The Glover Gazette Team and Project Rise staff take a picture together to celebrate the Gazette’s hard work!
This year Project Rise was the grateful recipient of The Glover Gazette’s annual newspaper sales. The Glover Gazette is the product of a wonderful team of teachers and volunteers who were able to inspire a talented group of young students to create and sell a school newspaper every month of the school year.

Buchtel High School Students present mats at the Haven of Rest
During this past school year, a talented group of students made sleeping mats out of plastic bags as a part of a service project. The students were part of Teddy Nantambi Mwonyonyi’s Family & Consumer Sciences class at Buchtel High School. The class consisted of 7th and 8th grade students.
The mats that the students made were donated to the Haven of Rest in Akron. Staff from Project Rise and the class of young students attended a tour of the Haven of Rest after presenting their donation of mats. Project Rise is a collaborative effort by Akron Public Schools, local shelters, and the Akron community to provide supplemental educational services to children and youth experiencing homelessness.
