Elizabeth McMahon, principal of the Mars Area Primary Center, has been appointed assistant superintendent of elementary education in the district, effective July 1.
It is a new position. Matt Friedman, currently the assistant superintendent, will become the assistant superintendent for secondary education.
Ms. McMahon was appointed to the position Tuesday by the Mars Area School Board. She has been principal of the primary center, which has children in kindergarten and first grade, for nine years.
“I love my job at the primary center. I never saw this coming,” she said. “I’m honored.”
