On Wednesday morning Blue Jay basketball players Zach Deblieux, Kyle Haupt, Nick Artigues, Kylan Steele, and Nick Brewster served breakfast to the homeless at the Living Witness Church in Central City. The breakfast program is run by Grace at the Greenlight, a nonprofit organization that serves a morning meal to between 70 and 100 homeless men and women every day. This group of Blue Jays were the first of many, as Jesuit is planning to bring students to serve breakfast on the first and third Wednesday of every month. Students interested in participating should see Mr. Murphy in Room 225 to sign up.

Welcoming new and old cadets back to Carrollton and Banks, MGySgt J.R. Piseno and LtCol Tim Huete ’76 cooked up two spicy potfuls of jambalaya for lunch. There was plenty of jambalaya to go around, and after the 141 hungry MCJROTC members had their fill, cadets like senior Marseyas Fernandez came back for seconds. Speaking of jambalaya, the Big Brother-Little Brother Lunch is Friday in the Student Commons. Big Brothers should meet their Little Brothers in the courtyard at the beginning of lunch and then proceed together into the Commons for a jambalaya lunch.

Don’t Have a Cow…
Student body president Dowen Fife dressed like a cow at the New Student Orientation Pep Rally. The pep rally was certainly wild, as new students and their big brothers participated in the “Roller-Coaster” cheer that brought everyone to their feet. The spirit in the auditorium showed new Blue Jays that there is more to Jesuit than just classes and homework. “Don’t have a cow.” In other words, there is no need to worry. You belong at Jesuit.
