Having joined the Daniel Webster College community back in 1983,
its seems there's almost no role that Paul Labarre hasn't filled at
one time or another during his tenure.
Now in his 20th year serving Daniel Webster ice hockey, Labarre's roots with the Eagles program goes back prior to the squad joining the ACHA in 1993, but it was in that season that the program lurched forward towards legitimacy with Labarre overseeing the team as its first coach, a role he filled until 1999.
Despite giving up head coach duties, Labarre has continued to serve as an assistant coach and oversees the program's daily operations.
Labarre began teaching part-time at DWC in 1983 and since that time, he has held a number of full-time positions including director of admissions, baseball coach, instructor, director of academic support services, director of alumni relations, director of graduate admissions, Air Force ROTC instructor, and currently as director of parent relations. He has also served as director of the College's highly successful Aviation Career Education (A.C.E.) camp.
Labarre spent a number of years in the military, joining the United States Navy when he was 17. Following a tour of duty, he joined the United States Air Force, where was a meteorologist and later earned a master of arts degree in Psychology from Pepperdine University.
A longtime resident of Salem, N.H., Labarre is a certified hockey referee and serves as referee-in-chief for Salem Youth Hockey. He resides in Windham, N.H.
