Jackie was a faithful member, who dedicated her life to Christ and worked in the church, wearing many hats. She has left a void and some big shoes to fill.
Jackie was a teacher in the Omaha Public Schools for 33 years, before she decided to retire. After retirement, she decided to go back and work part-time as the "Parent Liaison", at Hale Middle School. She also worked at Mandela Elementary School, as the "Volunteer Coordinator, until her unexpected demise.
Our dear sister was passionate about education and dedicated her life to uplifting young people in various stages of their educational journey. Jackie's expertise in education was a gift that we valued in our church. We depended on her, and she always delivered.
We miss Jackie and could not have thought of a better way to honor her memory, then by establishing a scholarship in her name. She shared her wisdom, knowledge, and love to so many, and for that, we will be forever grateful.
Our first $1,000.00 scholarship was awarded February 11, 2018, 4:00 p.m., at the annual Concerned and Caring Educator's (CACE) Scholarship banquet dinner.
Taviaunna Knight is the recipient of the Jackie A. Dorsey Memorial CACE Scholarship. She is a student at Omaha Benson High School. Taviaunna's plans are to seek a degree in Elementary Education.
We offer blessings to Taviaunna for continued success, as she continues her educational journey.
