Proof Positivity: East Cleveland

Shaw High School in East Cleveland have big things under way. Mighty Marching Cardinals along with 4 other bands will be preforming during the Olympics in Beijing, China. I lived near East Cleveland and this is so big for those students. That region of Cleveland is gang infested and the color of your clothing is a big deal. If you are in the wrong colors bad things can happen. The area looks unkempt. Even when a team of people are sent out to clean up things the following day it goes back to normal. It’s not an easy neighborhood to live in. The kids that are going to Beijing I commend. 90% of the kids have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher and 99% will be going on to college. This story has more focus on their band director Mr. Wilson I wanted to shed more light on the kids.
