“I wanted to have the potential to change the world, so I got a job here at J-D and haven’t looked back since,” said history teacher Tom Bennett of his career at Jamesville-DeWitt High School. That’s a bit of an understatement for a man who has taught here since 1973 and will retire this June after 43 years of service to J-DHS.


ballin' out

The Jamesville-DeWitt High School seniors are hoping to have a ball one last time before the end of their final year. Ball will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Carrier Circle from from 7 p.m. to midnight on June 11.


This June will be the last time Carlos Benedict walks the halls of Jamesville-DeWitt High School as a teacher. The beloved art teacher has been at J-DHS since 1987, when he took over the position from his father, George Benedict, who had been teaching here with Mr. Wenzel for 19 years. Between he and his father, the team of Wenzel and Benedict has been guiding the art department for 48 years. Many students at J-DHS will miss the tremendous help and instruction they received from Mr. Benedict.



senior art star

Senior Emily Maar is no stranger to receiving recognition for her art pieces. But her latest award is undoubtedly the most prestigious and impressive thus far. Maar entered numerous pieces into the Scholastic Art Awards in  December and was among five artists in this region to receive an American Visions Award. This nominated her to win an award on the national level and after a panel of judges selected her as the best of the five recipients, she was awarded the National Medal. Maar’s drawing, a self-portrait, will now travel for two years to be displayed in dozens of museums across the country. The national awards ceremony is set for early June at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
