Celebrating Fatherhood at Breakfast with Heroes


Greenview Upper Elementary School celebrated the tremendous influence and responsibility of fatherhood by hosting a Breakfast with Heroes event for 4th grade boys and fathers or other male mentors in the gym on Friday, May 10, 2019.  Approximately sixty fathers and father-figures attended the program which began with a delicious hot breakfast featuring waffles, sausage, juice and other refreshments.  Several representatives from the City of South Euclid were in attendance, including South Euclid Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers, Police Chief Kevin Nietert and Assistant Fire Chief David Csire.  After breakfast, those in attendance listened to guest speaker, Eddie Arnold, a retired engineer who now pursues his passion for drag car racing as a member of the National Hot Rod Association.  Mr. Arnold shared about the importance of hard work, perseverance and academic achievement which helped him to reach various personal and career goals.  During his remarks, Mr. Arnold also described how STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) related skills play a vital role in both engineering and drag racing.  Following the guest speaker presentation, each student received a brown, gold or white colored tie, along with printed directions, and spent a few minutes with their father or father-figure to learn how to properly tie a necktie.  The program concluded with the students taking a group picture with all special guests in attendance.  The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools wish to thank Garfield Memorial Church and United Way for sponsoring the Breakfast with Heroes event and providing our students with an inspiring message!
