Bronx, New York: Father Joseph P. Tierney, President of Cardinal Hayes, and the Board of Trustees are pleased to announce today the promotion of two key staff members to leadership positions. Craig Joseph has been named Assistant Principal in charge of Enrollment and Sports Management, and Francisco Lameiro has been appointed Assistant Principal Strategic Planning and Supervisor of Instruction.

I look forward to working with them as we continue to build on the traditions of academic excellence and prepare our young men for university level study.”

Joseph, who is an alumnus of Hayes, graduated from Mercyhurst College in 2004 with a degree in business administration. Joseph currently teaches freshman algebra and is the Director of Admissions. In addition to these duties, he has successfully served as Head Coach of both the Cardinal Hayes Track program and Junior Varsity Football team.

Most recently, he took part in the Google Chromebook Classroom initiative where students use this state of the art educational platform as a tool to enhance their learning experience.

It is very confidence inspiring to know that the Cardinal Hayes administrative leadership has this level of trust in me. I intend to bring energy to our instruction approach, to make sure our curriculum meets the demands of today’s students, while creating an atmosphere where faculty and students routinely collaborate.”
