Coach, Administrator, 1968-2000
When Walt and Judy Green came to Cardinal Gibbons in 1968, little did they realize all the “hats” he would be wearing.
Father Dennehy hired him as the head football coach and that job grew into head baseball and freshman basketball coach. In his 5 years of coaching football, Walt never had a losing season and each year won the league championship. In 1973 Father Dennehy bestowed the job of Dean of Students on Walt, and from that time he was given the title of “Dean Green” (sometimes with the word mean added to the beginning). For 27 years Dean Green held the responsibility of disciplining students, as well as conducting our annual school raffle and raising money for “Kids in Distress.” All three of Dean and Judy Green’s children (twins Carrie and Gail, and son Chris), are Gibbons graduates and their grandchild is now a freshman here as well.
The Greens are now enjoying retirement in Sapphire, North Carolina, where he was elected to the local area council and serves in a position comparable to municipal mayor. They love traveling and most of all spending time with their children and grandchildren.
