Joe Gdovin ’11 is HGP’s new assistant director of admissions

Joe Gdovin ’11 has been hired as Holy Ghost Prep’s new assistant director of admissions.

For the last two years, Gdovin taught English at Notre Dame High School in New Jersey, along with helping coach the Holy Ghost Prep cross country and track and field teams.

He officially joined Ryan Abramson ’94 and Cindy McDonald in the admissions office in early July and is thrilled about his return home to Holy Ghost Prep.

“Holy Ghost Prep has been part of who I am for as long as I can remember,” says Gdovin. “It truly is a dream come true to be able to work at a place that is so special to me.”

Gdovin began his career in education at HGP, teaching and working in the summer enrichment program while he was still a student at Penn State.  During this time, he was an inspirational teacher and mentor to many future HGP students.  Joe also spent time working for the Trenton Thunder baseball team—helping in the front office, in-game promotions and even dressing as the team mascot. 

“Joe’s experience as a member of our summer staff, his time as a classroom teacher, and his passion for Holy Ghost Prep makes him an ideal new member of the admissions office,” says Ryan Abramson ’94, director of admissions. “Cindy and I are very excited to welcome Joe back to HGP and to work with him throughout the year.”

A graduate of Penn State University with B.S. in Secondary Education, Gdovin completed his Pennsylvania student teaching at the Bucks County Technical High School and is certified in both secondary English education and secondary speech communication. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree at La Salle University.  

His two older brothers, Jack ’03 and Pete ’05, are also Holy Ghost Prep graduates.
