Rosary Academy in Fullerton recently announced the appointment of Shawna Pautsch as their new head of the school. Following an extensive search, the selection committee agreed that Pautsch, a previous faculty member at the school, was the most uniquely qualified.

Pautsch has served as a social studies teacher, activities director and assistant principal at the school from 1991 to 2014, before taking on the role of assistant principal at Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Orange County.

Pautsch, who began her new role July 5, hopes to foster the spirit and culture of the school, focus on instructional development and expand program offerings.
