Strongsville High School Juniors Justin Collins and Jasmeen Khuban have been selected to participate in the Look Up to Cleveland Program.
Look Up To Cleveland is a high school leadership development and diversity awareness program for Greater Cleveland’s outstanding high school leaders. Participants in their junior year are selected from a pool of applicants representing public, private, charter and parochial schools within Cuyahoga County. The goal is to develop and enhance student leadership skills while fostering an appreciation for the Northeast Ohio community in which they live. In addition, Look Up To Cleveland prepares students for responsible citizenship. Students benefit from team projects and unique opportunities to hear and converse with high-level business, government and community leaders throughout the school year. Strongsville was lucky enough to have both nominees selected for participation this school year. Congratulations to both of these fine students.
SHS SENIOR, NASH POTTER, SELECTED FOR BUCKEYE BOYS STATE PROGRAM
This past summer, Nash Potter was selected to participate in the American Legion’s Buckeye Boy’s State. He went to Bowling Green State University “not knowing what to expect” he admitted. He ran for the position Ohio State Representative of House and won the nomination from the city of “Balser.” He worked as committee leader of Veterans Affairs. I wore his suit to “work” everyday which lasted from about 7:30am-5:00pm every day. Potter stated “I have never experienced such a sense of brotherhood on any other camp I’ve ever been too. [The boys I met there] became a group of 30 best friends and I would do anything for any one of those guys.”
American Legion Buckeye Boys State is an eight-day hands-on experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Ohio government. Founded in 1936, Buckeye Boys State is the largest Boys State program in the nation with an attendance of over 1,200 young men annually, representing nearly 600 Ohio High Schools, several on-line High Schools, and the Home Schooled Community.
