 CALHOUN COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL
A TUITION-FREE PUBLIC SCHOOL ACADEMY
Calhoun Community High School
Someone once said, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” That certainly seems to be the case for Calhoun Community High School over the last couple of years. While there has been a change with the charter, a change with the management company, and a change to a new facility, the same great education has been offered throughout. Now there is going to be another change. Superintendent Tim Allard will be retiring in June and Dr. Rhonda Marcum will be taking his place. Mr. Allard has served
as director or superintendent since 2012 and will be ending a 31 year career in education. Dr. Marcum will be coming to CCHS from the Youth Challenge Acad- emy. Yes, it is yet another change for CCHS, but like always, a great education will be offered to any and all students who chose this gem of a high school right here in Battle Creek.
Charitable Union
BY TERESA ALLEN
Period Poverty – Did you know that one in four women in the US struggle to access period products during menstrua- tion? Additionally, 1 in 5 low-income wom- en struggle to leave their home during menstruation due to lack of product.
Charitable Union took on the dis- tribution of period products four years ago, after receiving a large donation of tampons. In less than six-weeks we had distributed 1,200 tampons, which made us look deeper into this issue.
Today Charitable Union provides products to women in need along with providing products to partnering school districts. We want to ensure that no one in our community must miss school or work due to their period!
How can you help? 1. Be an advocate for period poverty. 2. Encourage your work to make products available in all restrooms. 3. Host a product drive. 4. Support our program with a financial do- nation at www.CharitableUnion.org. Help that brings hope!
  GOOD LUCK!
WELCOME!
