HN Mourns the Loss of Christine Cieplowski Mahnic ’75

It is with great sadness that we inform the Holy Name community about the passing of Christine Cieplowski Mahnic ’75. Mrs. Mahnic had a passion for helping the students of Holy Name. She loved attending the music concerts, and was instrumental in establishing the Holy Name High School Mahnic Family Music Fund. We will miss her, and ask that all in the Holy Name Family pray for her and her family, especially her husband, Bill ’75.

Visitation for Mrs. Mahnic will be Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at St. Basil the Great (8700 Brecksville Rd., Brecksville), followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 1:30 p.m.


Holy Name Mourns the Passing of Alumnus Marlo Termini ’45

Holy Name High School is saddened to announce the passing of Mr. Marlo Termini ’45. Mr. Termini was one of the finest, kindest Namers in Holy Name’s rich history. He was a beloved former Holy Name coach who frequently came to games, and kept in touch with many of his former players.

As a school community, we are proud to have him as a member of our Athletic Hall of Fame, as well as a Doc Scullen Award recipient.

Please keep in your prayers Mr. Termini’s family, especially his wife, Rose, and sons, Mark ’74 and Mel ’77.

Services will be held on Thursday, March 22 at 11:30 a.m. at St. Monica (Garfield Heights). The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the Mass and at the Knights of Columbus Hall #4130 (Garfield Heights) following the cemetery.


Help Name the Green Wave Mascot!

Help Name the Green Wave Mascot!

Earn your place in Holy Name High School history: Help name the NEW Green Wave Mascot!

The Mascot Naming Submission Form is now open, with entries being taken until Friday, March 9 at 11:59 p.m. ET. The form asks for the nominator’s name and email address, and most importantly, what the name of the new Holy Name mascot should be. To access the submission form, visit this page by Friday night.

Once all submissions are in, the Mascot Naming Committee will review all of them and select their top choices (submissions of the same name multiple times will not influence the committee’s decision on whether or not to include them in the top choices).

A separate survey will be sent out at a later date with the top name choices included, and whichever name receives the highest amount of votes in that survey, will be the winner.

Current students, alumni, parents and friends are all invited to participate in the Mascot Naming Contest. The committee looks forward to reviewing the submissions!

Thank You for Supporting #weGiveCatholic at Holy Name!

From the entire Holy Name High School community, thank YOU for your generous support of #weGiveCatholic! During Tuesday’s day of giving, Holy Name raised $17,610. Additionally, because of a generous match from Raymond ’44 and Eleanor Smiley, all donations made will be matched, dollar-for-dollar. This doubles the impact of your gift, which makes all the difference in our mission to provide a Catholic, college preparatory education to both current and future Namers.

If you were not able to give yesterday, but would still like to give in 2017, please go to www.holynamehs.com/donate-to-hn. You can also call the Holy Name Advancement Office at 440-886-0300 ext. 104. All gifts received throughout the winter will also be included in the Smiley Matching Gift Challenge, and will be matched dollar-for-dollar, up to $45,000.

Thank you again for your continued support. Holy Name is blessed to have so many alumni, parents and friends, like you, who share their time, talents and treasures to better the lives of our young men and women.
