This November, Adrian Minority Achievement Club (MAC) Scholars and Rubies organized a food drive to help their fellow schoolmates give back to the community. Together, the students collected more than 300 cans, which will be donated to the South Euclid Community Center food drive and local families in need this holiday season.
Parents or community members, who would still like to contribute to the food drive, may drop donations at the south Center until Friday, Dec. 16.
The Adrian Scholars and Rubies program helps close the achievement gap between minority students and their counterparts by providing opportunities to focus on education, give back to the community, and plan for the future.
The students in the Scholars and Rubies program are school leaders, who set examples for their peers. Oftentimes, they present at school assemblies, make announcements and organize programs and fundraisers for younger students. Scholars and Rubies also begin to think about college and careers by participating in educational field trips.
Boys join the prestigious Scholars group, and girls join the equally prestigious Rubies. Students interested in being a Scholar or Ruby may talk with their teacher about the nomination process.
Congratulations to Adrian MAC Scholars and Rubies for organizing such a successful food drive, and thank you to all students and parents who helped make the holidays brighter for area families. We’re very proud of you.
