Hall of Fame

The Central Catholic High School Hall of Fame recognizes Central Catholic alumni - and other prominent members of the Central Catholic community - who have brought honor to the school through their achievements both during their high school years and after. We honor them in the Hall of Fame with the hope that their achievements will serve as an example for others.
