Daniel Stabile, a college and academic counselor at Bishop O’Connell High School, has been reappointed a commissioner of the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS).
“Middle States commissioners serve an important role in helping to improve the quality of education in the U.S. and around the world,” said MSA-CESS interim president Henry Cram. “We are grateful to Dr. Stabile for his commitment to Middle States and for volunteering his expertise to helping schools grow and improve through accreditation.”
Stabile has been a school counselor since 2007. Previously, he served as principal of Holy Redeemer Catholic School in Washington, D.C., and was the former director of Navy Schools Overseas and Navy Impact Aid Schools, as well as the president of the NASA STEM School Administrators Association.
Stabile served as president of the National Council for the Promotion of the Italian Languages in American Schools. In 2011, he was awarded Commendatore in the Order of the Star of Italy, a title given by the President of Italy to Italians abroad who have promoted ties with Italy.
Stabile was a recipient of the 2009 NASA Outstanding Educator Award, and also received the F. Laird Evans Outstanding Volunteer Award from MSA-CESS.
“I am honored to continue my service as a commissioner for Middle States,” said Stabile, who lives in Falls Church. “Having guided close to two dozen schools through the Middle States accreditation process, I know first-hand that accreditation is one of the most effective ways for schools – and, most importantly, students – to grow, develop, and improve with measurable results.”
MSA-CESS currently has more than 2,500 accredited schools and school systems in 39 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and in more than 110 countries. For information on the organization, see the Website at www.msa-cess.org.
