Senior Leadership Staff
Gary Dugal began his Good Will-Hinckley career in the summer of 1993 when he was hired as a family teacher at Hall Cottage with his wife, Michelle.
The Dugals instantly fell in love with the rich history and meaningful traditions of the organization—as well as its resilient mission of helping youth in need. The teaching eventually led to work as an advisor in the Independent Living program until 1995 when Dugal found his home teaching English at Good Will-Hinckley’s Averill High School.
Over the years, Dugal also taught health and physical education and served as the school’s director of guidance, director of athletics and assistant principal. He also coached soccer, cross country, basketball, track and field, softball and baseball.
When Good Will-Hinckley’s programs were suspended in 2009, Dugal moved to Winslow Junior High School as the assistant principal and health teacher. During his time there, he earned a master’s degree in educational leadership at the University of Maine.
In August 2014, Dugal returned home to Good Will-Hinckley as the director of the College Step-Up program and the Gear-Up program’s grant coordinator. He eventually added more responsibilities as human resources director and payroll coordinator.
Dugal remained in that position until July 2019, when he became Good Will Hinckley’s vice president of operations. He was named president and executive director of the organization in 2022.
In his free time, Dugal enjoys walking in his neighborhood with his wife and their dog, Chilli, reading, puttering around his house and carrying on with his high school friends.
