Graduate Donates Popcorn & Candy from Regal Cinemas

Class of 2011 graduate Kyle Anthony has worked for the Regal Cinemas Group both in New York and North Carolina. He recently returned to Lima as the General Manager of the Lima location, when the company accounced the closure of theaters across the country.

With popcorn all popped and no customers, he knew he wanted to donate it to schools and churches in the community. Kyle, along with his wife Shayla and daughter Arya, distributed the popcorn and candy to Elida and Shawnee schools, the Shawnee Cable Road Alliance Church and the Lima Rescue Mission. Thank you, Kyle. Elida Spirit is Generosity!

Student's Artwork chosen for the Annual Ohio Art Exhibit

The Ohio House of Representatives holds an Annual Student Art Exhibit which includes art from students all across Ohio. Sophomore Ava Long's artwork was chosen to be included in the exhibit. Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic and the state-building closures, the reception was canceled but a slideshow was created that includes all the artwork from across the state. Ava's is slide #5 and is linked here and shown below. Ava will be mailed a congratulatory letter; a certificate of participation signed by Donna Collins, executive director of the Ohio Arts Council, and Carrie Barnett, OAEA president; and an award of a $100.00 check from the Ohio Art Education Association.

Congratulations, Ava and thank you to Mrs. Johnson for helping showcase Ava's artwork!
