Crossgates Elementary to Honor Student Volunteer with Scarlet and Gray Celebration

Students from St. John's Jesuit High School (SJJ) visit Crossgates Preschool each week for a two-hour block to work in classrooms and other capacities. Their goal is to earn 100 hours of Christian Service, which is a graduation requirement. The partnership between TPS preschool and SJJ has existed for 12 years. Dallas Gant, a senior at St. John’s, has earned his Christian service hours over the past two years. The students are celebrating his last day as a volunteer and early high school graduation by wearing scarlet and gray since he will be attending The Ohio State University in January 2018. Footage of Gant interacting with students will be featured in a video that will be shown during the Army Bowl Game.

Gant will be honored on Wednesday, December 13 at 9:30 a.m. at Crossgates, 3901 Shadylawn.
