For the third time in the last four years, a Brush senior was a finalist for the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage's annual Stop the Hate! Essay Contest. Christina Charlillo was one of ten juniors and seniors chosen from over 3,000 entrants to compete for a $40,000 scholarship. The awards ceremony held on April 30th was judged by local community, business, and religious leaders as well as last year's grand prize winner, Justin Bachman. Christina did a wonderful job representing SEL at the event as well as this week's Cleveland City Council meeting where the finalists met with Mayor Frank Jackson.
