Buchtel Community Learning Center middle school students participated in the annual Ohio Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Leadership conference, where they won awards for their community projects.

The eighth-grade chapter finished fourth in the state for their Plastic Comfort project. Students implemented a plastic bag recycle campaign at Buchtel and used the bags to crochet mats for the homeless. The mats were given to Haven of Rest this month.

The seventh-grade chapter received a First Time New Chapter award and won a silver medal for their project, buchtel@yourservice.1040, which involved Buchtel students writing thank-you letters and sending care packages to deployed troops.

The students were led by their teacher-adviser Teddy Nantambi Mwonyonyi, a family and consumer sciences instructor.
