Name: Leigh Anne Odinet
City: New Orleans, LA
Comments: Holy Cross High School has educated young men from all economic levels. It never catered to any special segment of society, but opened its arms to all young men. It was a a friend to the neighborhood at its old site, at will will be a great asset this Gentilly neighborhood. It will help property values, re-population of the area, and will educate future leaders of New Orleans. The former Cabrini Church may be unique, but it was a financial/maintenance burden to its parishoners. The architect failed to create the "whole package" of a sustainable, sound, viable building from the beginning. Time to let go of it and put some more life back into Gentilly.
