Don Bosco Technical Institute (Bosco Tech) has named Vincent Nolasco as its new Athletic Director.
“It is my great pleasure to welcome back Mr. Nolasco on behalf of the Tech community,” said Memo Gutierrez, the school’s President. “As a Tech alumnus, Vince understands the effective Salesian educational system that is known worldwide for its focus on the overall development of young people through reason, religion and kindness. We look forward to Vince’s return to campus in the important role of Athletic Director.”
Nolasco brings years of experience in athletics and teaching, most recently serving as Athletic Director and Sports Marketing Instructor at Christ the Teacher Catholic School in Newark, DE. He has both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Human Performance Science from New Mexico Highlands University. In his new role, Nolasco will oversee day-to-day operations of the Bosco Tech athletic department, as well assisting the finance office with endowments and tuition assistance. While a Tech student in the early 2000s, he was enrolled in the school’s Construction Technology program and played on the football and baseball teams.
“I am excited to be the next Athletic Director at Don Bosco Tech Institute,” said Nolasco. “I’d like to thank the school’s administration and search committee for believing in me and providing me with this tremendous opportunity. Having spent the past eight years working in various athletic roles from elementary to NCAA Division II athletics, I have a great appreciation for the Tech’s amazing athletic facilities and teams in which student-athletes develop. I can’t wait to see these young people grow in Christ and in sportsmanship. I’m excited to join the Bosco Tech community!”
