Cardinal Newman Students Receive Young and Gifted Awards

Cardinal Newman is proud to have nine of our students receive prestigious Young and Gifted awards presented by the Columbia Urban League. This is the 36th annual event honoring students around the midlands for excellence in the areas of academics, the arts, leadership, technology, and athletics. The recipients were celebrated during a virtual ceremony in February in coordination with Black History Month.

Brian Jamison and Damon Tucker were presented the Young and Gifted award for excellence in academics while Gerald Gary, Simone Joseph, Cedric Shelby, Josie Thompson, Ashlyn Watkins, Justin Williams and Kobe Wright were presented the Young and Gifted Award for excellence.

The Cardinal Newman community is proud of our recipients and all of the impressive young adults that were recognized for their hard work and accomplishments throughout the Midlands. We are also thankful for the Columbia Urban League’s efforts to recognize and celebrate our future leaders!
