St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute will have a new principal for the 2018-2019 school year. Alumnus James Spillman will move into the role beginning July 1st.
Spillman is a '95 graduate of St. Joe's who earned his bachelor's and two master's degrees from Boston College. He has an extensive background in education, and has been a teacher, campus minister, dean of students and principal at other schools.
Current Principal Brother Christopher Belleman, FSC, announced he would be stepping down from the position June 30th to return to teaching full-time.
"I am extremely humbled and honored to have the opportunity to return home to my alma mater – a school community that was so foundational in my own development as a young man," Spillman was quoted saying in a press release sent out by the school. "I look forward to partnering with Dr. Fulco and the staff of SJCI to educate, form, and transform this new generation of St. Joe's students."
