Cameron Caldwell considered it a great honor to be picked as the student to address about 600 people at the Archbishop's Gala benefiting the Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation in late April.
The senior at Cardinal Ritter College Preparatory High School planned to tell the crowd how much students accomplish thanks to their generous support, which makes all of the difference to students such as himself. He was primed and ready for the festivities that evening in the Khorassan Ballroom at the Chase Park Plaza.
"They had this big old garage," DeWitt recalled. "A lot of times nobody would be there, so my girlfriends and I would set up our doll stuff inside. Father Schoen was the pastor when I was here. If he'd come home when we had all our stuff set up out there, he'd just go park on the street."

Jerrod Booth quietly approached the United States Postal Service table at the employment fair, tightly clutching a well-worn orange folder stuffed with papers. He struggled to hold his head up and make eye contact, clearly uncomfortable at the moment.
Allison Whittaker looked up from the table, smiled and greeted him. She then stood up and shook his hand.
A human resources specialist, Whittaker immediately let Booth know that the Postal Service is hiring, and Booth took a deep breath, settling his nerves down.

At Notre Dame High School last week, the normal chatter of teenage girls was replaced with a lot of smiling and giggling between students and their visitors from Japan.
Twelve junior- and senior-high students from Notre Dame School in Kyoto were visiting as part of an annual cultural exchange between the sister schools. The Kyoto school was founded by American School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1952 to help rebuild the community after World War II.
