Crystal James, GDHS 1995 – 1999, won the $1100 jackpot. The other winner was the GDHS alumni scholarship funds.
Crystal owns Crystal’s Corner Cafe on Haggerty Road in Newbury. She started in business when she was in Grade 3, helping out Judy Jones, a local entrepreneur. In March 2009, Judy was ready to retire from her Newbury restaurant, and Crystal bought her out.
Crystal fondly remembers her GDHS years. A highlight was working on a model of the Glencoe arena complex, finishing the project after exams when everyone else had disappeared. She was the proud winner of the Communication and Technology Award in 1997. Selected for a special class run by Mrs. DeVries in 1997, Crystal remembers learning life skills that helped her prepare for owning her own business.
Congratulations, Crystal! Thank you for supporting the GDHS Scholarship Fund.
