St. Joe students recognized

MADISON – St. Joseph School senior Anna Kathryn Moorehead was selected by Spring Hill College in Mobile as the 2014 recipient of the Bishop Brunini Scholarship.
The scholarship is offered to one graduating senior from the Jackson Diocese and awarded on the basis of academic ability, leadership/involvement outside of the classroom and dedication to serving others in the recipient’s community.
Bishop Brunini lived his life as a leader in service to others. In 1981, a scholarship was established at Spring Hill College to both honor Bishop Brunini’s achievements as a leader and to foster the same qualities in the chosen recipient of this prestigious award.
In addition to the Bishop Brunini Scholarship, Moorehead also was awarded the Portier Leader Award in recognition of academic excellence and the Spring Hill Service Scholarship for her dedication to service to others.
Sophomore journalism student Jack Hall had his name engraved on a plaque on permanent display at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum announcing he was named the first Orley Hood Sports Writer of the Year.
The Orley Hood award is named in honor of the late Orley Hood, a longtime, popular, award-winning sports columnist with The Clarion-Ledger. Hall competed for the award against other students from all high schools across the state. Hall serves as sports editor of The Bear Facts.
