Margaret Camire’s academic career began in North Attleborough and on Monday night, she returned to the town for a new role.
Camire was appointed to the role of student services director, previously held by Julieann Hoell. Committee member Ethan Hamilton abstained from the vote, citing a longtime friendship with Camire. Nineteen people applied for the position, and narrowed down to six finalists.
“The team is excited because they have someone they can grow from,” said Superintendent Scott Holcomb.
Camire worked for many years in the Holliston School District, serving as director of student services for seven years. She has also been a high school student services administrator and special education inclusion teacher. Her work as an educator started at the North Attleborough Middle School, where she worked as a substitute teacher.
In a statement from Holcomb read at the meeting, Camire’s wealth of knowledge was a factor in choosing her for the position, including meeting the needs of students, managing grants, and working collaboratively with staff.
“I’ve been very appreciative and impressed with my time in North Attleborough,” said Camire. “I’ve seen the students in action and that was the final piece if this would be the right match.”
