On Friday, April 16, Navarre Elementary School held their annual Test Pep Rally in the school gym, as a kick-off to Ohio Achievement Assessment testing that began last week for students in grades three to six. TPS Assistant Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant hosted a challenge of “Are You Smarter Than a Specialist” in which a team of students took on the art, physical education and music specialists (pictured). Unlike last year, the specialists emerged victorious earning the school’s assistant principal a pie in the face.


Four Waite High School graduates were honored as Distinguished Alumni at the 46th Annual Purple and Gold Dinner celebration held April 17 at St. Michael Centre, Oregon.

The 2010 inductees included Romules L. Durant, class of 1994 (education and community service); Victor Kissoff, class of 1954 (business and community service); Michael D. Lorton, class of 1972 (medicine, law and community service); and Stanly R. Starkey, class of 1965 (business and community service).

Dr. Romulus L. Durant was born to Benjamin and Carolynne Durant on Dec. 11, 1975. He and his siblings became very involved in athletics, helping his parents, who coached at both Franklin and Birmingham elementary schools.

He played most of his little league football for the East Side Raiders, where he became known for wearing his jersey labeled “Hit Man.”
