Former PMHS assistant principal named as interim; search continues for permanent replacement

Richard Leprine was appointed as the interim assistant principal of Pelham Memorial High School, following the resignation of Bethany Antonelli in July.

Leprine previously served as assistant principal of PMHS before being named principal of John Jay High School and John Jay Middle School in Cross River, a post he held until retiring in 2018.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Mr. Leprine, who brings a wealth of experience and familiarity with Pelham to his work alongside Principal (Mark) Berkowitz, while we continue our search for the next assistant principal for PMHS,” said Superintendent Dr. Cheryl Champ in an email on Monday.
