New Chief Financial Officer Shares Marian Catholic Mission By Ariel Anderson '13 Marian Catholic High School welcomed Curt Schubert as the new Chief Financial Officer this April. A graduate of DePaul University and a Certified Public Accountant, Schubert served for over ten years as Chief Financial Officer at The Children’s Place Association in Chicago before joining the Marian Catholic administrative team. Schubert is a resident of Justice, Ill. and an active member of St. Fabian Parish in Bridgeview where he has been a volunteer Religious Education teacher for almost 20 years. He relates to the mission of Marian Catholic and feels truly blessed and honored to be a part of the Marian Catholic community. “God works in our lives in subtle and mysterious ways. I firmly believe that God ‘called me’ to be part of the outstandingly talented team at Marian Catholic High School.”
When not attending to his professional duties, Schubert can usually be found at the ballpark. An avid White Sox fan, Schubert has served as an umpire for youth and adult baseball for the past ten years. Prior to umpiring, he was a volunteer little league coach for 20 years. Schubert has a long history of working with young people, a primary reason he knows Marian Catholic is the perfect fit for him. Schubert has already experienced one unique Marian Catholic moment at an all-school Mass. He acknowledged he became emotional as the Dominican Ambassadors shared their reflections as part of the homily. “Each one told a very personal faith story and they did it in front of the entire school. This showed me that the students here are very mature. They have more maturity right now in high school than I did when I was a senior in college,” said Schubert. Reflecting on the short time he has been at Marian Catholic, Schubert expressed that his experience has been better than he expected. “The people and environment here are great,” said Schubert. “So far, so awesome.”
