Brunswick Life
This issue of Brunswick Life is almost exclusively filled with articles from Brunswick students. They are among 30 to 35 students in grades six through 12 participating in the BEAT program. The independent, self-funded program is sponsored by RPM, Plum Creek Assisted Living Community, WOW! Cable and Internet, Allstate/Brenda States, and Lorain County Community College/University of Akron at Midpoint Campus.

"None of this would be possible without the support of the Brunswick City Schools, our sponsors over the last fourteen years and especially our BEAT students and their families. They've made the program the success that it has become," said program adviser John Wasylko, who also contributed much to this issue, tracking down pictures and articles.

I am grateful for the students' contributions and impressed by their work, but they didn't leave much room for me. The students came up with their own story ideas and delivered quality articles. This is their issue.

I encourage readers to visit TheBEAT22.com to read the longer versions of the students' articles, and watch them on Channel 22. Join me in congratulating them on a job well done.
