Ali Goljahmofrad, better known as "Mr. G," Dean of Students for the past three years, will bid farewell to Central Catholic at the end of July. Mr. G. will begin a new chapter in his professional career as the Assistant Director - Space & Engineering Technologies Academy at Krueger Middle School in the North East Independent School District.
Mr. G acknowledges and thanks the school leadership, faculty, Central families, and current and future students. "I am unequivocally a better man because of you," says Mr. G.
Mr. G wanted to especially thank our students by saying, “Our interactions have made this such an unbelievably rich experience. You make Central Catholic what it is. I have loved watching you grow, and you will never fully understand what you mean to me."
As Mr. G wraps up his final days at the end of this month, we are happy to announce Mr. Dan McCarthy will serve as interim Dean of Students until the school can begin a search process to find a permanent replacement at a time to be determined. With this appointment as interim, Mr. McCarthy will be responsible for all student development programs, and student discipline, and oversee all student groups on campus.
President Jason Longoria ‘96 says the following about Mr. McCarthy, “His experience over the past 9 years at Central has seen him serve in a variety of roles that impact our students every day. His personality, his love of the Central Catholic family, and his passion to grow our young men into faith-filled leaders in their community make him the perfect person to step in. I have no doubt he will do an excellent job in building a culture of excellence and working with our families and faculty to serve the student body. We are excited for the future of Central Catholic with Mr. McCarthy here to serve.”
