From the Desk of Mr. Eugene T. Krakowiak

Can you fall in love with your high school? Of course you can. However, there
is one major pre-condition to form this special relationship. The student must be
willing to step down to a secondary role; the student must be willing to put school
before self. Let’s pause for a moment and direct our focus on our school motto,
“The School’s the Thing”. It can be found on the back cover of this year’s student
handbook. In essence the motto says to us Holy Name students should always
further the honor and glory of our school; whatever we do has to be our very best
effort. It sets the example, the tone for others to follow.

While attending and greeting the parents at last week’s Meet the Faculty Night, I had the pleasure to meet
many parents who have sons or daughters in the present freshman and sophomore classes here at school.
Out of curiosity I asked them this question: How does your son or daughter like school? They answered
repeatedly, “They love it!” The word “love” should not be bantered around carelessly. It implies a serious
commitment. To answer the original question, I believe you can fall in love with your high school.

The school motto, “The School’s the Thing,” first appeared in the 1926 edition of the Holy Name
yearbook. My best research has discovered that credit for drafting the motto and setting the tone for
many years since is attributed to the Rev. “Doc” Scullen, who was at that time the pastor of Holy Name
Parish and President of Holy Name High School. It tells us that each of us is a part of something bigger
than ourselves. We are more than bricks and mortar. Our
school is a way of life. It is Christ centered, family oriented,
and caring, a place where students can grow in a Catholic,

     Beneft Auction 2008
                   SET FOR NOVEMBER 15, 2008
     Beautiful Wagner’s Country Inn in Westlake, Ohio will be the site of Holy Name High School’s Annual Benefit Auction.
The much anticipated event will be on Saturday, November 15, 2008 from 6:00 P.M. until 11:00 P.M. The festivities will
be in both the Grand Ballroom and the adjoining South Ballroom of the facility.
     The evening will begin with cocktails and appetizers, followed by a plated sit-down dinner, delicious desserts, open elite
bar service for the entire evening, and both the live and silent auctions. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase tickets
on the ever popular Chinese Auction Baskets, the Wagon of Cheer, and on a special “Cleveland Weekend Package” worth
hundreds of dollars. Background dinner music will be provided by members of the Holy Name orchestra. Tickets for the
Auction will be $75.00 per person.
     We are appealing to our alumni, friends, parents, students and faculty to again support us by donating items for the
silent and live auctions and to consider attending the event. Those interested in donating a gift, please complete the
“Auction Submission Form” on page 6 of this issue of THE WAVE, and send it, along with your donation, to Holy Name
High School. If you have any questions regarding the auction, please call Bill Hartman in the Development Office at
440-886-0300, ext. 148. A list of gifts already donated is listed on page 5. We are fortunate to have had a beautiful new
grandfather clock valued at $4700 donated to the live auction by Norm ’77 & Sheila Coughlin ’79 Basch, owners of Basch’s
Moment in Time Store located on Lorain Road in North Olmsted.
     The Benefit Auction is the school’s largest fund-raiser of the year. It is a combination of all organizations, clubs, parents,
faculty, staff, students and friends, working together for one cause: Holy Name High School. What better way to support
the school than to donate an item and then have a great time at the auction with other members of the Holy Name family.
If you are interested in working on one of the many committees that plan this auction, please give Bill Hartman a call.
Please join us.

                                         GREEN WAVE RAFFLE
                                            WIN $10,000
    A special raffle, held in conjunction with Holy Name’s Annual Benefit Auction “Rock Around the Clock”, gives you the
opportunity to win an amazing $10,000 Grand Prize. Tickets are $100 each and only 200 tickets will be sold. You do not
have to be present at the auction to win this fabulous prize. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Development Office
at 440-886-0300, ext. 148, or by calling one of the auction committee members.
    Does $100 a ticket sound too expensive? Many who have already purchased tickets have done so as a “group” or
“family” ticket, three or four people purchasing one ticket and splitting the prize if they win. What a great idea and we hope
many will follow this way of supporting Holy Name High School.
    Proceeds from this raffle and from the Benefit Auction on November 15 allow us to keep tuition as low as possible and
enables us to offer more financial aid to our students. Please keep in mind that our students are the primary beneficiaries of
your generosity. With you support we can make it happen!

                       13th Annual Eugene T. Krakowi
    A torrential downpour gave way to beautiful sunshine as the 152 golfers began to
arrive for the 13th Annual Eugene T. Krakowiak Golf Classic on July 9, 2008 at Mallard
Creek Golf Course.
    Alumni from the Classes of 1950 through 2008 joined with numerous faculty,
parents, and friends in raising $6100 for the Krakowiak Scholarship and other school
    After a delicious continental breakfast, golfers teed off for the shotgun scramble
promptly at 8:30 a.m. Golfers also enjoyed a delicious lunch, fabulous steak dinner,
and soft drinks, water and beer throughout the day. Each golfer was presented with
a specially monogrammed Holy Name stainless steel thermos with two travel mugs.
Door prizes, sideboards, hole prizes and being able to purchase tickets on eight main raffle prizes added to the excitement
of the day. In addition, prizes were given to the top four foursomes, and a skins game and two betting holes helped raise
additional funds for the school.
    A very special GREEN WAVE thanks to our Major Golf Sponsors. Great Lakes Storage (Pat ’71 and Kevin ’83 Gorbett)
and Gene Ptacek & Son Fire Equipment (Gene Ptacek ’81) were Lunch sponsors of the event, and the Breakfast Sponsor was
3PJ & Fairway Jack – Class of 1970 (Greg Walters ’70, Jeff Walters ’77, Rev. Neil Walters ’77).
    Each year two senior students who have met the criteria of the Krakowiak Scholarship are each awarded a $500
tuition grant. The recipients for the 2008-2009 school year are John Coughlin ’09 and Andrea Klonowski ’09. Our
congratulations to them.

Holy Name Class of 2000 Boasts Three New Doctors
    On June 7, three members of the class of 2000 graduated
from The Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr.
Melanie Kozlowski Bortel and Dr. Nick James are interns at Akron
City Hospital while Dr. Lisa Mementowski is an intern at Fairview
Hospital. Melanie and Lisa plan to practice Family Medicine
when they complete their residencies. Nick is concentrating on
Internal Medicine.
    Through their undergraduate studies and four years of
medical school, the friendships they established, values that were
reinforced, and lessons they learned while at Holy Name served
them well. Melanie and Lisa were roommates all four years at
Miami and again all through their years at OUCOM. Nick attended John Carroll University for his undergrad and then
joined Melanie and Lisa to pursue training. The bonds they forged as Namers continue on to this day.
    They would all like to thank the dedicated teachers and staff at Holy Name for encouraging them to pursue their goals
and preparing them well to achieve them. Congratulations to Lisa, Melanie, and Nick!

Alumni Gather For Luncheon
    A group of Alumni meet regularly for lunch, and recently met
at the Public House to celebrate the “birth” (1945) of the Cleveland
Browns. The “guest speaker” at this luncheon was Owen J. McCafferty
’43, a practicing attorney for the last 61 years. Owen enlightened the
group with biographies of Mickey McBride, who was owner of the
Browns, and former coach Paul Brown, who today is being recognized
as one of the greatest coaches in pro football.
    At the close of the luncheon, McCafferty made a gift presentation
to the Alumni Archives of a prized photograph of President John
F. Kennedy with Holy Name Alumni Bill Chambers ’50 and Owen
McCafferty ’43. They had both chauffered the President through the
streets of Cleveland in 1959 before he was elected President.
    Alumni attending the event included Len Kestner ’49, Mary Lou Basel Hopkins ’49, Agnes Goebel Burke ’49, Bill Ginley,
’49, and Emmett Donelon ‘49.
    The group would like to thank the owners of the Public House and descendents of Holy Name Alumni: Kevin Kelly,
Therese Chambers Arth, and Mike Graven for their hospitality and rendition of “Your Breaking My Heart Because You’re
Leaving” and a “world famous” song – “All Hail Holy Name “, as we all know was written by Jack Hearns.

    Holy Name’s Technology Campaign continues to “Take Giant Steps into the Future” as we proceed with the installation
of interactive whiteboards in each of the classrooms. Creating a wireless campus has already been completed. By doing this,
we have advanced the school to a new level, preparing our students for their futures with the best technological offerings
    We still have a way to go. Our goal of $150,000 can be obtained through the support and generosity of the Holy Name
High School community. Please consider making a contribution to our Technology Campaign. It will be a gift that will
make a tangible difference in the academic experience of our current and future students, the primary beneficiaries of your
    On a larger scale of giving, five classrooms have been sponsored for $6000 each. These generous sponsors will have a
plaque prominently displayed at the entrance of their sponsored classroom, a beautiful and permanent recognition of their
generosity. Many classrooms are waiting to have a sponsor. If interested, please contact Bill Hartman at 440-886-0300 ext.
148 for more information.
    As always, we are grateful for the contributions we have received through the Technology Appeal, but we would
be remiss in not thanking our own students, who through their own athletic team or club mini-fundraising activities,
designated a portion of their proceeds in the amount of $3000 toward our goal.
    Our goal is in sight! Please help us to reach it. All Hail Holy Name!

Chapel Chairs:
    As we have mentioned in previous issues of the THE WAVE, 75 new chairs were bought last year as part of the
recent chapel renovations initiated by Fr. Krizner. We are continuing our appeal to you to purchase one of these
chairs. To date, 48 chairs have been purchased and plaques will soon be affixed to the back of these chairs honoring
or memorializing the supporters or their families. Please consider making a lasting donation of $225, which in-
cludes the cost of the chair and other chapel renovations. If you are unable to purchase a chair, but would still like
to make a donation to the chapel renovation fund, please send your donation to Holy Name High School to the
attention of the Development Office.

Support Holy Name
    People are always asking us how they can help Holy Name, and how they can get involved. There are numerous ways
to support Holy Name High School. From making a cash contribution to naming the school in your will, your generosity
helps to keep Holy Name as affordable as possible and serves to ensure its long-term future.
    Besides outright or planned gifts, other opportunities to support the school include the following:

        * Purchasing a calendar from a student during the month of September or call the school during the month of
          October to order one. In addition to acquiring an attractive and informational item, your calendar purchase
          entitles you to a chance, every weekday from October through June, to win a cash prize.

        * Shop at GFS Marketplace and mention Holy Name High School. A percentage of your purchase will be included
          in a rebate check sent to the school at the end of the year.

        * Donate items for the Benefit Auction on November 15, 2008. This is the school’s largest fundraiser event each
          year. Plan to attend as well. Call the Development Office at 440-886-0300 ext. 148 for more information on the

    In addition to acquiring an attractive and informational item, the purchase of
each calendar entitles you to a chance, every weekday from October through June,
to win a cash prize of $500 on Wednesdays and a $100 prize the other days of the
week. The daily winning ticket is returned to the drawing barrel. You may even
win more than once. Many people have!

one of these calendars and follow the activities of the school throughout the year.
Revenues realized from this student fund-raising effort will help to keep the cost of education at Holy Name within the reach
of the families and students we serve.

Congratulations Class of 2008
    To the strains of “Pomp and Circumstances”, 196 seniors marched into
St. Columbkille Church on May 23 to receive their diplomas and become the
91st graduating class of Holy Name High School.
    The day before, in a moving ceremony in the Cunningham Gymnasium,
the Class of 2008 joined with their parents, the student body, and the faculty
in the annual Senior Tribute to Mary and Baccalaureate Mass. The graduates’
academic achievements, leadership, citizenship, and service to the school
were recognized at a special Senior Awards Assembly on May 15th.
    The Class of 2008 proudly boasts of 77 members who together were
offered over $5,500,000 in academic and athletic scholarships. Students
earning scholarships are listed in this issue of The WAVE.
    Adding to the list of academic accomplishments is the fact that 19 seniors were members of the National Honor
Society. Medals for perfect attendance during the four years of high school were awarded to four graduates. Awards
for First Honors (3.6 or higher) during all four years were bestowed upon 37 graduates, and 66 graduating seniors were
recognized for achieving Second Honors. Megan Krakowiak earned the Phi Beta Kappa Award. The Class of ’08 also
has two National Merit Commended Scholars in Megan Krakowiak and Alexander Yates.
    Our congratulations to the members of the Class of 2008. We wish you a life of peace, love and happiness. May you
always treasure your four years at Holy Name and may your wonderful memories of Holy Name remain with you always.

Scholarships Awarded
    In August, seven additional scholarships were awarded to seven Holy Name students.
    Due to the success of the Alumni Golf Outing and the Alumni Basketball Tournament this past year,
the alumni association was able to award six Alumni Family Scholarships, instead of the customary two
scholarships. The Alumni Family Scholarships were awarded to Ryan Richardson ‘10, Allison Trouten
‘12, Tom McCarthy ‘09, Michael Mayer ‘12, Katie Cerney ‘10, and Gabriela Halligan-Taylor ‘10. Our
congratulations to these six students.
    In addition, the first ever Class of 1957 Scholarship was awarded to Jane Whitten ‘12. The scholarship
was started this past year through the generosity of members of the Class of 1957 under the direction of
Joseph Swyt ’57. Three members of the Class of ’57, Ray Amato, Clare Tomko Hall, and Lucille Prestigomo
Carter, were members of the selection committee. Our thanks to them, and to all their classmates, for
their support in making this scholarship possible.

“Dare You To Move” Inspires NHS Induction
        by Jackie Mitchell
    Thirty-five HN students were inducted into the National Honor Society on Wednesday, April 23. With “Dare You To
Move” as the theme, the ceremony took place in the Cunningham Gymnasium.
    Guest speaker for the ceremony was Ms. Deanna O’Donnell, a 1983 Holy Name graduate, now a judge in the Parma
Municipal Court. In 2007, she became the first woman to be named Chief Assistant Law Director for the city of Parma.
    Current senior NHS members proceeded with lighting the flame of knowledge and explaining the four cornerstones of
NHS: Scholarship, Character, Service and Leadership. Certificates were distributed to the senior members, and membership
cards to the inductees. The ceremony closed with the National Honor Society pledge and the singing of the Alma Mater.
Inductees were Alysa Arcangelini, Anna Baaklini, Valerie Cintula, Christopher Cmolik, John Coughlin, Patrick Coyne,
Allison D’Anniballe, Ellen Day, Anthony DiMarino, Gracie Ehrbar, Jennifer Emery, Julianne Felty, Kelly Hartnett,
Lindsay Hartwig, Alex Hradek, Maribeth Keppler, Andrea Klonowski, Sarah Krakowiak, Lisa Lanzo, Angela Latina, Alyssa

“Community Life” Promotes Unity
        by Maren Mihovk
     “Community Life” came to HN once again during April, and, once again, faculty and students agreed that it helped
bring unity and awareness of the needs of others.
     One of the activities for the week included a mix-it-up day at lunch, designed to get students to sit with different people
at a different table. The next day featured a cornhole competition during lunch and after school. Thursday included an all-
school Mass, and on Friday students enjoyed guest speakers with messages on various issues.
     Overall, “Community Life” benefited Holy Name by making us more aware of our roles as members of a community.

    Senior Joe Jenks, a member of Assumption Troop 810 has achieved the highest rank of Eagle Scout from the Boy Scouts
of America. Our congratulations to Joe on this great honor.

    Holy Name students participated in the Sisters of Notre Dame Summer Enrichment Program this past year. Moderators
for the HN students were Kevin Ontko ’91 and Sr. Paula. The service sites that the students worked at included Malachi
House, Malachi Center, North Coast Painting, Westside Catholic Center and the Cosgrove Center. The students did
a variety of jobs including painting and scraping houses, serving meals, working with poor children, cleaning, visiting
terminally ill patients, and feeding the homeless. Students that were a part of this program included: Allison D’Anniballe,
Maribeth Keppler, Sean McCafferty, Kevin McCall, Tom McCarthy, Becca Libassi, Sara Skoczen, and Samantha Wisniewski.
The HN community is proud of all of you.

     The class of 2008 left their legacy to Holy Name by donating a flag pole and a custom made Holy Name Flag that stands
in front of the Cunningham gymnasium. The flag, which displays our athletic emblem, reads “Home of the Green Wave” and
proudly welcomes all students, athletes, parents, and visitors to Holy Name. Thank you class of 2008 for your outstanding gift!
