Blessing is a student a​t​ McEbright CLC. She has attended McEbright since ​second ​grade​,​ and all​ of​ her teachers report​ to us​ that she is an amazingly talented student.

​Principal Deborah Musiek tells us Blessing shows ​"​true leadership skills​"​ in the classroom and all areas of​ ​school.

 Blessing’s favorite subject is math, and she enjoys working on order-of-operations problems. Blessing is one of the highest achieving students at McEbright.

​In fact, her test scores in math and reading place her in the 80th percentile​.​

​We may find ​Blessing​ at another Akron public school next fall, as she says she​ is planning to attend Helen Arnold CLC for ​sixth​ grade​. More immediately, however, her excitement is about her summer vacation and a planned trip to the beach with her famil​y.

Have fun, Blessing!​
