The Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) announced the appointment of Jennifer Mallett as a commissioner.
Mallett serves as Head of School for Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy in Boalsburg, Pa. She is one of 11 new commissioners.
“Middle States commissioners serve an important role in helping to improve the quality of education in the United States and around the world,” said MSA-CESS Interim President Henry Cram, Ed.D. “We are grateful to Jennifer for her commitment to Middle States and for volunteering her expertise to help schools grow and improve through accreditation.”
Mallett holds an undergraduate degree in education from Ashland University in Ohio and a Master of Science in education and allied professions from the University of Dayton. Prior to joining Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy, Mallett served as Principal of Bishop Rosecrans High School in Zanesville, Ohio. She has also volunteered on several accreditation teams.
“I am honored to join Middle States as a commissioner,” said Mallett, who lives in Boalsburg, Pa. “Middle States accreditation serves as independent validation of the good work schools are doing and ensures their mission, goals, performance and resources are aligned so they can continue to meet and exceed the highest standards.”
