John Craig is a 1997 graduate of West Deptford High School. He continued his academic career at York College of Pennsylvania, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice.  Upon graduation from college, he attended the Gloucester County Police Academy and began his career with the West Deptford Police Department. John has been assigned to numerous units within the department throughout his career, including serving as the district’s School Resource Officer for eight years. During his time as the School Resource Officer, John also served as the Varsity Wrestling Coach at West Deptford High School. He still remains active within the school district and the community, serving as a LEAD instructor at the West Deptford Middle School and as an Executive Board member of the West Deptford Police Athletic League. He is currently assigned as a Detective Corporal within the Criminal Investigations Unit of the West Deptford Police Department.

       John is married to his wife, Jennifer. They have three daughters: Ashley, Katelyn, and Abigail who all attend West Deptford Schools.  John feels very fortunate that his daughters have had many positive experiences up to this point in their academic careers, which he believes is a direct reflection of the dedication exhibited by the faculty and staff at all levels within the school district. “I believe that our schools are the centerpiece of the community, and their success or failure has a direct impact on every resident of West Deptford.  I look forward to serving on the Board of Education and focusing my efforts on making a positive impact for all of our residents, while ensuring that our students are receiving a quality education and are well prepared for the future.”
