Guerin names new principal



After an extensive search and interview process, James McNeany has been named the next principal for Guerin Catholic High School.

McNeany was the unanimous choice of the selection committee because of his passion for Catholic education and Christian faith. He comes from Logansport where he has served as principal of All Saints Catholic School since 2007. McNeany also has extensive experience in the classroom, as a coach and most recently served as an adjunct faculty member at Ivy Tech Community College.

“It was the energy and passion that James displayed to our committee for what Catholic education can be that led us to choose him to be the third principal of Guerin Catholic,” Guerin President Paul S. Lunsford and Search Committee Chairman Joseph P. Santucci, Jr. wrote in a statement. “The future requires us to find a principal that can take us to the next level and bring us to our ultimate goal of 800 souls growing in their God-given talents. We have every confidence that with all of our encouragement and prayers James will be that leader.”

McNeany received his undergraduate degree at Purdue University and his master’s and principal’s license from Indiana Wesleyan University. He and his wife, Jennifer, have four children and are looking forward to joining a parish in the Carmel Deanery. McNeany will begin his new position in July.
