HN Says Farewell & Happy Retirement to Mr. Kozlowski, Mrs. Borsz & Mr. Latona

HN Says Farewell & Happy Retirement to Mr. Kozlowski, Mrs. Borsz & Mr. Latona

This week, the Holy Name High School community said goodbye to three phenomenal teachers, as Math Teacher Mr. Mike Kozlowski, Math Teacher Mrs. Karen Borsz and Theology Teacher Mr. Lou Latona ’70 all retired.

Although they administered their last exams and entered their final grades, the important academic and life lessons they taught to thousands of Namers will remain for generations to come. These three teachers devoted countless hours to making Holy Name a welcoming, loving place, and our students, faculty and staff are better off because of it.

Thank you, Mr. Kozlowski, Mrs. Borsz and Mr. Latona. You will be missed, but remember: Once a Namer, Always a Namer!
