On a personal note, I want to thank Holy Name for the love, support, and education I received during my time there. I love being a part of the Holy Name family; they provided such a great learning environment that really helped my personal and spiritual growth. Being at Holy Name during some of those early formative years, really impacted my take on service to others, community involvement, and sharing my faith with others. I’m truly proud to be an alumni of Holy Name School!
