Staff Reports

Junior Payton Jordan will begin her senior year with a new title in the Santaluces Criminal Justice Academy. She was prompted to the position of Cadet Captain during ceremony Monday. She will be the ranking cadet in the academy next year.

This year’s theme at the academy was to teach a sense of community by giving back.  Several fund raisers were completed by the cadets for Adopt-a-Family, Wounded Warriors of South Florida, and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Jordan said her focus next year will be a fundraiser involving a book drive for local elementary schools. After graduation, she plans to attend Florida Atlantic University and major in biology and chemistry.

“I’ve seen this academy do so many great things,” said Jordan after the ceremony. “I want to see what I can do next year.”
