Jasmyne Roberts '21:  Greater Jacksonville Sports Awards Female Athlete of the Year

In a virtual ceremony held on Monday, June 28, the Greater Jacksonville High School Sports Awards recognized Northeast Florida’s top performers in high school athletics for the 2020-2021 year. Among those recognized was Bishop Kenny’s own, Jasmyne Roberts ’21, who was awarded the title of Female Athlete of the Year.

Though she has been recognized for many individual awards throughout her Crusader career, Jasmyne has always had a “We over Me” mentality. As a three-time first-team All-First Coast selection, she has helped carry the Crusaders to three straight final four appearances and 2 state runner-up titles. Earlier this year, she was named the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 4A Girls Basketball Player of the Year for the second consecutive year and the Miss Basketball Runner-up. In addition, Jasmyne finished her high school career with 2,224 points and 1,005 rebounds in her four seasons.

Jasmyne is most deserving of this recognition, and the staff and faculty at Bishop Kenny are extremely proud of her accomplishments. She will continue playing at the collegiate level while studying Sports Broadcasting at the University of Miami. Congratulations, Jasmyne!

David Hoyt '21:  National Catholic Committee on Scouting Scholarship Recipient

Congratulations to David Hoyt ’21 who has been awarded a $2,000 scholarship by the National Catholic Committee on Scouting (NCCS) through the Emmett J. Doerr Memorial Scout Scholarship Fund.  Eight service scholarships were awarded nation wide to recognize scouts for outstanding service and leadership in the areas of Church, Community, School, and Scouting.

David achieved the rank of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America while in his sophomore year at Bishop Kenny.   It took two years to plan, organize and fundraise $3,000 for the 25’ x 13’ interactive concrete sundial that was built at Christ the King Catholic School.  David worked closely with L’Arche Harbor House of Jacksonville which is a faith filled residential community for adults with developmental disabilities.  They created the tiles used for the time of day and the months of the year on the sun dial in their Rainbow Workshop.  David dedicated the sun dial to his mother, Erica Hoyt, who passed away when he was very young. 

David credits his maternal grandparents who adopted him for introducing him to scouting.  They took him to an Eagle Court of Honor at the age of five and from that day on he was determined to become an Eagle Scout.  “Ever since starting scouts and practicing my faith, volunteering has been at the forefront of everything that I do.  I am always glad to volunteer because I love to see someone with a smile on their face, and it puts purpose in my soul,” stated David.  He has also earned three of the Religious Emblems offered by NCCS including the Light of Christ, Ad Altare Dei, and Pope Pius XII. 

David actively volunteers at Christ the King parish as an altar server, a member of the youth group, and a Vacation Bible School teacher, and plans to attend Jacksonville University in the fall.
