ATTLEBORO, MA – Bishop Feehan High School is proud to announce the 13 new faculty members who have joined the staff on Holcott Drive.
"We couldn't be happier to have these exceptionally talented faculty join the Feehan Family," said Feehan President Tim Sullivan ‘87. "We had several Feehan legends retire last fall, and we added a new full-time Campus Ministry position, so this was an important year for us hiring-wise. Thankfully, we had a host of talented and experienced Catholic educators applying to join our terrific staff here at Feehan. Of course, we are also thrilled to welcome four Feehan alumni back to campus."
