Carrying the Torch: Celebrating Brother Martin Hernandez

Celebrating Brother Martin Hernandez, S.C.

He would be proud of what we've built together.

Brother Martin Hernandez, S.C. our namesake, passed away thirty-one years ago today, leaving behind a mission, a torch to be carried, that has been picked up by our Partners in Mission and remains alight to this day. These young men are our mission and purpose. Brother Martin would be proud of these kind, compassionate, and dedicated young men as we are.

This morning, our Principal, Mr. Ryan Gallagher '00, reflected on Brother Martin's legacy:

"It is important that we reflect upon and celebrate the many men and women - both religious and lay partners in mission - who have helped pave the way for each of us to be here at Brother Martin High School today. Three years ago, the sculpture of Brother Martin Hernandez was unveiled as our school community paid homage to this most important man. This sculpture, made possible by the incredible generosity of those whose hearts were touched by Brother Martin Hernandez in and around these very hallways and classrooms many years ago, stands as a testament to his lasting legacy. His sculpture stands in the back courtyard, overlooking his school. We walk this campus under the watchful eye of Brother Martin Hernandez every day."
