Our Legacy Message Board

Mr. Floodís Spirit Alive and Well in SJP Community
The St. Johnís Prep Family mourned the passing of Mr. Edward J. Flood on August 5, 2019. Mr. Flood served the Mater Christi and St. Johnís Prep Communities with an indefatigable commitment as a teacher, Athletic Director and basketball and tennis coach. In his fifty-one year career at Mater Christi/St. Johnís, Mr. Flood guided and mentored faculty, coaches and thousands of students, so many of whom shared fond memories and heartfelt tributes. Students praised his kindness, his encouragement and his positive approach to life. One Mater Christi student called Mr. Flood his role model for life because he inspired him to be a better person. Former St. Johnís Prep faculty member and baseball Coach, Jim Benson, expressed his condolences and captured Mr. Floodís essence and spirit. ďHe was a true representative of what it means to be a servant leader: one who shares power, puts the needs of others first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible,Ē Benson said. Mr. Flood has certainly left this legacy and was a blessing to all who crossed his path.

His spirit and legacy of kindness and generosity continues through The Flood Family Scholarship Fund which was established in 2018 to celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Floodís fifty years of dedication to the students of Mater Christi and St. Johnís Prep.

Donations may be made to the Flood Family Scholarship from the St. John's Prep website
just select Giving and then the scholarship.

Mrs. Flood congratulates Daniel Stankiewicz í23 on being the first recipient of the Flood Family Scholarship. Daniel, an honor student and parishioner of Sacred Heart Church in Glendale, exemplifies the characteristics of scholarship, integrity, service and dedication that this award recognizes.
