Spotlight on Quakers

Russian Students

On Tuesday, May 5, 12 Franklin Russian students attend the Russian-Speaking Youth Leadership Conference.  Some had worked many afternoons, with Cleveland students, preparing a skit for the contest.  Their hard work paid off, and they won, not only with accolades, but also a check for $125! 

 Additionally, we had two wins in the art contest--Anya Velikoretskikh brought in 2nd place, and Dima Velikoretskikh took 3rd.  

Anya had won 1st place in the art contest the previous two years.
