Holy Name High School’s 2015 Alumni Weekend was a huge success, thanks to the support of Namer alumni and friends who attended and volunteered at the many events and activities that were held Thursday, June 11 through Saturday, June 13!
The weekend-long celebration began with the Eugene T. Krakowiak Golf Classic on Thursday at Pine Hills Golf Club. Nearly 100 golfers participated, with the foursome of Brian Bobula ’94, Larry Houser ’94, Chad Trush ’94, and Dan Trush ’96 winning the Classic. The golfers loved playing at Pine Hills, and enjoyed the Pig Roast catered by Chad Trush ’94 and the Islander Bar & Grille. Most importantly, over $9,000 was raised to benefit the Eugene T. Krakowiak Scholarship Fund – more than double the amount brought in last year!
On Friday, graduates from the Class of 1945 through the Class of 2010 gathered to reminisce and share their favorite high school memories at the All-School Reunion in Holy Name’s Memorial Gymnasium. While connecting with classmates, DJ Marc Majers ’90 played music that included top hits from the decades represented, and Coyne Catering provided amazing appetizers and desserts.
Saturday also featured a full day of events, beginning with the annual Holy Name Big Creek 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk. Brian DePauw ’14 made Namer Nation proud as the overall 5K Run Winner! The day continued with the 3-on-3 Alumni Basketball Tournament, where Class of 2010 graduates Corey Elliott, Sean Hartman, and Matthew Herron won the championship game.
Throughout Saturday afternoon, Holy Name’s back parking lot was filled with NamerFEST attendees! Kids of all ages loved the face painting and tie-dye t-shirt making stations, while everyone enjoyed the hamburgers and hot dogs cooked by Coyne Catering. New Namers from the incoming freshmen class of 2019 also joined in the fun, building friendships while playing cornhole, basketball, and volleyball! The action-packed, beautiful day then concluded with a special Chapel Mass celebrated by the Rev. James Batcha ’76.
We invite Holy Name alumni, students, parents, and friends to join us once again on Friday, September 18 for our Homecoming Tailgate at North Royalton’s Serpentini Stadium! More details about the Homecoming festivities will be announced later this summer. We hope to see you there, and thank you for continuing to support the Holy Name Community.
On Friday, May 22, 146 members of the Holy Name High School Class of 2015 received their diplomas during a beautiful ceremony at St. Columbkille Church in Parma. Delivering this year’s address to the graduates was George Selim, a proud Parma native and 1998 graduate of Holy Name. Mr. Selim is now a director for the National Security Council at The White House in Washington, DC. To hear his speech, which encouraged the graduates to set goals, work hard and show compassion, view the video below:
Congratulations to all members of the Class of 2015! The Holy Name Community wishes you the best of luck in the future, and looks forward to hearing about your successes soon.

This May, our talented student actors, actresses, musicians and artists worked tirelessly to make the Spring Musical, as well as the Spring Concert and Art Show, a success! Students who performed in The Drowsy Chaperone did a fantastic job bringing the musical comedy to life, earning rave reviews from those in attendance.
The Spring Concert and Art Show also did not disappoint. The Jazz Band, String Ensemble, Mixed Choir and Symphonic Band all delivered fantastic performances, while the student art work on display captured everyone’s attention. In all of these performances and shows, our seniors especially sparkled, giving them one last chance to shine as Holy Name students.
The fine arts are alive and well at Holy Name, and we can’t wait to see what the Art and Drama Departments have planned for next school year!
So many of our seniors participated in spring sports over the last four years, and we are happy to recognize them for their teamwork, dedication and leadership. Whether they participated in softball or baseball, lacrosse or track and field, these student-athletes represented Holy Name well. We will miss watching them compete next spring, but wish them the best of luck in the future!
Today was the senior class’s final day of exams. As we prepare to say goodbye to them as a school community during tomorrow’s Baccalaureate Mass and Tribute to Mary Ceremony, we remember all they have done to make the Holy Name school community a better place.
In particular, we thank all who participated in our Campus Ministry program, were members of Cenacle of Mary and led our Girls’ Kairos and Guys’ Kairos Retreats. Your leadership, kindness and devotion to your faith will never be forgotten, and your fellow classmates will always remember the example you have set for them to follow. May God Bless the Class of 2015!
