Central Catholic Blue & White Newsletter- Spring 2018

NOTEABLE ACHI EVEMENTS

As the Central Catholic High School mission states, “We develop men for success through the development of scholarship, leadership, and moral character.” It’s no surprise, then, that our students and graduates are doing amazing things within CCHS and out in their communities. From winning awards and being selected for competitive programs around the country to making a difference in entertainment to being recognized for career achievements, these members are making Central Catholic proud. Do you know a high school or alumnus brother who should be featured? If so, please send his story to our Communications Manager, at news@cchs-satx.org.
