Ms. Lyons, 55, will succeed Sister Carol Anne Smith, who has been serving as the 66,000-student district’s superintendent and secretary of education for 11 years. Sister Smith will remain as secretary of education in the diocese, which serves an eight-county area that includes Cleveland and Akron.

Currently serving as the associate superintendent of secondary education for the diocese, Ms. Lyons begins her new job July 1.
