Carmen Farina ‘61 Schools Chancellor
Saint Michael Academy Alunae Carmen Farina, Class of 1961 has been named New York City School Chancellor by Mayor Bill DiBlasio.
Incoming Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña is an old-school New Yorker, a born educator who grew up in Brooklyn before it was trendy and never left the neighborhood.
