London Cobbs is a young man on the rise. His family, school, church, and North Lawndale community are proud of him and excited about prospects for his future.
London graduated this year from Holy Family School. He will be attending St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy in Wisconsin this fall at great sacrifice to his family. They gathered July 15 at Blessed Sacrament Church, 2134 South Central Park, to celebrate London’s accomplishments, wish him well, and raise some much-needed money for his journey.
London is an Honor Roll student who excels at math and communication. He is the Head Acolyte for the Chapel. He led the Holy Family Angels Basketball Team to the State Tournament and was named to the All Tournament Team. He was MVP for the Chicagoland Classic Basketball Tournament. London’s long-range goal is to pursue a college degree in Business Administration.
