EAST GREENWICH â€” Sitting in front of the members of the East Greenwich School Committee on Tuesday night near the stage at Cole Middle School, Neil Marcaccio looked at the members the same way as he did at a slew of presents underneath a Christmas tree as a child.
It wasnâ€™t quite the same as physically unwrapping the gifts on Christmas for the North Kingstown native, but when Committee chairperson Deidre Gifford said â€ścongratulations,â€ť the elation upon receiving a present was just the same.
Following months of intense searching and going through a slew of candidates, Superintendent Victor Mercurio gave his formal recommendation and the committee approved the hiring of Marcaccio as the new principal for Meadowbrook Farms Elementary School beginning this upcoming school year.
