Upon the recommendation of the Board of Trustees and the superintendent of schools, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge (Bishop of the Diocese of Raleigh), appoints Mr. Craig Conticchio principal of John Paul II Catholic High School effective July 1, 2016. Mr. Conticchio currently serves the school as assistant principal. He replaces Mr. John Donohue, who has been named principal of Saint John Paul II Catholic School in Southern Pines, NC.

“I wish Mr. Donohue prayerful best wishes as he transitions to his new position," said Bishop Burbidge. "I have great confidence in Mr. Conticchio as he begins his tenure as principal of JPII High School. He brings with him a great deal of energy and enthusiasm as well as a deep love of our Catholic Faith. I am sure that he will lead the school in an exemplary manner and that his commitment to Catholic education in the Greenville area will allow the school to continue to grow and become the quality Catholic high school that is needed and expected.”
