“This was my second time on Urban Plunge and I wanted to go back because I had such an amazing time the first time, and this time was no different,” said Buchanan. 

Seniors Share Passion of Sports With Younger Students

Four seniors on the Eagles varsity baseball team came together off the diamond to make a difference for younger children by using their passion for sports.

David Ernst, Joey Greene, Ryan Peltier and Ben Thomas went to Our Lady of the Rosary school and shared with the students what it means to be a good teammate, as part of the seniors’ Capstone Project.

“Since I've played sports for such a long time I thought it'd be a good idea to share some of my skills with others or kids who never had the opportunity to play sports,” said Thomas.

Seniors looking to make a difference for kids and their parents this Christmas served as personal shopping helpers at the Life Enrichment Center earlier this month. The experience was part of Cheyenne Coyle, Shannon Murray, Cayley Saunders and Kierstin Saunders' Senior Capstone project.

"The surrounding Dayton area is what really interested me — I see child poverty in Dayton and wanted to learn more about it," Kierstin said.
