4/24/2015 Spartans Play Tribute to True American Hero
The South Suburban Conference asks its baseball teams to support an important cause each season. This year the SSC chose Wounded Warriors. Therefore, the baseball program chose to honor United States Marine Corporal Conner T. Lowry, the nephew of English teacher Jennifer Jepsen. Conner made the ultimate sacrifice on March 1, 2012 in Afghanistan. Conner was a graduate of Brother Rice High School, so head baseball coach Bill Gerny found the games against Brother Rice to be a natural fit to honor Conner because it would be meaningful to both teams.
4/24/2015 Senior Visits Pivotal Historical Sites with Bridging Communities
Over spring break, senior Issar Hindi travelled with the Council on American-Islamic Relations Chicago (CAIR) on a multi-day educational tour of Arkansas to witness historical sites pivotal to our cultural history. Students visited the Rohwer War Relocation Center, a World War II internment camp for Japanese-Americans; the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, a museum dedicated to preserving black history; and Little Rock Central High School, the school where President Eisenhower sent in federal troops to escort the “Little Rock Nine” into the building in 1957. CAIR and the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) founded the youth program Bridging Communities. The program strives to educate Muslim and Japanese American youth about the history and circumstances surrounding the internment of Japanese American citizens during World War II.
