Dedication of the Academic Hall of Honor

In recognition of their unyielding faith and service, Hoban dedicated the second-floor hallway in honor of Brothers Joe LeBon and Ed Libbers. Together, they have served Hoban for nearly 90 years, making them the longest-serving Brothers in Hoban history. We also celebrated Brother James Spooner in his final year at Hoban.

The hallway, which was previously the Brothers residence at Hoban, honors the history and legacy of the Congregation of Holy Cross and also recognizes members of the Academic Hall of Honor

A blessing and dedication was held on Saturday, March 19, beginning with Mass and a reception to follow. Over 200 guests were in attendance.  Hoban is accepting donations towards the Holy Cross Legends Scholarship, in honor of Brother Ed, Brother Joe, Brother James Spooner, and all the Holy Cross Brothers. 

I had the good fortune to be one of the first female students at Hoban as a junior in the fall of 1973.

Both of these dedicated men have touched many lives, helped shape the future and continue to make a difference for all of us.

Thanks, Brothers Joe and Ed. Your technical expertise enabled me to get to work on cutting-edge technology and your humor and energy reminded me to find humor in life every day by breaking up monotony. I wish you were still there to teach my children. I can only imagine how many minds you've guided on their path and what projects you helped create.
