Board of Directors


Greg Bishop: Though now living in Charlotte, North Carolina, Greg spent much of his life along the Maine coast. A native of Portland, Greg graduated from Cheverus High School.

After earning a degree in Political Science at the University of Southern Maine, he simultaneously entered the Masters program in Public Policy and Management at the Muskie School of Public Service and took over as the Director of Admissions at Cheverus.
