We are extremely proud of those Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School students who have been chosen as winners in writing contests designed to celebrate the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. These contest winners will be honored at breakfasts to be held over the coming weekend: one on Saturday at Worcester State University and one on Monday at Quinsigamond Community College. Caleb Nortey, grade ten, and Isabel Muhia, grade twelve, will be honored at the Worcester State breakfast, and Kate King, grade seven, will be honored at both. We salute these students as well as their teacher, Mrs. Bisson, for their hard work and dedication in preparing and submitting their winning entries.
Worcester State University’s breakfast has a theme of youth against violence, and our students submitted poems describing how we can approach injustice to bring change. And, at Quinsigamond Community College, students were asked to submit essays describing how we can make our community a better place. As a Catholic institution, we are very much in tune with these ideals, and we are pleased and proud to be represented at these events by our wonderful students, teachers and administrators.
It is our hope and prayer that everyone in the Holy Name community not only finds time to relax and to spend time with family and friends this weekend but also spends time in prayerful reflection considering the meaning of Martin Luther King Jr.’s message and how we can improve as individuals and community members to make his dream a reality.
