A transition in leadership will soon begin at Holy Name High School, a school owned and operated by the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland and located in Parma Heights. Terry Kenneally, a 1967 Holy Name graduate and longtime supporter of the school, has served as president for four years. He announced his retirement effective June 30, 2020 at the end of the school year.
“During my tenure as president, many improvements have been made at Holy Name and I am proud to have contributed to their creation,” Kenneally said in a message to the Holy Name High School community. Kenneally led the school in the planning and launch of the current strategic initiative: Loyal Hearts, Firmly United. Under his guidance, the community supported major capital improvements, including the opening of the new Cicerchi Field in 2017 and the Ray ’44 and Eleanor Smiley Family Chemistry Lab earlier this year.
“I feel that I have accomplished what I originally set out to do and it is now time to turn over leadership of the school to someone with a vision for the future,” Kenneally said.
“Terry’s leadership will forever be remembered for his deep love of and devotion to Holy Name High School. Holy Name is in a better place because of his service, and the school is poised to continue its trajectory for years to come,” said Dr. Frank O’Linn, superintendent of schools for the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland.
Kenneally also has been the owner/president of Terrence J. Kenneally & Associates law firm in Rocky River for 22 years.
A search committee will be formed to select the next president.
