AURORA — A member of Rosary High School’s inaugural class has been named the new principal for the Aurora Catholic all-girls school.
The Rosary High School Board and the Dominican Sisters of Springfield announced Sister Ann Brummel will take over as principal at Rosary beginning July 1.
Brummel has served as principal of St. Peter Catholic School in Aurora since 2002 and has been an administrator and teacher at other schools in Illinois.
A member of Rosary’s first graduating class in 1966, Brummel has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from St. Ambrose College in Davenport, Iowa, and a master’s in administration and supervision from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Brummel becomes the eighth Springfield Dominican sister to lead Rosary High School. She will succeed Sister Patricia Burke, who has been Rosary’s principal since 2004.
“As a Rosary graduate, Sister Ann understands the importance of developing Christian leaders in the Dominican tradition,” said Michael Roche, chairman of the Rosary Board of Directors.
