Johnson to speak at Cathedral Christian

Published 11:35 pm Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Selma native and NFL player Michael Johnson will speak at the St. James Hotel Thursday night at a dinner that benefits Cathedral Christian Academy.

Cathedral headmaster Craig Stull said the dinner is a chance to share with the community what the school is about, while also raising funds toward a new computer lab.

“We want to cast a vision about what our school is all about. We want to raise leaders from here that not only excel in life, with their academic background, but also have excellent moral character based on Christian and Biblical values,” Stull said.

The dinner will start at 6:30 p.m. and will feature Johnson, who will be in Selma to host his annual football and cheer camp on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. Tickets for Thursday’s dinner are $25 apiece and will be used to add a computer lab at Cathedral Christian.

“We’re in such need here. One of the things we absolutely need is a computer lab. We have no computers here at the school and in the electronic age we’re in, we would really love to have one of those,” Stull said. “That’s one of our goals.”

Cathedral Christian is located at 1204 Highland Avenue and currently has an enrollment of 74 students.

Johnson will hold a career expo Friday at Wallace Community College Selma from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The NFL player will hold his annual football and cheer camp Saturday. Registration is ongoing at www.mj93.org.
