EUGENE — A student from O’Hara School here has won a national education contest sponsored by the Catholic Daughters of the Americas. Joshua Jesiah drew a depiction of a diverse group of citizens doing good in the community, including feeding the poor, caring for the sick and recycling. The theme he picked was “Here I am Lord, I come to do your will” from Psalm 40. 

Tess Cersovski, Catholic Daughters state regent, presented the award at a school assembly Sept. 16.
