Michael Yanniello is the Director of Athletics, assists with the Student Life Program and runs the Food and Nutrition Program at Cristo Rey Dallas. These programs give students options to explore the varied and enriching opportunities that CRD offers while ensuring that they have nutritious meals every day.
Mr. Yanniello graduated from Jesuit Dallas and received his degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University. His experiences with his high school counselors and those he had met as A&M’s Director of Relay for Life led him to focus on the study of adolescent development and behavior. After graduating from college, Mr. Yanniello was called to join the founding staff of Cristo Rey Dallas. Since joining CRD, Mr. Yanniello has helped countless students find their passions through various sports, club offerings and after school events.
If he’s not at a Cristo Rey Dallas event, you will probably find Mr. Yanniello at the gym lifting weights, playing any number of sports with friends or spending time with his wife at the Dallas Farmers Market or local taco shops.
