On Thursday, October 5, Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, National Grid and Vionx Energy, will host the ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the commission of the eight power storage units that have been installed on our campus. We are pleased and proud to welcome those who have worked to make this project a reality as well as invited guests and community leaders. This project reestablishes Holy Name High School as the leader in environmental technologies in Central Massachusetts and will provide Holy Name students with an extraordinary, authentic STEM experience that no other high school can match.
This power storage installation is the only one of its kind on the east coast, and I am certain that it will bring a great deal of attention to our wonderful Catholic school. We are hopeful that our research will prove these storage units to be efficient and that the development of superior power storage units will increase the proliferation of clean, renewable energy sources across our country. At Holy Name, we have always considered ourselves to be outstanding stewards of the environment, and we see this stewardship as a manifestation of our devotion to God’s creation.
Although this commissioning ceremony is the result of a significant amount of hard work, dedicated effort and focused research and development, we see ourselves at the outset of an exciting journey rather than at the end. And we are enthusiastic to be able to include our most valued community members, our students, in this exciting journey.
