It has accidentally been a very long time since my last blog post. I offer my apologies, and some good news: I have a few new posts coming soon for the holiday season, and they will be a lot of fun!
And now back to your regularly scheduled blog post…
Have you ever heard about the Old Newsboys? They’re the people who sell newspapers during the holiday season around Northwest Ohio. Their mission is to ensure that no child misses school for lack of shoes or a coat. The Old Newsboys Association also gives donations to other charity organizations, delivers food baskets to needy families, distributes new clothes and shoes to needy children, and provides eight college scholarships to high school seniors each year.
I didn’t know much about the organization until recently, when two Central Catholic students were awarded scholarships.
Central Catholic senior Anthony Lockett was awarded a $5,000 academic scholarship by the Old Newsboys Association. The scholarship is awarded to students who demonstrate a goal to achieve.
It seems like a fantastic organization, and a great way to support the Toledo community this holiday season. We are proud of our Central Catholic students, and congratulate Anthony and DeShone on this achievement!
