Many of our East Dayton students had things to be proud of this past February. The Youth Champions Program, led by Nicholas Chartain, had a record turnout for the ACT Prep Program, a partnership with Sinclair Community College to help prepare high school students for the ACT and cover the cost of testing. Eighteen students attended the three required sessions and took their test, which they are now awaiting results for.
Meanwhile, two of our Camp Mariposa campers, Rita S. and Nevaeh M., won in the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Drug Free Coalition contest, an annual poster contest for students grades six to twelve to increase awareness of the harmful effects of substance abuse. Students could enter either a poem or a poster. Rita took 1st Place for her poster and Nevaeh took second Place for her poem. Both girls did phenomenally at the awards ceremony, where Prevention Services Coordinator, Wendy Berkshire helped present awards.
