The Backpack Fund is partnering with the Riverside community to support students across the District.

The Backpack Fund is a charity created by four 2018 Riverside High School graduates to ensure Riverside students have access to school supplies and scholarships.

The Backpack Fund is currently accepting donations that go toward school supplies for children in need and scholarships for students.

They have also established The Emily Ringler Memorial Scholarship, which is in honor of the late Emily Ringler, a 2017 Riverside High School graduate, and a beloved daughter, sister and friend.

All 2020 graduates who are attending a 2 or 4-year college during the fall of 2020 semester are eligible to receive the scholarship. The deadline for submission of the scholarship application is August 14.

For more information on how to donate, or apply for the scholarship, please visit www.thebackpackfundohio.com.

It wasn’t how students at Riverside High School planned to graduate, or even say goodbye, but it’s a lesson in life about how things can change in the blink of an eye.

Only 3 days left. It gets taken down September 12. This tribute to those lost on 9/11 is a labor of love and would love for you to drive by and reflect and most of all. Never Forget Willowick Ohio
I have a bit of bad news to share. Many of you might not know, but Jeff Fetzer (class of '98) has been battling cancer for just shy of 2 years. Yesterday afternoon he passed away peacefully in Virginia. He leaves behind a wife and 2 small boys. There will be a memorial service in VA on August 17th, and is one scheduled in Painesville for August 24th. Jeff's parents and sister have been in VA all weekend and are overwhelmed, so please respect their privacy for a few days before reaching out.
From an article featuring Riverside Graduate, Col. Rick Adams. "I feel fortunate to have served during Desert Shield/Storm (Saudi Arabia/Iraq), SFOR (Balkans), Operation Iraqi Freedom (Iraq) and Operation Enduring Freedom (Kuwait, UAE, Saudi, Qatar, Bahrain, Afghanistan, multiple Navy ships in Persian Gulf). It was a unique honor to command in combat zones at the company, battalion and brigade level." Col. Adams. May this hero Rest in Peace.
