Susan Selquini was previously dean of students.

St. Petersburg Catholic High has announced that its dean of students, Susan K. Seliquini, will be the school's new principal.

She will replace John McMahon, who is moving to Nebraska at the end of this school year to be closer to his aging father, the school said.

Seliquini joined the faculty in August. She has a master's degree in social studies and a degree in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale.

She has more than 24 years of experience in teaching and school administration. She also worked three years in Rome.

Seliquini is married to Col. Louis P. Seliquini, Jr., an active duty Air Force officer. They have a son and daughter attending the Florida Institute of Technology and a younger son finishing his junior year in high school.

In a letter to parents and guardians, the school said a 10-member search committee considered eight applicants and interviewed three.

The panel's recommendation was reviewed by Bishop Robert Lynch; Alberto Vazquez-Matos, superintendent of schools for the Diocese of St. Petersburg; and members of the Salesians of Don Bosco, the religious order that operates the school.
