Macrino takes interim post at St. Bernard


MONTVILLE — Donald Macrino has been selected to serve as the interim head of school at St. Bernard School, effective July 1.

The school’s board of directors asked Macrino, an experienced area educator and administrator, for interim help through June 30, 2015. A search for a long-term head of school will begin in the late fall of 2014.

Macrino, a native of New London, was a teacher of English and dean of students at New London High School and assistant principal of Clark Middle School in Waterford. From 1997 through 2013, he was principal of Waterford High School. Most recently, Macrino filled interim principal positions at Veteran’s Memorial School in Norwich and at Wheeler Middle School and High School in North Stonington.

Macrino was the recipient in 2013 of the Roman Catholic Church’s Cross of Honor, or Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice, the papal medal that is the church’s highest honor to the laity. Macrino was also recognized as the 2008 Connecticut Principal of the Year.
