Read a Storey about the productive new Assistant Principal at the High School

Damian Storey, who has directed the growth of programs in his previous education positions, was named Assistant Principal at Bridgewater-Raritan High School.

The Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District Board of Education approved his hiring at its regular meeting on Tuesday, May 14, at the Wade Administration Building. 

Superintendent Bob Beers delivered the official announcement at the meeting.

Mr. Storey will begin in his new role this coming 2024-2025 school year and replace Dr. Kristia Greenberg, who recently resigned.

Mr. Storey is the second newly appointed Assistant Principal at Bridgewater-Raritan High School.

Priscilla Aniegbuna will leave the same position at the Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School to become the Assistant Principal at the high school, where she will replace Vincent Del Priore, who recently resigned. Ms. Aniegbuna will serve as an Assistant Principal at the Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School until the end of the school year.

Mr. Storey previously served as the District Humanities and English as a Second Language (ESL) Supervisor for the Manville School District.

During his tenure at Manville, he oversaw the Humanities and ESL program for a district of 1,600 students across four schools, implementing initiatives that significantly impacted student learning and engagement. His accomplishments include overhauling the ESL program to support a two-year, 46 percent growth in the PreK-12 ESL student population, revamping the district's ESL intake program, and spearheading district-wide professional development initiatives. Mr. Storey has also been instrumental in implementing innovative programs such as the Dual Enrollment program, enabling students to earn college credits while still in high school.

Before his role in Manville, he served as an English teacher at Piscataway High School, where he increased student enrollment in AP English Language and Composition by 450 percent over 10 years and played a crucial role in addressing disproportionality in AP English enrollment for students of color. He also served as Piscataway High School's softball coach.

Mr. Storey is thrilled to begin his new challenge.

 "I am truly honored and humbled to be joining the Bridgewater-Raritan High School team under the leadership and wisdom of Mr. (Dan) Hemberger,” Mr. Storey said. “I am committed to building strong relationships and fostering a culture of excellence and opportunity.”

Principal Hemberger attended the Board of Education meeting on May 14, where Mr. Storey presented this statement.

“Every student deserves a seat at the table. I’ve seen amazing transformations happen for young people when you give them a chance to sit at the table of opportunity,” he explained.  “Bridgewater-Raritan has some truly amazing programs that will offer amazing opportunities for  all of our kids.”

Mr. Storey, who holds his Master's Degree in School Administration from Rowan University, lives in High Bridge with his wife, Jessica, and children, Luke Damian (12) and Harper Blue (11).
