Roncalli Catholic named Tom Kassing as its new Assistant Principal and Activities Director on March 21.
RCHS principal JJ Stoffel led the search committee made up of key staff, board members and parents charged with hiring for the Assistant Principal/Activities Director position. After a thorough search and interview process, Kassing stood out as the candidate ready to lead the Crimson Pride’s Athletics and Activities Department. “We were overwhelmed with the number of applications we received, and after a number of interviews it was very clear that Tom was the perfect fit to continue the momentum of growing our athletics and activities to an elite level,” Stoffel said. “Tom showed a vision and clear plan of where he plans to excel the school.”
Kassing started his career at Roncalli Catholic in 2013 as a social studies teacher. Kassing has held multiple coaching positions and led multiple school sponsored clubs over the past 10 years and has most recently been the head football coach since 2016.
Roncalli Catholic has seen success in its sports and activities over the school’s history, most recently winning a state basketball championship in 2022. Kassing is ready to build upon past successes and is excited to see where the Crimson Pride will be in the future. “I am excited to see all of our programs succeed at RCHS, but that doesn’t just happen, it involves a lot of hard work from all of our staff and students.”
Kassing will officially start his new role as the Assistant Principal and Activities Director on July 1, 2023.
