Four St. Bernard High School students who entered the Congressional Institute’s Nationwide High School Visual Arts Competition were honored at a districtwide recognition of student work from the 43rd District, held May 9 at the Lawndale Community Center.

The competition recognizes, promotes and encourages artistic talent in the nation and each congressional district. St. Bernard had four entrants in the showing: Jasmine Strachan, Jordan Williams, Chris Reyes and Marquis Cox.

Of her piece, “Red Sunset Over the Pacific,” Strachan said, "I saw it as the perfect opportunity to showcase the beautiful scenery we have by being near the beach. I thought it was the perfect image to submit, and for it to go as far as it did was very flattering and rewarding.”

Accompanying the students to the reception was Mark Griswold, director of Visual and Performing Arts, whose background includes a 1992 Emmy Award winner for his work with Sports America’s Cup.

Suicide: Reclaiming the memory of our loved one

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

Each year I write a column on suicide. Mostly I say the same thing over and over again, simply because it needs to be said. I don’t claim any originality or special insight, I only write about suicide because there is such a desperate need for anyone to address the question.
