Holy Cross School Senior Clarence Davis "CJ" Wins Prestigious Dr. Charles Mitchell Award Funded by NABSE

Holy Cross School is proud to announce that senior Clarence Davis, known as "CJ," has been awarded the esteemed Dr. Charles Mitchell Award, generously funded by the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE). Davis was selected based on an impressive essay, GPA, and overall accomplishments as a student thus far. He accepted this scholarship at a special ceremony put on by NABSE in early December.

Here on campus, CJ is a standout member of the Holy Cross School basketball team. Aside from athletics, he is a selected member of the ambassador team. His involvement as an ambassador for Holy Cross School reflects his desire to make a positive impact within the school and beyond.

In addition to his Holy Cross involvement, CJ is an altar server at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. He also generously volunteers his time with the Junior Zulu Club. Through his extracurricular activities, he actively contributes to community service initiatives, demonstrating his commitment to social responsibility and making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

CJ plans to use his scholarship award at Louisiana State University (LSU). His commitment to LSU reflects his determination to pursue higher education and continue making significant contributions to both his academic and local communities.

When asked about his thoughts on the scholarship he said "I am grateful for the scholarship and the opportunity it gives me for higher education. I am also appreciative of all that Holy Cross has done to help me get to this point in my education.”

Holy Cross School is immensely proud to have CJ represent the institution and receive this prestigious honor. We look forward to watching his continued success and wish him the best of luck at LSU in the fall.
