New Marengo High School principal takes over

MARENGO – Angela Fink took the helm this week as Marengo High School's new principal, after making the switch from a top administrator role in Waukegan.

Fink arrived at the school July 1 for her first official day, after the Marengo District 154 board selected her to replace former Principal Scott Shepard, who left the school after five years to become the principal at Crystal Lake South High School in District 155, according to a District 154 news release.

Fink served as the principal for Waukegan High School's Brookside campus beginning in 2011, after working as the school's associate principal. The high school serves about 4,300 students between two campuses in the northeast suburb.

Fink now will oversee about 820 students in Marengo's single high school district. The district board appointed Fink in June out of a pool of 90 applicants for her strong educational leadership, the news release states.

Shepard had served as the high school's principal since 2008, overseeing numerous improvements to the school's curriculum, including the digital one-to-one learning initiative.

Finke has master's degrees from Saint Xavier University and Aurora University. She is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership at Concordia University.

She was unavailable for comment Friday.
