About Gene Corrigan

One cannot speak about Charlottesville Catholic School without mentioning Gene and Lena Corrigan.  In fact, it is impossible to imagine what this school would be without them.  When the Corrigan family returned to Charlottesville in 1997, neither they nor our school’s founders knew what impact that decision would have on the brand-new school.  They have been our biggest cheerleaders since day one of their involvement, never doubting that Charlottesville Catholic School was exactly the school Charlottesville needed.  Their passion and dedication, along with Gene’s honest, intuitive, and charming nature, helped to bring many people on board and to pave the way for what the school has become twenty-five years later.  What Gene was to college athletics–a leader and giant of the industry–he also became to Charlottesville Catholic School.  

Gene’s legacy and memory live on in many ways at Charlottesville Catholic School, most noticeably in the plaque along the main hallway of the STEAM Wing, proclaiming it the “Gene and Lena Corrigan STEAM Center.”  For years, Gene was the driving force behind the Gene Corrigan Golf Tournament, which benefited the school.  This year, with his family’s blessing, we are pleased to announce the 1st Annual Gene Corrigan Memorial Golf Tournament.  Though he is no longer with us, Gene continues to support and watch over the school that he loved.
