Schools: Sports Gear Donated; Faculty Art Show

A Harborfields school district student was recognized recently by her school board for her work to collect and supply a team in Africa wih athletic equipment.

Oldfield Middle School student Olivia Rochlin collected 400 pounds of uniforms, cleats, shin guards, sock and other sports equipment for HELP International Uganda.

The district said that, after collecting the items, Olivia organized the collection with an inventory list and packed the items in suitcases weighing just under 50 pounds for transport.

“This is an extremely thoughtful undertaking that speaks volumes about your
character,” Director of Physical Education, Health and Athletics Robert Franco said regarding Olivia. “The time and commitment you have given to help others is everything we want our students to embody here in Harborfields.”
