graduation information letter
Staff Spotlight: Mr. James Harris
Buckeye High School Social Studies teacher James Harris will be attending a unique event at the beginning of April. Mr. Harris is a veteran of the US Army and had deployed to Afghanistan nearly 10 years ago. Mr. Harris served in the US Army from 2007-2011 where he earned the rank of 1st Lieutenant. His unit, Bravo Company 2-508th Parachute Infantry Regiment will be honored with a reunion of sorts in Charlotte, NC. Through a veteran non-profit, The Independence Fund, and the Department of Veterans Affairs his unit was selected because of its high casualty and suicide rate to hold a retreat that focuses on the mental health of veterans. "The goal is to ensure the unit that experiences battle together, experiences healing together." The trip will also allow for Mr. Harris to meet representatives from the United States Congress as well as members of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
National Honor Society Induction and Service Project
Buckeye High School's National Honor Society recently held their induction ceremony for juniors and sophomores who had been selected to join. Each new inductee was considered for exhibiting excellence in scholarship, character, leadership, and service. At the induction we were honored to have Executive Director of Feeding Medina County, Sandy Hinkle share about how the need of food insecurity is met in Medina County. As well as inducting 19 new students, the 25 graduating seniors were presented their honor cords. Buckeye's NHS will be participating in a service learning project by taking a field trip on April 5th to the Cleveland Food Bank. The students will visit the Cleveland Food Bank and learn about how items are received, packages, and delivered to individuals and families in need from Northeast Ohio. The students will then volunteer helping to sort food and prepare backpacks for delivery to school aged children. At the conclusion of the trip the students will travel to Ohio City for lunch and visit spots such as the historic Westside Market.
