35 Youngstown students get bikes for grade improvements

YOUNGSTOWN

As the 2013-14 school year rolled along, 15-year-old Ray Dees’ grades climbed from C’s in math and world history to A’s.

As a result, he found himself rolling along – on a new 24-inch mountain bike.

“It feels great,” the Liberty High School student said after taking home the sporty bicycle.

Ray was among the estimated 35 elementary-, middle- and high-school students who were given bicycles of many sizes, colors and designs Wednesday at the Boys & Girls Club of Youngstown, 2105 Oak Hill Ave., on the South Side.

The youngsters were awarded for having improved their grades in at least two academic subjects, attending schoolwork sessions at the club a minimum of three days a week and turning in their report cards to the club on time. All are in the club’s Grade to Greatness academic program, noted Ruthie King, executive director.
