Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School has named Travis Jarome as the school’s new athletic director effective August 1. Jarome will oversee all middle and high school athletic programs.
“Our selection committee was very impressed with the strong group of applicants we had for the athletic director position,” said Anne Ceasar, President of Montgomery Catholic.
“After much prayer and deliberation, we feel that Travis brings a unique skill set to this job and we are excited to have him join our community.”
“From his experiences as a coach, to his work with the media at the collegiate level and his education background, Travis will be a great fit for Montgomery Catholic,” said Ceasar.
Jarome comes to Montgomery Catholic from Troy University, where he has served as assistant director for media relations for the past four years.
“I am honored and humbled at the opportunity that Anne Ceasar and the selection committee have afforded me to lead the athletic department at Montgomery Catholic. The school has a long and storied history, and I look forward to building another chapter in athletics,” said Jarome.
“I have had an opportunity to learn from some of the best administrators and coaches from around the city and in the nation during my time in high school and college athletics. I will draw from those experiences and use them to lead the Catholic athletic department, using the foundation that my predecessors put in place. My family and I look forward to being a part of the Montgomery Catholic community.”
Jarome holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Auburn University Montgomery and is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Sports Management from Troy University. Prior to his time at Troy University, Jarome has served as the sports information director at Auburn University Montgomery and North Georgia College and State University.
Jarome succeeds Jim Tolbert, who recently resigned to join the staff of the Alabama High School Athletic Association.
