St. Thomas Aquinas Holmes Award:
Each year since 1993, the Athletic Committee has be honored to present the Mike and Linda Holmes Mental Attitude Award to an 8th grade girl and boy who participate in the CYO program at St. Thomas. This is a parish-wide award because CYO is a part of both the church and school.
Mike and Linda Holmes were members of our parish. Mike was a principal and Linda was a social worker. After their tragic death, this award has been given in their memory.
The Mike and Linda Holmes Mental Attitude Award is given to student athletes based on leadership, sportsmanship and respectfulness both on and off the court or field. This is not an MVP award based on athletics, but on attitude.
The student should be involved in CYO sports programs in a meaningful way by participating on several teams.
