Repository Kids of Character for September

Each Month the Canton Repository recognizes Kids of Character, one boy and one girl from grades 4-8, from all the Stark County School Districts. This month the CCSD nominatedCash Reihl, a 6th grader from the Bulldog Virtual Academy, and JaMiya Martin, an 8th grader from the STEAMM Academy.

Principal Cebula said of Cash, "He attends all his meets and contributes to the class- while helping all the students- setting up fun activities in the classroom, acting as an "MC" for morning meeting- and always is positive. He raises rabbits, cares for a community garden, and is trying to help us start a 4H group!!"

Principal Thompson said of JaMiya, "She is a student that believes in serving others. She has asked to be scheduled into a period of culinary arts where she knows that the teacher needs assistance with students who have never had the class."
