JVS students educate others on teen dating & domestic violence

Empty seat display in the front hallway at JVS, representing lives that were lost by domestic violence.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, and the junior students in the Lorain County JVS Early Childhood
Education program have made it their goal to educate others on this topic and share the resources that are available in our
community for individuals who find themselves in an unhealthy relationship.
“This entire project is student led,” shared Hilary Duffala, junior Early Childhood Education Instructor. “Every year my
students pick a community organization to work with for their FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of Amer-
ica) Chapter project. This year, the Genesis House was selected because there was a strong interest in teen dating violence
and spreading the message that there are so many teens that might be in a relationship that isn’t safe.”
As part of their project, the students put up an Empty Seat Display in the front school hallway. This display is a reminder
of the vacancies that are left when a life is cut short through teen dating and domestic violence. Each seat has a picture frame
on it that tells a true story of a young person who has been murdered by someone who was supposed to love them.
Kaitlynn Starcher, Early Childhood Education junior from Midview, likes to make a difference and shared how she
thought this project would do just that. “Some people aren’t in a good relationship and we wanted to try and change that. I
hope that our display gives people a voice and encourages them to reach out and get the help that they need.”
On Friday, February 7, the JVS community came together for a purple out jeans day. This fund-raiser was a way to show
support of this topic and help raise money for the Genesis House. Staff and students were asked for monetary donations to
wear a purple shirt and jeans to school.
Another fund-raiser the students organized and ran was a cupcake decorating event for their preschool students ages four
and five. The students, and their preschoolers, enjoyed a morning filled with frosting and sprinkles, decorating over 800
pre-sold cupcakes! The fund-raiser was made possible with the help of Pink Peppercorn Catering.
Along with bringing awareness to teen dating violence, the students raised $1,411 for the Genesis House from their two

been told many times by the general public that they think all realtors are the
same. People think we put a sign in their yard, put the house in the multiple

What if I told you Realtors are not all the same. Even my colleagues at
Howard Hanna all have different approaches to how they market and sell a
home. We each have a different tool box. Today I want to tell you about why

Jennifer Herron-Underwood represented us in the sale of our home of 18 years. She was highly recommended and we are pleased to say she did not disappoint.
Throughout the selling process, we were impressed with Jennifer’s knowledge of the real estate market as well as the resources available to aid in the selling process.
Her professionalism, honesty, and ability to communicate with us was extremely appreciated. We have to also mention her kindness and ability to interact with people...
