St. Joseph girls repeat soccer champions

Big ups to Saint Joseph Catholic School Lady Eagles soccer.
They’re repeat champions of the Florida Gulf Coast League with 23 schools from Palmetto to Port Charlotte.
St. Joe beat Sarasota School of Arts and Sciences in an OT shootout for the title. Coached by Laura Schafer and Jason Morrow, the champion Eagles are Lexi Boynes, Abby Cuva, Tiffany Daniels, Emma Fenton, Kei Foley, Hailey Heagerty, Emma Horne, Adriana Maldonado, Shelby Morrow, Sydney Morrow, Ferris Reed, Meredith Roberts, Jessi Schafer, Kaitlyn Schafer and Shaylee Yingling.

Manatee High sophomore Maggi Patterson received two Gold Presidential Service Awards from Manateens. She’s already volunteered more than 500 hours in community service with Red Cross, Manatee Art Center and Humane Society and is a counselor in training at the YMCA 59th Street branch.

Braden River High senior Timothy Parker II received a National Achievement Scholarship from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. He’s one of nearly 800 outstanding African-American high school seniors to win the award, which comes from a privately financed academic competition started in 1964 specifically to honor scholastically talented African-American youth.

These are good times for Carol Whitmore and husband Dr. Andre Renard.
The county commissioner was honored by the Tampa Bay Lightning as a "Lightning Community Hero" last Monday night.
Days before that, Renard was in Manhattan where his artwork was accepted at the International New York Artexpo.
