Happy Thursday, Hornets!
A Generous Donation
TCC (The Cellular Connection) through "Culture of Good" provides supplies for Hornet Park teachers
TCC, the largest Verizon Wireless premium retailer in the US, has stores in over 30 states. The Culture of Good is a cultural movement, launched in 2013, of TCC doing good in its local communities where stores are located.
All efforts of good happen on a local level by the employees who help lead what has become a grass roots movement changing lives and communities in the US.
Local is what the Culture of Good is all about. Partnerships happen with local organizations by Donate a Dollar; TCC's in-store donations that are given by customers. Each dollar given goes right back into that community to further efforts to do good. Employees are encouraged to give their time to volunteer with any local organization that are provided quarterly donations.
Emerson Avenue and Southport Road Manager, JD McClary, a BGHS alum, led the effort to give back to BGCS. TCC and the Culture of Good donated supplies last year to South Grove Intermediate School, with Hornet Park Elementary the lucky recipient this year. Many thanks to JD and his staff for their generosity to Beech Grove City Schools!

Central Indiana Regional Science Fair
Three BGHS students competed at the Central Indiana Regional Science Fair at Marian University over the March 6 weekend. The three students have been working since last summer with Dr. Clark Gedney, Purdue University professor, on their projects. The three students who competed were Olivia Malone, Brent Strahla and Shelby Wright. Each chose projects that they researched at the Purdue labs. Their topics are as follows:
- Decreasing the Development of Carcinogenic Cells in Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma)-Olivia Malone
- Harnessing Energy from Methane Gas- Brent Strahla
- Pausing the Production of Leukemia with Bee Venom- Shelby Wright
While none of the students placed, Mr. Kevin Banks, Science Department Chair, and Advisor, was proud of what they were able to accomplish. All three students continue to work on their projects and will be presenting their findings later in the semester.
We apologize for the quality of the photos below - the camera used to take the photos was not cooperative the day of the Science Fair!
