COMMEMORATIVE EDITION CELEBRATING CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS HIGH SCHOOL 60TH ANNIVERSARY
 

Christopher Columbus High School has always fostered three distinct traditions: the pursuit of academic excellence, the heritage of Catholic education, and the unique spirit and mission of the Marist Brothers.

Columbus opened in 1958 with just two and a half buildings and an enrollment of approximately 150 students. The Marist Brothers assumed the direction of the school in 1959, under the leadership of Principal Br. Benedict.

Throughout the years the school expanded, adding new buildings, facilities and programs. Known for excellence in every field, and with an enrollment of 1,700 students and over 14,750 alumni, today Christopher Columbus High School is a model for Catholic schools all over the country.

Community Newspapers is committed to creating a publication that honors Christopher Columbus High School and serves as a lasting keepsake for its students, faculty, future students, alumni, community partners worldwide.

SMILE INSTITUTE MIAMI TAKES A BITE OUT OF FEARING VISITS TO THE DENTIST
 
 It is estimated that between 5 percent and 8 percent of Americans avoid visiting a dentist out of fear, and 20 percent experience enough anxiety about it that they will only visit when absolutely necessary. What is it that makes the experience so terrifying? Many believe that the “root” cause comes from an early experience in the dentist’s chair. Perhaps it is the drills, the uncomfortable position, the poking, the prodding, or the fear of pain? Many patients dread their dental appointments, but what if it didn’t have to be this way? Smile Institute Miami is a ray of hope for those who dread their annual checkups, and is comprised of a dental team that specializes in gentle, personalized oral care.

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN PINECREST – JIANAN ZHANG
 

Coral Reef High School senior Jianan Zhang has earned more than 1,000 community service hours in her first three years in high school. Even though she’s maxed out on her hours, she has no plans to stop. “Something I’ve been doing is the clean-ups I organize all around South Florida,” she says. “It’s for a non-profit called We Are Nature. It’s based in Miami.” She began volunteering for We Are Nature in December 2016. Since then, she’s organized more than 30 clean-ups and conducted a couple of voter registration drives at clean-ups. “We do them at a lot of different locations,” she says. “We do them at Deering Estate and Matheson Hammock as well as a park in Pinecrest. “We go to the mangroves, because that’s where you find... Read More »

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN PINECREST – ZACHARY FRIEDLAND
 

Palmer Trinity senior Zachary Friedland is one of four co-chairs of the Miracle Games, a charity three-on-three basketball tournament. The Miracle Games was originally started to raise money for the transplant program at Jackson Memorial Hospital. But the founders moved on to college and Friedland and his friends took over. Last year, the money raised by the Miracle Games was donated to Achieve Miami. Friedland says he’s not sure which charity will benefit from the next tournament.“We haven’t taken a vote yet. It wouldn’t be for a while because it happens toward the school year,” he says. The four friends attend different schools. Friedland is a Palmer, one is at Coral Reef and two go to Palmetto High. While previously, Friedland didn’t play... Read More »
