Coleman is a member of St. Joseph’s prestigous Eagles For Life and participates in the David Dennis Memorial Bowling League.

“Coleman brings positive energy wherever he goes.” Say’s James Adams, Campus Minister and Theology Teacher. “That is absolutely what I’m going to miss most about Coleman. He’s just an optimistic, hopeful young man who’s got a lot of energy and really brings light. Wherever he goes.”

’”Coleman’s a senior who’s been here for years.” Say’s Head Baseball Coach Jared Faltysek. “He understands our expectation, what we’re trying to accomplish on a day to day basis. Brings tremendous leadership. Leads by an example. He’s the kind of kid that wants to be in that role. He excels in it. Huge team asset for us.”

Coleman has a giving spirit too. Which he admits can create its own set of problems.

”Times it can become really stressful and it’s a lot and I’m reminded that on a daily basis.” Say’s Classroom Champion Coleman Gurganus. “But my secret. I want to be doing something. I always want to be, you know, whether it’s work, whether it’s sports, whether it’s school, whether it’s a club at school. I just want to be doing something. I cannot say no to people. So I guess my secret might be my greatest fault at the same time.”

Coleman plans on attending Auburn University and majoring in English Creative Writing. Congratulations to Coleman Gurganas of St. Joseph Catholic School. This week’s news 3 sports Classroom Champion.
