ATTLEBORO, MA – Bishop Feehan High School is proud to announce that two former, long-time staffers of the school will be returning in key leadership positions. And one current long-term leader of the school has decided to remain in place for one more year.
Mrs. Charlotte Lourenco, current principal of St. Mary - Sacred Heart school in North Attleboro will be returning to Bishop Feehan as Feehan’s Vice Principal for Academics. Bishop Feehan graduate and current principal of Blessed Sacrament School in Walpole, Mr. Dustin Demers ‘01, will return to Feehan as Senior Director of Admissions and Campus Operations. Additionally, current Vice Principal for Student Life, Mr. Al Svendsen – after initially deciding that this would be his final year in the role – has decided to return for the 2022-23 school year.
The two new leaders to Feehan will begin their roles on July 1, 2022.
“Leadership is essentially important for Feehan, especially leadership that embraces and embodies our Feehan mission and values,” offers Bishop Feehan President Tim Sullivan. “In Mrs. Lourenco, Mr. Demers and of course in Mr. Svendsen, we have leaders who know our culture and who want nothing more than to serve Feehan, our students and our families. All of these leaders believe deeply in Catholic education. They each will make Feehan a stronger school in their own unique ways.”
Mrs. Lourenco returns to Feehan after six years as Principal at St.Mary-Sacred Heart school in North Attleboro, Prior to that, Charlotte taught social studies at Feehan for eight years, including one year as department co-chair. She has a M.Ed. in Literacy from Providence College and this month will earn M.Ed. in Educational Leadership and Policy from Boston College as a member of the first Catholic Leadership Cohort of the Lynch School of Education. She lives in Providence with her husband James, himself a Catholic school educator, and two children, Henry and Olivia.
Mr. Demers, a proud 2001 graduate of Feehan, returns to his alma mater after four years as Principal at Blessed Sacrament School in Walpole, MA. Dustin will serve as the school’s admissions leader, including maintaining and establishing new relationships with key external audiences and partner schools. And he will also take on a newly-created role coordinating all facilities, campus operations and master calendar functions at Feehan.
Mr. Demers earned both a B.A. and M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Providence College. Previously at Feehan, Mr. Demers was a social studies teacher and long-time tennis coach. His wife, Mrs. Megan Ryan-Demers ‘04, is also on the Feehan faculty as a campus minister and theology teacher. Mr. and Mrs. Demers hope to see their children, Declan and Mairead (Maisie), at Feehan, in ten years or so.
