Donald Garecht, Principal of the Year














Donald Garecht, principal of Good Shepherd Regional School in Collingswood, was recognized as the Principal of the Year by the Diocese of Camden’s Office of Catholic Schools, in a ceremony March 1 at the school.

An educator since 1969, Garecht has been principal of the school since 2005, when it was St. John Elementary School.

Before he became principal, he was a math teacher in schools in Philadelphia and Marlton.

Calling “faith-based education a fantastic opportunity,” Garecht and his wife saw their children attend Catholic grade schools and high schools. 

For 25 years, his wife was an educator at St. William school in Philadelphia.

In accepting the honor, he acknowledged the role of “Good Shepherd, our teachers and faculty, as part of this recognition. We are a collaborative team.”

He also thanked the diocesan Office of Catholic Schools, “for their assistance and support.”
