When asked to reflect on his days at Holy Spirit, Mr. Kresz shared these thoughts...

"During my time at Holy Spirit, I was fortunate to be taught by some outstanding faculty, fostering a desire to pass the knowledge and life skills taught to me to the next generation. The faculty at Holy Spirit inspired me to become a teacher. Just as the faculty at Holy Spirit did for me, I try to instill in my own students the importance of a well-rounded education that extends far away from the classroom. Two of the accomplishments I am most proud of during my years at Holy Spirit included being the recipient of the Vincent Brennan and Monsignor John J. Henry awards. These awards I cherish and hold close to my heart.

Athletics also played an important role for me while at Holy Spirit. Having participated in football, cross country and a state championship in swimming, I had the privilege of being a four year member of the men’s rowing team under Coach Welsh and Coach Stan Bergman. I went on to continue my rowing career at Saint Joseph’s University where I served as team captain during my junior year. After college, I came back to Holy Spirit to coach the boy’s novice program for one year."
