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!

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!
