Elkhart Community Schools is shining the spotlight on Pierre Moran Middle School and Elkhart Area Career Center where students are demonstrating how they can help make a difference for their schools and school community.
In the first article, you can read about the Pierre Moran Move2Stand program, organized by teachers and under a student council leadership team. This team of 57 students selected by their teachers to participate and lead organize dances, lead fundraisers, and help build a sense of connection and community at school.

In the second article, you can read about how students in the Elkhart Area Career Center (EACC) test their own knowledge by working with and teaching young students. Thanks to the leadership of Ryan Gortney, Motorcycle/Outdoor Power Technology Instructor, younger (5th-8th grade) students interested in small engines, have an opportunity to work alongside juniors and seniors at the EACC. The hands-on experiences benefit both groups of students where the younger children get to see first-hand what is involved and the older students get to demonstrate their knowledge and skills.
