Nathan Cummings, a MIHS sophomore, has been awarded a National Gold Medal by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers (the largest scholastic competition in the country of its kind). His work was selected for a reading by an off-Broadway theater company. It was one of only 22 chosen.
Joshua Cizek, a fifth-grader at St. Monica School, is the winner of the 10th annual Margo Brahm Foundation Scholarship, given by the Brahm family.
Margo Brahm taught at St. Monica Parish School for over 15 years. Beloved by her students, their parents and fellow teachers, Brahm taught kindergarten, fourth and fifth grade. Teaching brought her joy, and she loved the children of St. Monica.
Brahm died in 1999. In 2002, the family established the Margo Brahm Foundation Scholarship, awarding a fifth-grade student at St. Monica Parish School $1,000 toward their next year’s tuition.
The Brahm family reads each essay and selects a winner. The family would like to say that the essays were outstanding, and picking a winner was difficult.
