Holy Names High School

Skip to main content

#NeverAgain

The Holy Names community stands united in support of every child's right to prepare for his/her future in an educational setting free of guns and violence.  Today's walkout, organized and enacted entirely by the HNHS student body, gave voice to a concern that is obviously shared by many young people in this country.  In fact, Holy Names was just one of thousands of schools across the country to take part in today's walkout.
 
Students walked out of class and convened on back campus to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives to senseless violence and to share their unyielding belief that change must come to our nation's gun culture.  The names of each victim from Stoneman Douglas High School were read aloud preceding a moment of silence for all of those affected by gun violence. 
 
Jackie Bither '19 gave an impassioned speech about the need for action.  Based upon her recent experience at Close Up in Washington DC, she shared the knowledge she gained about how to make a difference and outlined a plan for Holy Names students to do so. In a heartwarming tribute to Holy Names sisterhood, Monica Andrade '92 and Joyce Scotlan '83 joined the walkout and spoke of their support and admiration for the current group of young women taking charge at Holy Names.

"...we are the new generation that will change this country, and it is our duty to tell our government officials how the American people feel about issues in our society.  You may hear politicians criticizing us right now, saying that we are too young or naive or ignorant of the world’s problems, but in less than four years when we’re all voting age they will have no choice but to listen to us and those who didn’t listen to us now will regret never doing so."
