A little thing like water matters when it comes to children.
Within minutes of notifying families at Horizon Education Center, 4911 Grove Ave., Lorain, of plans to stuff a mini-bus with water for children in Flint, Michigan, donations started stacking up.
“I’ve got more than 100 packs of water right now,” said Teria Bivins, director of Horizon Education Center. “They’re excited.”
The early childhood center cares for about 120 children from toddlers to sixth graders, Bivins said.
At a family night event the youngsters painted three banners to send to Flint, and focused on healthy activities such as eating fruits and exercising with a professional trainer.
“Our family night theme is ‘A new year, a new me,’ ” Bivins said. “We incorporated the water in with that.”
On a wall in the lunch room, a banner with colorful handprints painted on it said, “We support Flint, Michigan.”
The children decorated other banners that were stretched out on tables.
“The kids have all been eager to get their parents to bring water, because they know there are kids just like them who need water,” said Lydia Wanek, business coordinator at Horizon Education Center. “The parents have been happy to do this as well.”
Frequently the school supports causes and the community through fundraisers, she said.
“We did a can drive last month, and the preschool room won,” Wanek said. “The preschool parents support a whole bunch of activities.”
So far, Bivins knows of four Lorain drop off locations: 422 Broadway Ave.; 1518 Long Ave., 611 E. 28th St., and 728 E. 29th St., she said. She’s not sure which location she will use.
On Feb. 5, the big event of the week involves loading a mini-bus or two with water bottles to drop off at a collection site on the way to Michigan.
For information about the water collection or the Horizon Education Center, call 440-277-5437.

Maurice Clarett Visits the 21st Century after school students at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School

Former Ohio State University running back, Maurice Clarett visited with the 21 st Century after school program at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School. Clarett, a star running back who helped elevate the Buckeyes to a national championship in 2002, urged students to use the resources around them to build a successful life, career and future. Clarett blamed his downfall on hanging out with the wrong people. Clarett shared his signature phrase: “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future.” Staff and students had a great time and everyone left with an autographed Maurice Clarett photograph.

Educational Academy for Boys and Girls and Midnimo Cross Cultural Middle School, in conjunction with the 21st CCLC after-school program and COSI, held their annual Mental Math/Project MIND Mathematics Competition on May 23, 2014 at COSI.

The 21st CCLC students worked hard during the 21st CCLC after school program to prepare for both the mental math competition and the project competition. Students submitted projects pertaining to Mathematics in the categories of: Math Art, Math Puzzles/Brain Teasers, Math Songs, Math Games and Math Other.

Submissions for the math projects included a Ferris wheel that measured 10 feet in height designed by the Midnimo Cross Cultural Middle School 21st CCLC After School Program students. This submission was noticed by the Director of Curriculum and Assessment for OAPCS, Lindsey Blackburn, who took a picture and posted it on OAPCS’s Twitter.

Students from the 21st CCLC Afterschool Program at the Educational Academy for Boys and Girls submitted a functioning roller coaster, which was also a crowd favorite.

Parent involvement was at an all time high with over 200 parents and siblings attending the event and exploring COSI.

Ohio Department of Youth Services recognizes YES Club

The Youth Engaged in Service Program, or YES Club, has been recognized by the Ohio Department of Youth Services after a nomination for the Community Recognition Award by juvenile court Judge Robert Hoover.

“It makes us feel great that juvenile court is acknowledging that a program such as YES helps to keep kids on the right path,” said Amanda Vozzella, director of programming at YES Club.

One of the club’s members, Macenzie Schimpf, also was nominated for a Community Recognition Award. Macenzie and Vozzella attended a ceremony Dec. 5 at the Embassy Suites Hotel near the Columbus Airport at which the YES Club and Macenzie received awards from the department.

More than 30 juvenile court judges, other state officials and dignitaries attended the ceremony, Hoover said.

When filling out the nomination form, Hoover asked the directors at the club which specific member he should nominate. Vozzella said it was easy to pick Macenzie.

“She’s very deserving of this nomination,” Vozzella said. “She’s really grown.”

Macenzie, 16, said she has been attending the club for six years.

“Macenzie has made incredible improvements,” Hoover said.

The opportunity to participate in the club has been important for Macenzie, Hoover said.

“She’s just blossomed, and that might not have happened if she had not had the YES Club,” Hoover said. “She’s the perfect model for taking advantage of everything that YES has offered her and she’s blossomed.”

The YES Club, which doesn’t receive government funds, Hoover said, is for youths between the ages of 11 and 18. Macenzie is nearing the end of her time there, but once she leaves the club, she still will have the support of the staff, said Vee Hottle, the director of the club.

“I’m excited to see what she does as a young adult after she graduates high school,” Hottle said.

Macenzie has expressed a desire to go to college and study sociology or psychology.

“She said that her time here has helped to gear her that direction,” Vozzella said.

Macenzie is one of many area teens that have been helped by the club. The club serves up to 75 youths, Hoover said.

“We should be very proud that we have a youth service organization that was recognized state wide for what it’s doing … because I’m proud,” Hoover said.

The Career Paths and Positive Steps Afterschool Programs were honored to hear Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Ronald E. Rosser on Tuesday, December 3, 2013. Rosser is a former United States Army soldier who received the United States military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in the Korean War. He is one of only 78 living recipients of this honor.

Part of Rosser’s official Medal of Honor citation reads:

Cpl. Rosser, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry above and beyond the call of duty. While assaulting heavily fortified enemy hill positions, Company L, 38th Infantry Regiment, was stopped by fierce automatic-weapons, small-arms, artillery, and mortar fire. Cpl. Rosser, a forward observer, was with the lead platoon of Company L when it came under fire from 2 directions. Cpl. Rosser turned his radio over to his assistant and, disregarding the enemy fire, charged the enemy positions armed with only carbine and a grenade.”

The Career Paths program is located at Niles Middle School (Niles, Ohio) and the Positive Steps Afterschool Program is located at Brookfield Middle School (Brookfield, Ohio). The Youngstown State University Center for Human Services Development serves as the fiscal/grant administrator for both programs.

“This was an opportunity for all my students to meet an actual hero,” said Ricky S. George, Associate Director, YSU Center for Human Services Development. “I want my kids to walk out of here with a better understanding of the sacrifice our veterans made. This was a rare opportunity to meet an actual recipient of the Medal of Honor.”

“On Tuesday, November 19th, the Career Paths Afterschool Program at Niles Middle School did a presentation on the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The students worked on the presentation over a three week period and it included not only the events of November 22, 1963, but also key moments in Kennedy’s presidency and various aspects of his life before becoming president. The Career Paths Afterschool Program is operated by the Youngstown State University Center for Human Services Development.”
