- Holy Cross Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Students
- Two Holy Cross School seniors have been named Semifinalists in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program, and four seniors have been named Commended Students.
- John Accardo, and Blake Baldassaro, have both been named National Merit Semifinalists. These academically talented high school seniors are among approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program, and they will now have the opportunity to compete for one of 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring. In addition, these two students have earned a full tuition scholarship for their senior year at Holy Cross School as part of the school’s National Merit Award program.
- Jared Brodtmann, Patrick Girardot, Brennan Suffern, and Mark Wilson, have been named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test
- “We are extremely proud of these students and their academic accomplishments. They have demonstrated that they are true Holy Cross men, both inside and outside the classroom, and we wish them continued success throughout their senior year and beyond,” said Dr. Joseph Murry, high school principal of Holy Cross School.
- Spirit Shop Announces Adjusted Hours for 9/29 and 10/2
- The Holy Cross Spirit Shop will closed at 1:00 pm on Friday, September 29, in order to set up to sell apparel at the Holy Cross vs. Jesuit Rivalry game. The Spirit Shop will also be closed for inventory on Monday October 2, 2017.
Senior Football Players Honor Faculty Members
- A few years ago a tradition was started where senior athletes are given the opportunity to recognize a faculty or staff member with the honor of wearing their game day jersey. The students are asked to pick someone who has helped make them the Holy Cross Men they have become. Today, senior football player Kym Wimberly dedicated his jersey Mrs. Jill Miester, Michael Ricks honored Mrs. Kelly Clark and Landen Bates recognized Ms. Julianne Watson. Congratulations to all of you! We are HC!
