Scoreboard Dedicated To Kim Kell
The scoreboard on the athletic field at Goretti was recently dedicated in honor of longtime teacher and coach Kim Kell.

Since the mid-1970′s, Mr. Kell has filled many roles on campus, from teacher to baseball coach and many, many more.
The Goretti family would like to thank Mr. Kell for his countless contributions to our community!
