READ WHAT OUR YOUNG  Alumni from the Class of 2012 feel their Catholic education at Holy Spirit gave them, and a peek at what they are doing today.

Zach Fabel '12
"Holy Spirit gave me the opportunity and tools I needed to attend college on an academic and athletic scholarship. I was able to learn and grow as an individual with some of the best teachers, coaches, teammates and friends anyone could ask for. Being a Spartan academically and athletically prepared me to tackle challenges without fear or hesitation. Winning back-to-back state football championships with my fellow Spartans gave me the drive and motivation to always push for more. I am grateful for my time at Holy Spirit and cherish the friendships and memories I have made there."

Nichole Remy '12
"Holy Spirit gave me the educational foundation I needed in order to be successful in college. The AP courses and science electives I took better prepared me for the course load I had in undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of New Haven (UNH). I graduated from UNH with two Bachelor's degrees, Forensic Science and Biology, and I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Forensic Technology, which is the only program of it's kind in the country. The core values: honor, loyalty, courage, and honesty, which I developed at Holy Spirit have taught me to strive for perfection, to pursue my dreams, and to stand up for what I believe in. If I did not attend Holy Spirit High School, I am not sure where I would be today."

Abbey Werner '12
"Holy Spirit gave me the encouragement, faith and values to believe in myself, and go after my dreams. My teachers were not only there to help me, they understood and supported my individual academic interests and passions. My love for history, music and drama were solidified at Holy Spirit. While a History major at the Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington DC, I earned an internship in the Office of the Historian of the US House of Representatives. Conducting research in the Library of Congress, working closely with professional historians, and handling treasured National Archives took confidence. Confidence I gained at Holy Spirit. Now a CUA graduate student pursuing a Masters degree in Theater History and Criticism, I am working with students and professionals on historical theater productions. Holy Spirit instilled in me faith in myself and God, and gave me the confidence to pursue my dream."
