Brenda Kelly Retires as Cheerleading Coach


After 20 years of coaching our spirited and talented cheerleading squads, Coach Brenda Kelly has announced her retirement. Kelly started as a JV Coach at Cathedral in 2000, and has been the head coach of our varsity cheerleaders for the past 17 years. Our cheerleaders have advanced to Nationals the last 15 years, with their best finish being fourth place. Kelly cheered at Franklin College, which is where she met her husband, Joe. Joe Kelly is a 1974 Cathedral graduate, and was Father Pat Kelly’s first cousin. Kelly also has two children who attended Cathedral, Brandon ’01 and Kristin ’04. We are so appreciative for Brenda Kelly’s service to Cathedral, and wish her all the best in her retirement!
