Orange Students Recognized in eXpressions Program
January 09, 2015
Four Orange High School students received special recognition for work they submitted in the Cleveland Clinic's eXpressions Program. The 10-year-old program is an educational initiative that utilizes creative expression to engage high school students in the exploration of science and medicine. More than 1200 entries were submitted this year and were evaluated on interpretation, presentation, creativity, and initiative.
OHS sophomores Jake Van de Walle (center left) and Jesse Orlean (center right) each received red ribbons and sophomores Anjali Kashyap (left) and Emma Scott Moran (right) earned white ribbons for their work.
In addition to providing participants with a deeper appreciation of science and its connections to other disciplines, the eXpressions program gives students a monetary award and sponsoring OHS teachers Kathy Frazier, Pat McNulty, and Vikas Turakhia a $100 educational grant.
The program connects to Common Core state standards and provides a creative way to cultivate 21st Century Skills. Award-winning work will be featured in the eXpressions catalogue and on display in the 2015 exhibition at the Global Center for Health Innovation.
