Hal Dupuy ’73 Named CHS Development Director

Harold D. ‘Hal’ Dupuy ’73 has been named the Catholic High School Development Director effective November 5, 2007.

Hal will complete 30 years of service with the Information Technology Division of the Louisiana Department of Social Services in October 2007. During his time at the Department of Social Services, he has served as computer programmer, applications project leader, webmaster and director of information technology project management. He will work closely with the current CHS Development Director, Dr. Greg Brandao ’73, during the coming weeks to facilitate a smooth transition.

Hal, whose father is a 1936 CHS graduate, has maintained an active status at Catholic High since graduating in 1973. He has served two terms on the CHS Alumni Board, is currently in his 13th year on the CHS Men’s Club Executive Committee, and has served as an adult facilitator for eight years on the CHS and SJA senior retreats.

"I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the entire Catholic High family in this capacity. I look forward to working with the administration, faculty, students and their parents, benefactors, alumni and the many friends that share the same love for CHS that I do," commented Hal.

‘I am thrilled to have Hal joining CHS as Development Director,’ said Gene Tullier, president of Catholic High School. ‘His warm, friendly personality, deep roots in the CHS community and prior work experience make him a huge asset to CHS.’

In addition to being a graduate of Catholic High, Dupuy earned a Bachelor of Science in marketing from the University of Southwestern Louisiana.

Hal and his wife of 29 years, Tyr_, have two sons, Jordan ’98 and Chad ’00.
