Central Catholic Blue & White Newsletter- Spring 2018

ALUMNI HAPPEN INGS

MG Building Materials Central Catholic Golf Tournament Thanks to our MG Building Materials-CCHS Golf Classic sponsors and players, we had another very successful tournament at The Quarry Golf Club this past April! Final figures aren’t in yet, but projections show the tournament co-chairmen will easily meet their goal to benefit all Central students and faculty with a new 20-station computer lab (capable of cyber security studies); and state- of-the art Texas Instrument Nspire a dvanced graphing calculators for every Math student.

The winning teams of the weekend were both sponsor teams—one of Wayne Yakes’ teams (led by Coach Joe Cortez, former CCHS basketball coach) and the Silver Eagle team.

The success of this tournament is bittersweet with the passing of its name sponsor Larry Grothues—CCHS Class of ’65 and owner of MG Building Materials--just five days after the 2018 tournament. It has raised more than $333,000 i n the past four years alone to keep CCHS at the top of its game, including campus-wide WiFi; iPads; Google Chromebooks; Smart Boards; Apple computers; and green screen and cameras for the “Brother Harry Cornell S.M. Global Communications Lab, underwritten by Larry Grothues.” Special thanks to the tournament golf chairmen (Jack Lopez ’71; Jack Dysart, ’68; Bruce Tschoepe '66; René Valero '71; and Dan Elder) and important sponsors Clarence Kahlig ‘65, Wayne F. Yakes M.D., ’71, and Olive Garden Stone Oak) and all the many sponsors and donors that made it possible.
