Dozens of Clintonville students received well deserved recognition last Friday as the Middle Schools and local businesses highlighted their positive efforts to make a difference in the lives of people around them.
Our own Sue Lusk-Gleich was one of the founders of this concept 25 years ago and she continues to support and work with the Clintonville Chamber of Commerce when they began to oversee the project.
“The thing I like about the breakfast is that it honors local middle schools and no other program out there does this. It’s cool that we recognize them because the work they do is out of the goodness of their heart. Their academics have to be good and they are recognized for donating their time for activities outside school,” says Sue. “ There is a real variety of volunteer activities such as partnering with special Olympians, fundraising for H20 for Life, or helping their Sunday schools and elderly neighbors.”
