Ralph Orsini named the 2024 Heart and Mind Award recipient

On Thursday, Jan. 18, Hoban's Principal T.K. Griffith announced Ralph Orsini as the 2024 Brother James Spooner Holy Cross Heart and Mind Award recipient. The announcement was made after an all-school Mass celebrating the feast day of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross.

Ralph will retire from Hoban at the end of the school year and has served as a Holy Cross educator since 1992. The award honors Hoban employees who live Moreau's vision of inspiring the heart and mind. As a teacher and coach, Ralph sets the example for young people acquiring the competence to see and the courage to act.

"A quiet, dignified man, this humble leader has modeled resilience, class and faith in all that he does in the classroom and beyond. Through his actions, words and interactions, he models the humility of the Brothers of Holy Cross and silently models integrity for all." — T.K. Griffith ’89
