February 26, 2015 -- Lorain County JVS Early Childhood Education Students raised over $500 and awareness among students and staff about the condition of Epilepsy.
They called their campaign “Love Purple” and hosted a “Love Purple” Day at the JVS which encouraged students and staff to donate $1 and wear purple to show support. Students also raised funds by walking in the Epilepsy Winter Walk on January 31st at South Park Mall in Strongsville.
Over 200 students and staff participated in an educational forum hosted by the students to learn more about Epilepsy. JVS Social Studies Teacher, Jennifer Pluta, shared her personal story of Epilepsy with the groups as a part of the two day event.
The Early Childhood Education students are members of FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America), and they chose to support this cause for their chapter service project. They will be presenting the project at the regional FCCLA competition at Lorain County Community College on March 7th.
