  • On Monday, March 11, the winners were announced for the 2013 Catholic Daughters Court Bishop Schenk #2010 education essay contest. Fifth graders in Judy Schoeneberger's class at Cathedral School participated by expressing their thoughts on this year's topic "Jesus Is Reflected in Me".
        Participants included: Ben Andringa, Cassidy Baatz, Emma Boerger, Kennedy Brandner, Kaydin Brule, Arianna Long, Kelsey Roed, Gaven Salem, Sophie Sanders, Lily Sandman, Alexis Wilkens and Petrina Westman.
        Judges Kay Miller, Liz Rust and Phyllis Sheridan chose Ben Andringa as the first place winner. His essay will be forwarded to the state level contest. Second place was a tie between Arianna Long and Lily Sandman. Third Place was also tied between Gavin Salen and Kelsey Road.
        The winning essay by, Ben Andringa, is as follows:
        "When I first started school at a new school, I was on the bus when the kids on the bus were making fun of a boy named Mark. People call him fat, stupid, moron, and a lot more. I was new in school so, I did not know what to do so I asked my mom and dad. They told me to stand up for Mark, so the next time when the kids on the bus tried to pick on Mark, I told them to stop and leave him alone. I did all the stuff in the last sentence, and Mark and I have been friends since.
        I did all those things, because Jesus asks us to care for others and love others. I know that by standing up for my new friend, I did reflect Jesus."
