Mike Holleran was our head engineer for 28 years. He worked for decades making Horace Mann School the best it could be. He guided and supported three renovations and two additions. He had a great sense of humor. He could fix anything and often helped others outside his work day. He had a soft heart for the kids who got in trouble helping them do community service to fix their mistakes. Mike went to after-school events and activities, even though his work day was long done. He managed his crew and kept the building and cafeteria clean. In the 14 years we worked together, I only remember him being gone for summer vacations and his father's funeral. In the end, Mike caught COVID in October 2020 and wasn’t able to fight off the illness in the days before vaccines and treatments. He passed away on November 7, 2020. His wife and family want his story shared to encourage everyone to get vaccinated and boosted.

Horace Mann School received permission to rename the Horace Mann School cafeteria as Mike Holleran Hall. In addition, his family created a lunch fund for students in need at Horace Mann School.

 We couldn't think of a better way to honor the legacy of a man who personified service, dedication, and hard work than renaming a space he cleaned every day and in which he interacted with students and staff, and to provide lunches for the children about whom he cared so much.

 – Principal Litwin (Horace Mann Elementary)
