Members of the National Junior Art Honor Society (NJAHS) created and sold pieces of jewelry, scribble crayons and mini crayons, all made out of recycled materials. The proceeds, which were $250, were donated to Project RISE, a collaborative effort by Akron Public Schools, local shelters and the Akron community to provide supplemental educational services to children and teens experiencing homelessness, according to Project RISE officials.
Rachel Breece-Stith, a Project RISE staff member, accepted the donation on behalf of Project RISE during a morning assembly Jan. 10. She is shown above, second from right, with NJAHS President Allison Simon, at left, Vice President Adrienne Hite and Treasurer Jessica Wong, at right.
According to Project RISE officials, Susan Yingling, an art teacher at Miller South, had the idea to do this project in 2010 after reading about Project RISE. This is Miller South’s fourth year implementing the project.
