The Most Rev. Joseph C. Bambera, Bishop of the Diocese of Scranton, has appointed Eugene F. Kurzejewski as interim high school principal at St. John Neumann Regional Academy for the 2015-16 academic year. Kurzejewski replaces Denise Tobin who accepted a position in Virginia.

During his educational career, Kurzejewski chaired numerous curriculum and staff development committees, assisted in developing professional staff evaluation procedures, served as a member of an instructional support team and coordinated and implemented a Classroom Friends Volunteer program, among many other accomplishments.

Kurzejewski is a member of several educational associations including the National Education Association, Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators and Pennsylvania Association of Supervision and Curriculum. He also has served as past president of BLaST Elementary Principals’ Association. He is actively involved in several community activities.

Kurzejewski is a parishioner of the Church of St. Luke. He and his wife, Marilyn, live in Jersey Shore. They have two daughters and three grandchildren.

“I am very pleased to be joining the Neumann community as principal, and working the current staff and administration in providing a first-class Catholic education to our students. I am confident that the 2015-16 school year at St. John Neumann High School will be rewarding for the entire academy family,” Kurzejewski said.
