Western Buckeye ESC (Northwest Region) – Programming Highlights

The 21st CCLC site at Grover Hill Elementary hosted Buckeyeman, who talked about the benefits and joys of testing.  This was an assembly for the school to hear that everything you want to do in life revolves around taking some kind of test.  Drivers license, schooling, etc.


Richmond Heights Local School District (Northeast Region) – Programming Highlights

In their 21st CCLC program at Richmond Heights Local Schools, the students of the RiseUp Afterschool Program are leading a broadcasting club called Spartan Nation News (after their mascot).

The students have been creating news segments – creating a special edition called Becoming Black History.  They have featured late comedian John Witherspoon, award-winning gymnast Simone Biles, and now, late basketball superstar Kobe Bryant.

Check out the Kobe Bryant edition below, as well as the link for a commercial students created, to spread the word about their program!
