Earlier this year, freshmen read “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway. After reading the book, students wrote six-word memoirs that highlighted lessons they learned during their most difficult times. These memoirs were written on pieces of old t-shirts.

The six-word memoirs were slated to be displayed on Holy Name’s campus. However, following the school closure due to COVID-19, English Teacher Miss Megan Leigh approached University Hospitals Parma Medical Center to see if they would be open to having it displayed there. UH Parma immediately jumped on-board, and now, “Never, Ever Give Up! Love, HN” is a reality there.

Holy Name has many alumni and parents who are first responders and medical care workers. We are so proud of, and grateful for, the work they do each day to protect us, especially during this pandemic.
