In his remarks Councilman Justin Brannan, sponsor of the bill to name the corner of 60th street and Bay Parkway Bishop Kearney Way, stated that the school has had such a big impact on the community that it deserves to have a street named after it. Bishop Kearney High School has closed its doors but the school’s legacy will remain for generations to come. Kearney alums are found in thousands of high-powered public and private careers all across the tri-state area and beyond. “The entire Bishop Kearney alumni family, students, teachers and parents are honored with this street -naming so the school’s legacy, the memories and the friendships made on this corner will never been forgotten,” Brannan said. BKHS left its mark on the hearts of the community not only the girls but families and community. The sign will cement BKHS presence and influence. Sponsored and operated by the Sisters of St. Joseph for almost 60 years , the school provided young girls with an excellent education and taught the importance of living according to values of integrity and service.
