THE ARCHDIOCESE of Philadelphia's Office of Catholic Education on Thursday named two Catholic educators as the new superintendents of schools, effective immediately.

Carol A. Cary, 57, will be the superintendent in charge of parochial high schools. Jacqueline P. Coccia, 47, will oversee the Archdiocese's elementary schools.

Cary has a bachelor's degree from West Chester University and a teaching certificate from Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C. The Exton resident has a master's degree in educational administration from North Carolina State and a doctorate from Immaculata University.

Coccia, of Paoli, has a bachelor's degree in education from Cabrini College and a master's degree from Immaculata.

The two take over from former superindentent Mary E. Rochford, who was named to the position in 2008 and had worked in the Office of Education since 1999. Rochford said she left to care for ailing relatives. n
