This year, Crespi Carmelite High School has established the John King Fund for Faculty & Staff Excellence to support the school’s commitment to improving its academic quality and reputation by rewarding, recognizing, and retaining the best faculty and staff.
Crespi faculty, of which 90% hold advanced degrees, are dedicated to the young men they serve. They are mentors who listen and observe the talents and challenges of our Celts, and over the course of four years, get to know and appreciate each student.
Bright and energetic, caring and accessible, Crespi teachers, coaches, and administrators are committed to their students’ success.
We are proud to name this fund for beloved teacher John King, who retired from Crespi after 47 years. During his tenure, Mr. King coached football, taught English, served as Dean of Discipline and was Chairman of the English department.
Most importantly, he was a faith-filled role model and mentor to generations of Celts, who still recognize him as a figure that played a meaningful role in their Crespi experience. Crespi Carmelite is excited to honor Mr. King’s legacy as we attract, develop and retain first-class educators.
