LHS presentation earns Scripps Foundation sponsorship
They stood in front of executives with Scripps Foundation and presented their cause: a special book drive to benefit Oyler (a Cincinnati Public School serving kindergarten through grade 12). Those four Loveland High School (LHS) students – Danny Moss, Jacob Clements, Eric Thomas and Ben Federman – found success, earning $2,000 to purchase reading materials that will benefit students with reading disabilities. The presentation was part of a larger initiative between LHS Boys Lacrosse and Elder Lacrosse to sponsor a book drive for the students attending Oyler.
“This is a true team effort between our own Loveland Boys Lacrosse and Elder Lacrosse to provide these students with the materials they need,” said Mike Pritz, Loveland Lacrosse coach. “We are proud of the way the LHS students prepared and presented to the Scripps Foundation, and now our request is to the Loveland community to support this cause by donating books.”
Loveland Boys Lacrosse is accepting all donations of used books, with the collection scheduled for the Wednesday, April 30, Loveland-Elder game taking place at Loveland. Junior Varsity begins at 5:30 p.m. and varsity begins at 7:30 p.m. Donors can leave books in donation bins that will be set up on site.
“We are truly friends on and off the field, and we were excited to join forces for this tremendous cause,” said Danny Moss, LHS freshman lacrosse player.
