EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Dianne D. Veilleux, who had been assistant superintendent for seven years, has taken charge as superintendent of the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools.

She succeeds Brian J. Loughlin, who retired Sept. 1 after 40 years with the district and seven as superintendent.

The board of education voted in May to appoint Veilleux after a subcommittee interviewed 10 candidates for the position, narrowing the choice to three finalists.

“It’s an honor,” she said. “I have a lot of pride in our district and I’m optimistic about the future. We have an impressive staff who are skilled, hard-working and dedicated. I know we are going to do great things.”

Brian Bilal, formerly principal of the School of Career Development on the MCVTS Piscataway Campus, has been named assistant superintendent.

Veilleux, who has worked her entire career in the district, is a graduate of Sayreville High School and has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rutgers University. She is a resident of Belmar.

She started her career as a school social worker and has been assistant principal of the East Brunswick Campus, district substance abuse awareness coordinator, district supervisor of special education, and principal of the Middlesex County Academy for Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences in Woodbridge.

“I am confident that Dianne and her team will continue the stellar tradition of the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools, preparing our students to succeed in college and in their careers,” Loughlin said. “I am honored to have been able to serve the people of Middlesex County for so long.”

The Middlesex County Vocational and Technical School District, the first full-time county vocational school district in the nation, has seven schools on five campuses, in East Brunswick, Edison, Piscataway, Perth Amboy and Woodbridge. The Perth Amboy Campus, the Edison Academy and the Woodbridge Academy have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools. The East Brunswick Campus has been designated a National Green Ribbon School in recognition of its “green” curriculum and sustainable building management practices.
