De La Salle High School in New Orleans, Louisiana, has appointed Michael Giambelluca, J.D., to serve as the school’s new president, effective July 16, 2016. Giambelluca will be replacing interim president, Myles M. Seghers, Ph.D., who is retiring at the end of the academic year.
In a letter to the De La Salle High School community, Giambelluca wrote, “I am grateful, humbled, honored, and excited to be the next President of De La Salle High School. Most especially, I am very much looking forward to working alongside all constituencies of the De La Salle school community to continue the wonderfully good work of former President Dr. Michael Guillot whose vision, passion, innovation, and selflessness called the De La Salle school community to a level of excellence of which St. John Baptist de La Salle, the Patron Saint of Teachers, would be proud.”
Giambelluca received his bachelor’s degree in Latin and philosophy, as well as his juris doctorate, from Tulane University. He has 26 years of experience in education, and he has served for 15 years as a Catholic school administrator, including 13 years at the high school level and two at the elementary level.
