The Lady Namers had a tremendous season, finishing with a 19-3 regular season record. They were crowned Great Lakes Conference Champions with an undefeated conference record. They took that momentum into the playoffs – held at Holy Name – and were able to get by Bay and Rocky River in the district semifinals and finals, respectively, to become Northeast District Champions. The team traveled to Lexington High School for Regionals, where they defeated Oak Harbor and Willard, winning each time in three straight sets to become Regional Champions and booking their ticket to the Nutter Center for the Final Four!

Congratulations to the 2018 volleyball team! Namer Nation wishes the team the best of luck down in Dayton!

Shelbrey Blanc Announced as new Principal

Shelbrey Blanc Announced as new Principal

Holy Name High School | March 10, 2014

The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland is pleased to announce that we have successfully completed our search for a new Principal of Holy Name High School. Effective July 1, 2014 Shelbrey Blanc ’95 will become the new principal of Holy Name. Mrs. Blanc is currently the Assistant Principal for Curriculum and Teacher Supervision at Holy Name, a position she has held since 2009. She will become the first female lay principal in Holy Name’s history.
During her high school years at Holy Name she was freshman and sophomore class president, a 4 year participant on the track team, president of French club, and a member of the National Honor Society.

Upon graduation from Holy Name, Mrs. Blanc attended Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Language in French in 1999. She was then named a teaching fellow at Boston College where she taught Elementary and Intermediate French classes to undergraduates and also earned her Master’s degree there in 2001.

Prior to returning to Holy Name as a French teacher and Foreign Language Department Chairperson, Mrs. Blanc worked as an English instructor to adolescents and adults in Lyon, France for two years.

“I am thrilled to accept the position of Principal of my alma mater and I look forward to working with the alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and students of Holy Name by leading the continued development of the oldest co-educational Catholic high school in the Diocese of Cleveland,” Mrs. Blanc expressed.

With this appointment Holy Name joins other diocesan high schools in adopting the successful model of separating the offices of principals and presidents. Current President/Principal Ben Farmer will continue as President of Holy Name.

“We are delighted that Shelbrey’s love for the Holy Name community is translating into a new role as principal. We welcome a new energy as this model of administration is initiated,” stated Ms. Margaret Lyons, Secretary for Catechetical Formation and Education and Superintendent of Schools.
Please join us in congratulating Shelbrey Blanc and welcoming her into her new role at Holy Name.

Thank you,
The Administration of Holy Name High School.
