All Saints principal headed to Noblesville

McNeany to lead Catholic high school.

LOGANSPORT — Logansport’s Catholic elementary school is losing its principal this summer.

James McNeany, principal of All Saints Catholic School since January of 2008, was recently hired by St. Theodore Guerin High School to be principal there.

The 725-student Catholic college preparatory school was founded in 2004 and is located in Noblesville.

McNeany’s contract with All Saints ends in mid-June and he’ll start as principal at Guerin on July 1.

“I’m just very humbled to be chosen as principal of such a fine Catholic-centered high school,” McNeany said. “I look forward to getting to know the students, staff and parents and working with them to sustain and build on the success they’ve had.”

Although McNeany called Guerin one of the top Catholic high schools in the U.S., he said in a letter to parents that deciding to move from All Saints  was difficult.

“The decision to accept the position was a very prayerful process made difficult by my love for our community, our parish and our school,” McNeany wrote. “In the end, what led me to Guerin is the same thing that led me to All Saints over five years ago; I felt called by God.”

The former Columbia Middle School assistant principal originally studied secondary math education in college and has taught at elementary and secondary levels. He was also an adjunct mathematics instructor at Ivy Tech Community College.

The Rev. Michael McKinney of All Saints parish is creating a search committee to hire someone to replace McNeany.

St. Theodore Guerin High School, like All Saints, is part of the Lafayette diocese. It’s named for St. Theodore (Anne-Therese) Guerin, a French nun who established Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in 1841 and was the first Hoosier to be canonized into sainthood.
