
