Solon Academic Boosters Recap
Posted on 15 September 2017
Last July we partnered with the Solon Academic Boosters to support the teachers and students back in our hometown of Solon, Ohio. In case you didn’t know, Solon has a strong tradition of academic excellence, demonstrated by the district being named the best in the country according to Niche.
Throughout the month we featured teachers from the district, sharing stories from their classrooms and advice they would give to students as they look to leave their mark on the world. We capped off the month by hosting an event at Glenwillow Grille that included a music by YXU’s own Tyler Elwing. Glenwillow Grille graciously donated 10% of its sales from the evening to the Solon Academic Boosters on YXU’s behalf. The event was a huge success, bringing the entire community together for an evening of great music and conversation.
Through the sales of YXU apparel throughout the month, we are proud to announce that YXU was able to invest more than $110 into teachers and students throughout the Solon Schools District. As former alumni, we are proud to support the community that helped built us and to live out our mission to build leaders and strengthen communities.
