Deer Park Jr. High Students Present on Thriving Learning Communities at Leadership Cincinnati

Three Deer Park Junior High students (L to R: Allison Miller, Jasmine Heard and Austin Moore) presented to Leadership Cincinnati at the Mayerson Academy on April 6.

On April 6, three Deer Park Junior High students traveled to the Mayerson Academy to present to Leadership Cincinnati about their experiences with Thriving Learning Communities.

The TLC program was instituted last year after the district was awarded a $106,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Education. The program is in partnership with the Mayerson Academy.

Leadership Cincinnati is the region's flagship leadership development program for leaders in the community. Deer Park Superintendent Jeff Langdon is a participant in the program.

Students Allison Miller (8th grade), Austin Moore (8th grade) and Jasmine Heard (7th grade) each addressed the group, telling of their positive experiences with the program. The trio presented before fielding questions from the audience.

"Mr. Langdon and I are extremely proud of our students," Assistant Superintendent Jay Phillips said. "They did a fantastic job presenting to the Leadership Cincinnati class and representing Deer Park. We look forward to seeing these students become future leaders of Cincinnati."
