Note from Tim McCleary, Director of Development and Alumni Affairs 

After 10 years at Cathedral Prep, I will no longer serve as Director of Development and Alumni Affairs.  I will be heading West to take on a role of Director of Business Development for a company in Golden, CO.  Over the years, I have truly enjoyed my time as Athletic Director, Coach, and as a member of the Advancement Team. 

I would like to thank you for all you have done for the staff, faculty, and especially the students at Cathedral.  I will always be a supporter of the Prep because of the wonderful alumni, benefactors, faculty, staff, and great young Crusaders.  I look forward to seeing you at alumni events in the future.  Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of the great history of Cathedral and especially your friendship.

I will have access to my Cathedral Prep e-mail after I leave on September 21st, if you need to contact me.

Thank you and God bless you and your family, and the entire Cathedral Community!
