'Girls on the Run'

Ask a middle school student to spend their free-time scampering along a track twice weekly and most might not find it appealing. Despite the strong commitment, thousands of young girls across the nation boldly participate in Girls on the Run to build self-confidence and lifelong skills.

Greek Closet to provide attire for Kelloggsville prom

For some high school students, attending prom means dropping hundreds of dollars on a dress or suit, a pair of shoes, accessories and a hair appointment. This does not take into account the cost of the event itself. Ultimately, the price of prom is simply outside of many students’ budgets, and all for attire that might only be worn for a single night.
