As an athlete and scholar, Cedric Bennett has done Chiefland proud.

After excelling in basketball and baseball at Chiefland High, Bennett went on to be a scholarship athlete at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

Bennett played three years of hoops and two years on the diamond for the Knights.

Then, Bennett was drafted by the Chicago Cubs and played Rookie League ball in Arizona last year.

Showing balance between athletics and classroom, Bennett was also an honor student both at CHS and Lynn. He earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in 2005 and is currently studying for his Master's Degree.

With a shoulder injury ending his baseball career, Bennett was fortunate to have his academic merits to fall back on.

He is currently working in the financial services field with ING out of Boca Raton. He lives in nearby Boynton Beach.

To give back to the community he grew up in, Bennett said he will be returning to Chiefland in the near future to give free financial advice to anyone requesting it.
