This reception, open to students, parents, teachers, the business community and the public at large, will serve as the formal introduction of William T. Dwyer High School’s new principal, Mr. Joe DePasquale, to the entire community. It will also give everyone an opportunity to network and meet each other, while getting to know Mr. DePasquale a little bit better.
Joe DePasquale was born and raised in Niles, Ohio. After graduating from high school in 1980, DePasquale attended Youngstown State University where he received a B.S. Degree in Secondary Education in 1984. A few years later he joined St. Cloud High School, Orlando, Fla., as a teacher and coach.
