The Foundation is proud to announce Mr. Jace Henderson as our recipient of the Alumni Futures Scholarship! Jace was celebrated with a presentation and reception on May 20th at Mass at St. Agnes Catholic Church. His family along with members of the scholarship selection committee and members of the St. Agnes Catholic School Foundation Board were present to celebrate with him.
Jace provided the selection committee with an application that displayed a wide variety of involvement, as well as a commitment to his church and faith. Jace recently graduated form Scottsbluff High School with a 3.96 GPA. During his time in high school he was involved in Speech, which he lettered in 3 times, FFA where he received several honors and awards, he was in the school musicals all four years including playing the Rabbi in Fiddler at SHS this year. Jace was in NHS, Math Club, DECA, and has been involved in WNCC's Theatre Productions.

He is a member of 4-H and served as treasurer for that organization. jace was also given the opportunity to serve his community through 4-H by participating in multiple events such as the Fair and Buyers Meal, to name a few. jace has competed in mnay areas of the fair from Livestock to electrical projects and sewing. In his selflessness, Jace provided blankets that he made to the Linus Project, he worked at the IFrst Presbyterian soup kitchen, and he even worked for the SHS Bond Issue for the improvement of his school, knowing he wouldn't get to fully enjoy the benefits of the renovation for himself. That is a true commitment to long term community improvement.

Jace has challenged himself in high school to be involved, take rigorous classes, including college credit courses, and to be a positive, contributing member of society all to prepare himself for college and beyond, where we expect him to continue his strong work ethic and doing good for his community.
