Two Akron students tapped into issues happening in the world to win the Ohio Afterschool Network (OAN) Summer Pitch Challenge.

Nicholas Reese, an 11th-grader at North High School, shared his perception of the world, with his business idea based on everyone not getting an equal shot at success.

His idea, “Three key words: There’s still hope” provides students with one-on-one tutors to ensure students understand lectures, directions and ensure everyone succeeds.
