PROVIDENCE — Most Rev. Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of Providence, has appointed Lara Wibeto as Principal of All Saints STEAM Academy.
“As an experienced educator and a true person of faith, Lara Wibeto will bring a wide range of skills and leadership to the already vibrant and strong community at All Saints STEAM Academy,” said Rev. Msgr. Albert A.

We wish her well in her retirement.”

Wibeto resides in coastal South County, Rhode Island with her husband, Scott, and three children.
