Spotlight on


Tallmadge High School class officers and class advisers (Joni Giles, Julie Headrick and Arene Staszak) are putting together a program for sophomores called "Spotlight on Success Series."

Once a month they plan to host a program where a successful graduate of Tallmadge City Schools comes to share their advice, give direction and discuss the journey from making decisions in high school, to deciding on college choices, and other tips to help students navigate their way toward success.

Jon Lampley is the first speaker and is scheduled for Oct. 10, from 10:35 to 11:35 a.m.

Lampley's band, the Huntertones, released a live recording Sept. 30 and are touring to promote it. The band recorded the album last year from two live concerts in Columbus and another in Akron.

The advisers encourage alums to share their journey and give successful tips to members of the sophomore class. Their goal is to have one speaker for each month of the school year, September through May, equaling nine speakers in this inaugural year.

Students have an academic time period from 10:35 to 11:35 a.m., and this is when the advisers would like the Spotlight Series to take place during the day.

Those interested in sharing and giving back to Tallmadge students are asked to contact one of the following advisers/teachers: Joni Giles, 330-633-5505, ext. 1603, giles.joni@tallmadgeschools.org; Julie Headrick, 330-633-5505, ext. 1619, headrick.julie@tallmadgeschools.org; or Arene Staszak, 330-633-5505, ext. 1506, staszak.arene@tallmadgeschools.org.
