It’s official, just after 11am on Friday, September 24, 2010 McCoy High School was renamed “Monsignor McCoy High School”.

The Knights of Columbus made the suggestion to the Medicine Hat Catholic Board of Education last year, after concerns were raised that the name did not reflect anything that had to do with the Catholic Church. Adding “Monsignor” to the name of the school will also pay tribute to the late Monsignor E.J. McCoy who passed away in 1971.

MHCBE Board Member Peter Grad said that the new name will identify McCoy as a Catholic school, and newcomers to the city may notice that it is a Catholic School.

McCoy was a priest at St. Patrick’s Church, and lived in Medicine Hat until his passing.
