OHS Students Honored in CCF Literary Expressions Program!
Congratulations to Orange High School students (left to right) Eva Rudow, Mi Row, and Allison Lester on being recently honored in the Cleveland Clinic Literary Expressions Program!
Out of more than 1500 submissions, Row received a blue ribbon; Lester received a white ribbon; and Rudow received an honorable mention. They were all honored at a special reception at The Cleveland Art Museum and their works will be published in this year's edition of the Literary eXpressions book.
Students in Mr. Vikas Turakhia's and Mr. Pat McNulty's tenth grade Honors English classes in collaboration with gifted education specialist Ms. Kathy Frazier had the opportunity to participate in this interdisciplinary program which utilizes creativity to engage high school students in the world of scientific research. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students produce creative interpretations of research conducted by Cleveland Clinic high school interns during the summer. Orange High School seniors Gwendolyn Thomas and Jin Hu presented the research they conducted to the classes. Some of the challenging topics included eating disorders, strokes, organ transplants, diabetes management, asthma, and the power of positive words. In addition to giving participants a deeper, real-world understanding of multiple disciplines, the program promotes innovation, communication, and teamwork.
