Fundraiser a success
Many students, staff and community members generously supported the 20th annual Jeremy’s Kids Christmas fundraiser in memory of Chardon High School teacher Rob Mizen’s son Jeremy, who tragically died at the age of 6 in 1999 as a result of a car accident on Christmas Eve. This year’s Jeremy’s Kids initiative raised approximately $8,355.
Using those funds, nearly 60 CHS students from the school’s Interact Club, National Honor Society and Actively Caring for People (AC4P) club gathered together at the Chardon Walmart on Dec. 13 to collectively shop for holiday presents for approximately 15 local families in need. The students shopped under the leadership of both Mr. Mizen and math teacher Scott Brown.
