The Lockport Township High School District 205 Board of Education announced Tuesday that it selected a new principal for its east campus. John Greenan will take Principal Dennis Hicks’ place, according to a news release from the district. Hicks is retiring at the end of this school year.
Greenan has served District 205 for the past 17 years in a number of roles, including as teacher, coach, dean and most recently assistant principal at East Campus.
Greenan’s leadership skills and personal qualities distinguished him among the 40 applicants, the release said.
“Dr. Greenan has the presence, integrity, demeanor and vision to carry on the strong leadership already present at the East Campus under the leadership of Dennis Hicks,” said Robert McBride, who is replacing retiring Superintendent Todd Wernet.
On March 18, the board approved Lorie Cristofaro as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Cristofaro has 25 years of experience in public schools, the release said.
She was appointed as the social studies department chairman at Waubonsie Valley High School in 2009, and then landed her current role as assistant principal for instruction at Glenbard South High School, where she has worked since 2013.
