Chaminade Julienne has hired Scott Pierce as the school’s athletic director effective March 7. He served as the school’s interim director since July 27.
“Scott is a great fit for us. Since leading the responsibilities of the athletic office last summer, he has demonstrated a tremendous passion and desire to move CJ athletics to the next level,” said John Marshall, principal. “His knowledge of the school, our mission and our community, along with his desire to serve the greater community, will continue to benefit coaches, teams and players in a great way.
“It’s been evident that he’s made serving CJ student-athletes a priority,” Marshall said.
Prior to serving as interim athletic director, Pierce served 10 years at CJ as a teacher and a member of the football program, coaching freshman through varsity teams. During his time in the athletic office, Pierce helped foster players and coaches to multiple league titles, and district, regional and state appearances, including the Eagles 2011 Division II girl’s golf state championship.
“We’ve gained a lot of momentum with how successful our teams and student-athletes have been this school year,” Pierce said. “My goal is to build on that, continue to help grow opportunities for the Eagle program, and be a positive presence for the community, players and coaches.
“I look forward to serving student-athletes and coaches and supporting our strong Eagle tradition. When others watch our student-athletes play, they’ll get to know a little more about what we accomplish at CJ.”
