Holy Cross High School will induct nine individuals and one athletic team into the Crusader Hall of Honor on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at La Bella Vista at 6:00p.m. The Crusader Hall of Honor was created to recognize the accomplishments and services of our Crusader community members. Our honorees consist of alumni, teachers, administrators and friends who have made a significant contribution to the Holy Cross community in the ways they have lived their lives and in how they represented the values taught at Holy Cross.

The Hall of Honor is made up of these distinguished awards:

  • The Crusader Award – this honors an alumnus/a who distinguished himself/herself in co-curricular activities including athletics, arts and humanities during his/her time at Holy Cross.
  • The Saint Andre Bessette Award – this honors an alumnus/a who distinguished himself/herself in the greater community in life after high school.
  • The Blessed Father Basil Moreau Award – this honors a coach, teacher, administrator or staff member who made significant contributions to the lives of the young people they encountered during their years at Holy Cross.
  • The Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys Award – this recognizes our loyal Holy Cross friends who made a significant impact on the school community through their commitment and dedication.
  • The Green and Gold Award, honoring teams that have brought respect and honor to Holy Cross High School because of their outstanding accomplishments while in high school
