Family and Consumer Science teacher Beth Schluep is currently in Vietnam with her husband. They have already visited the Mekong Delta region, a very rural region of the country, and is currently in Saigon. For details of the trip as it progresses, visit http://vietnamjourney.ohio.com/. On this site, a photojournalism KSU student is documenting the veterans’ journey for The Akron Beacon Journal. There is also a link to Mrs. Schluep’s blog on that website (which she hopes to update with more details soon).
Prior to the trip, many Roosevelt students worked with Mrs. Schluep to collect school supplies to use in rebuilding schools in Vietnam. Thanks to all first period classes who contributed to the school supply drive.
