Moreau named asst. principal/AD at Dirigo H.S.
DIXFIELD -- The challenge will be a new chapter in the life of Chris Moreau, who was named on May 9 as the new Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Dirigo High School.
The 38 year old is certainly familiar with the territory, who currently serves a dual role as assistant principal/co-curricular director at Lisbon and is equally versed in the importance of the Mountain Valley Conference.
Moreau will replace Charlie Swan, who has been named the new Principal at Dirigo Elementary.
“The committee and board were very impressed with his experience as an administrator,” said Dr. Tom Ward. “He is very high energy and enthusiastic. He is the vice president of the MVC.”
”My wife and I chose to come home to the MVC after traveling around the state to get my experience,” said Moreau, who has been an AD at Sumner, Dexter and Scarborough. “The MVC is where I grew up, and it is where I want my kids to grow up as well. It has been a dream come true and this position at Dirigo is a blessing for me and my family. We count ourselves very fortunate to have been given this opportunity to work there.”
Moreau graduated from Jay in 1990 and from the University of Maine at Farmington with a BS Degree in Education. He also earned an administrative certification through the University of Southern Maine.
Moreau considers himself fortunate to have been allowed the opportunity to serve as the vice presidents of a great conference.
”This school is widely considered one of the great Class C schools in the state,” said Moreau, who student taught at Dirigo. “Their athletic programs are always competitive – and the challenge of enhancing their already successful programs is truly exciting! The
students, staff, and administration are first class. I am very excited about this professional opportunity and very thankful to the folks in RSU #10, and Dirigo High School
for welcoming me and my family to the family.”
The Dixfield-based school offers its students and athletes a strong foundation and allows them to experience a great deal.
"I believe whole heartedly that I am a student first administrator,” said Moreau. "Teens are unique in many ways, therefore you have to treat each individually. It is tricky to do the dual role in small schools – you need to be the biggest cheerleader in the school while also being the school disciplinarian – not an easy task to say the least – but it is a challenge I freely accept and am excited to be part of it at Dirigo.”
Moreau personally believes on the athletic/ co-curricular side that it begins and ends with Sportsmanship.
Moreau and his family reside in Jay and this new position would be a shorter commute for him.
"It allows me to be dad and husband a little more. I am truly blessed with an amazing wife (Michelle) and (five) children. Colby will be daddy’s 'AD’s' helper – and is very excited to come with daddy and help the Cougars.”
