Class of ’99 Alum Announced as New Campus Store Retail and Merchandising Coordinator

Posted August 5th, 2015

St. Augustine Prep is pleased to announce that Manny Dijamco has recently started in the position of Campus Store Retail and Merchandising Coordinator. In this role, Manny will assume responsibility for the daily operations of PREP SHOP, and will oversee everything from stocking and inventory to customer service. He is especially enthusiastic to begin developing new apparel and product ideas, to provide the Prep community with even more ways to showcase Hermit pride.

Manny is a 1999 graduate of the Prep and maintains a strong passion for the school that will serve our community well. ?I knew the Prep was a special place from the moment I set foot on campus as a freshman,” he said. “To be blessed with the opportunity to come back and serve the school in any capacity is a surreal feeling. I am truly a ‘grateful son’ of St. Augustine Prep and view this blessing more as a vocation rather than a job.”

Manny brings a wealth of experience in the retail space, most recently working at Ashley Furniture as a Sales Manager. He looks forward to applying retail-based best practices to PREP SHOP, while maintaining the family atmosphere of the store. “The aim is to continue the vision of our merchandise to be fitting of the school’s passionate supporters, our distinguished alumni, and of course our unique student body,” Manny observed. “The upcoming school year has a lot in store for our students and the rest of the Prep community; PREP SHOP is no exception and I look forward to meeting and speaking with everyone that stops by to browse through our exciting new merchandise.”

Welcome back, Manny!
