A great big congratulations is in order for Jesuit Academy alum and recent Creighton Prep graduate Cedrick Henderson-Smith. Cedrick is the recipient of a Douglas County Sheriff's Scholarship, awarded through the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Midlands! Cedrick received the award at the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Midlands Scholarship Luncheon today.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Scholarship is awarded in remembrance of all fallen officers in the line of duty. Throughout the history of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, two deputies have died in the line of duty.
Cedrick will be attending Washburn University this fall and will study Criminal Justice.
Way to go Cedrick!!
As part of the summer session and the afternoon camp portion, Jesuit Academy 8th graders visited The Institute for the Culinary Arts at Metropolitan Community College on Wednesday and took part in a tour and a knife skills class, led by several instructors from the college. Students learned proper knife techniques using celery and tomatoes and finished the class making a tomato bruschetta, which they enjoyed on toasted bread.
We think there may be some future chefs at Jesuit Academy!
Thank you to Metro Community College for a great class!
