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.
Thankfulness and Gratitude from Holy Name on #weGiveCatholic
On behalf of the entire Holy Name community, I hope you all were able to celebrate a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends. During this season of thankfulness, I am grateful for the gifts you and so many parents, alumni and friends have shared with Holy Name this year.
Before we went on Thanksgiving Break, our students had their own chance to reflect on what they were most thankful for this year. Students were especially grateful for a recent visit from newly installed Diocese of Cleveland Bishop Nelson J. Perez. In the video message below, students share their gratitude for his visit.
As you can see, Holy Name is fortunate to not only have had Bishop Perez as a visitor, but also to have students who have their hearts open to his message of allowing God to work in them, through them and despite them. They are using their talents to develop the Triple Threat of mind, body and spirit.
Your generosity helps Holy Name better prepare students for the days and years ahead. Beginning at Midnight tonight, on #WeGiveCatholic (Giving Tuesday), please consider supporting Holy Name at https://www.wegivecatholic.org/organizations/holy-name-high-school and making a difference in the lives of our young men and women. They are grateful for your help and join me in saying thank you, and God bless you this holiday season.
All Hail Holy Name,
Terrence J. Kenneally ’67
President, Holy Name High School
