St. Thomas of Canterbury student Arsema Tesfai is pictured above with Sharon Robinson (daughter of baseball legend Jackie Robinson) and Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson. Arsema won one first place in a national essay contest called Breaking Barriers. She was given a laptop for herself and her teacher, T-shirts and books for the class, and 70 Cubs tickets.

Great job, Arsema! Thanks for making our school proud!
