Anthony Morales becomes new athletic director
Paso Robles High School’s current Athletic Director and Assistant Principal Tom Harrington is stepping down from his position and passing the baton to Anthony Morales, who was the former athletic director of Clovis East High School. Harrington will continue his duties as assistant principal.
Harrington has been serving as both the athletic director and assistant principal for the past three years, and served three years as principal of Templeton High School. He will continue to supervise the PE, Visual & Performing Arts, and Social Science Departments and teachers.
“I will also oversee the campus facilities and a variety of other duties,” Harrington said.
Morales previously worked as the athletic director in Clovis East High for the past nine years. He coached for eighteen years and throughout his career has won thirteen conference titles, five CIF titles, and one CIF State Championship in wrestling.
New short term goals the Athletic Department will make include upgrading facilities, increased professional development opportunities for coaches, and increasing opportunities for more student-athletes to compete at the collegiate level, as well as the long term goals of utilizing our facilities.
“My goal is to be here forever. This is where I want to retire and this is not just a short visit and go somewhere else. I want to retire here and I want to see and witness the future success of Paso Robles,” said Morales about his own long term goal.
With Harrington retiring we are seeing a change in position and with that change hopefully comes a new beginning. Paso Robles High School welcomes new Athletic Director Anthony Morales.
