St. Joan Antida (SJA) High School, Milwaukee's only all-girl International Baccalaureate World School (IB), has named Marikris Coryell as President. Coryell was selected by the school's Presidential Search Committee, and approved by the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida. Coryell was chosen from a pool of five finalists resulting from a three-month search process following Paul Gessner's departure as Head of School for a position out of state.
