Archives New principal, assistant principal at St. Agnes

August 30, 2023

As students, teachers, staff and administrators around the diocese and state prepare for the start of the 2023-24 school year, St. Agnes School in Lake Placid is preparing for the new year with new leadership.

After eight years in various roles at the school, Katie Turner will serve as the principal.

Turner, who earned both her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in elementary education with a focus on literacy and training as a reading specialist, has previously served as a art and science teacher, after-school and summer program director and family support coordinator at the school.

“St. Agnes has held a special place in my heart since I moved to Lake Placid, and I look forward to another amazing school year.”

Vanessa Pillen will serve as St. Agnes School’s new assistant principal.

Before earning a master’s degree in educational administration and teaching certificate, Pillen attended Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, where she majored in biblical and theological studies.

Pillen has experience in a variety of roles in both public and private schools, including time as a director of special education and, most recently, a third-grade teacher.
