Joe Murphy ’16 returns to Saint John’s as faculty for Br. Robert Middle School Division

On July 1, Joe Murphy, Saint John’s Class of 2016, will join the Br. Robert Middle School Division team - serving as faculty for middle school Religious Studies and as the division’s Campus Minister. 

After graduating from Saint John’s, Joe went on to graduate from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a degree in Communications. During his time at Saint John’s, Joe received both the Daniel Manning Award, given to a student who shows dedication to their school, community and faith, and the Ted Provo award, given to a student-athlete who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance and dedication. 

When asked to reflect on his new position, Joe excitedly responded, “I am ecstatic to be returning to Saint John’s, a place I consider a second home. I look  forward  to working with and educating the true Pioneers in the first ever class of the Br. Robert Treanor Middle School Division - I am both thrilled and energized to be part of this new chapter in Saint John’s history. At Saint John’s, the educational experience goes far beyond the classroom; the development of strong character,  core moral values, and being a positive contributor to society takes place on the playing fields, in the halls and in every aspect of the SJ journey. The opportunity to now join the faculty and staff that helped shape me into who I am today is a dream come true, and I cannot wait to pass what I learned during my SJ experience to the students by my example, my teaching and through my role in campus ministry.”
