Holy Name High School reports
Holy Name High School will be celebrating their 100th Anniversary in 2014. To celebrate this important occasion there was a contest to design a 100 year logo. The Celebration begins January 1st, 2014 with a Mass at Old Holy Name Church and events will continues throughout the year, including an All Class Reunion at Holy Name High School in June 2014.
The logo and slogan below was unveiled at the annual auction gala held this past April. Mr. Bill Joyce designed both the logo and the slogan for this momentous occasion. Coming from a long line of Namers, Bill Joyce carried on the tradition as a football captain and as a 1995 graduate of Holy Name High School. After high school, Bill earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from Bowling Green State University in 1999. As a graphic designer, he has won numerous national and state-wide awards for publication design and the art direction of photography and illustration. Bill resides in the West Park neighborhood of Cleveland with his wife, Terry, a 1993 Holy Name graduate. They have two sons: Tom, a freshman at Holy Name, and Sean, a third-grader at St. Mark.
Holy Name would like to thank everyone who helped submit over 60 creative designs and slogans.
Holy Name High School is one of the first and always has been co-ed catholic high schools in the Cleveland Catholic Diocese. In the fall of 1914 with the Sisters of Charity Nuns from Cincinnati providing the educational leadership the school opened at Harvard & Broadway in Cleveland and then moved to Parma Heights in the fall of 1978 purchasing the Nazareth Academy building from the St. Joseph Sisters, with only fifteen principals in its 100 year history, only three were lay persons, and over 18,000 alumni this institution has made an enormous impact on our community and the world.
The philosophy of Holy Name High School remains traditional; 1. A value system based on religious principles and instruction; 2. A strong and genuine concern for each individual as a total person; and 3. The development of a cohesive school family and community.
Holy Name High School must be included in the list of valuable assets to Cuyahoga County and beyond, not only because of its excellent academic programs, but also because of the traditional values it teaches young men and women.
