Howard Avril Court Dedication


John Carroll High School will be proudly dedicating its basketball court to Mr. Howard Avril on Monday, December 16th at approximately 5:45 PM. The ceremony will take place after the John Carroll High School girls’ basketball game versus Masters Academy at 4:30, and just prior to the boys’ varsity game at 6:00 PM. Coach Howard Avril served as the girls’ head coach for more than 20 years.

Mr. Avril, the former Principal of St. Helen’s Catholic School, took the job as the head coach after then Principal Clyde Russell asked him to serve as a coach, “for just one year.” Coach Avril has inspired and motivated countless players and students throughout his tenure as a JCHS coach, and is to be commended for his dedication.

The entire community, all former players, parents, alumni, and friends are invited to attend this special dedication ceremony on December 16th at 5:45 PM in the John Carroll High School gymnasium.
