One in Three. That is how many Skutt Catholic students participate in the work study program. The Financial Aid program draws students from more walks of life than any other group, club or sport at Skutt Catholic. And it's thanks to generous donors that Skutt Catholic is able to offer it. In order...

I have been on work study for all four years at Skutt Catholic, just like many other students here, but fortunately I have been one of the lucky ones that got the chance to do almost every job you could think of. I have gotten to know many of my teachers and how they specifically like their rooms to...

There is something satisfying about entering a restaurant and being greeted by name and asked, "so, the regular?" It makes you feel appreciated, as if the employees who take the requests actually care about you personally. I, myself, can attest to this. I've been employed at Mockingbird Cupcakes in...

5,949. That's the number of theoretical moves the longest chess game could last. While many people don't have the drive or patience to wait out such a thought-provoking game, Skutt Catholic's Chess Club has seen many a long match. Open to anyone, the Chess Club is not one of the things you hear about...

Picture a classroom filled with students, your friends, people you've known since you were little, even people you might not necessarily care for; all your classmates. Now picture a fourth of them disappearing, becoming empty seats. Unfortunately, this is a sad reality, for at least a fourth of our...

Eleven months ago, 56-year-old Jim Johnston, a faithful cyclist, had just retired from local high school, Millard West, when he was tragically hit and killed while riding his bike on Omaha’s West Center Road in Douglas County. A close friend of Johnston’s, and Nebraska State Senator, Rick Kolowski,...

Father Jeff Mollner and senior Darya Kaboli-Nejad are the last two people most would pair as friends. Fr. Jeff, being a Catholic priest, and Darya, describing herself as not necessarily having a religion, have very opposing viewpoints and seem that they would not get along; somehow, however, despite...

As a freshman, Skutt Catholic alumnus Brian Peska wouldn't exactly categorize himself as the star-to-be. "I was just a very small, undersized freshman with not a ton of skill." Coach Brad Hildebrandt thought otherwise. "I met Brian as a young wrestler in our feeder club," Hildebrandt said. "He had...

Accidentally blabbering the name "Mom" at a teacher is always an awkward situation. Once it's done, it's done, and there's no way to unsay what your mind subconsciously spoke out loud. Its an honest mistake to fess up to since you may spend more time with these people rather than your own parents...

Sunshine and shorts in January isn't very common, especially in Nebraska where it's usually freezing and snowing.
