PORTSMOUTH — The Board of Regents of Portsmouth Abbey School Monday announced the appointment of Daniel McDonough as headmaster.

Mr. McDonough has served as acting headmaster since the retirement of Dr. James DeVecchi in June.

He joined the Portsmouth Abbey community in 1984 and has since served the School in numerous capacities, including associate headmaster, dean of faculty, academic dean, director of the Summer Program, and director of admission. He and his wife, Mary Jean, have raised their six children on the school campus.

“Dan will carry forward and build on the excellent work of those who have led the school over the past nearly nine decades,” said Rt. Rev. Dom Caedmon Holmes, O.S.B., the abbot and chancellor of the Portsmouth Abbey monastery. “The Monastic and School communities congratulate Dan on his appointment.”
