Jonah Zacks '21

Ram Earns Fellowship with Civics Unplugged

Jonah Zacks ’21 has been awarded a fellowship with a program called Civics Unplugged. This is a new national/virtual program that is bringing together members of GenZ and guiding them to become leaders of democracy in the future. They meet virtually several times a week working in teams to draft a 2030 plan.
This summer, they will all come together for three days to ratify their plan in person at Georgetown University (a trip that is fully funded by the program). Jonah is working in partnership with kids from schools all over the country.
Learn more about Civics Unplugged and when they’re accepting the next round of applications here: https://www.civicsunplugged.org/.

Dunking their Way to Victory

On Wednesday, the MICDS Boys Basketball Team defeated Lutheran North, 67-54. Read the full recap of their game on STL High School Sports and a briefer recap here. Highlights of the game included a two-handed dunk by Brandon Mitchell-Day ’22 followed by him scoring a game-high of 20 points, a 3-pointer by Jack Pronger ’21 to break the tie in the fourth quarter, a season-best score of 16 points by Hasani Spann ’21 and eight rebounds by both Pronger and Aaron Hendricks ’21. Our Rams beat Lutheran North on January 3 by a buzzer-beater (45-42). This time, their strong victory is propelling them to make a statement as conference contenders. Way to go, #RamNation!
