Recently Joseph Rizzuto, a John Glenn graduate class of 2011, visited James H. Boyd to present the students with a medical mission he went on to Nepal. Previously, the student council of Boyd raised funds to assist him in completing his mission. As a result of their fundraising, Mr. Rizzuto was able to provide much-needed supplies and health checks to the community of Gorkha, Nepal. Joseph returned to his past elementary school to share his experience with the students that helped his mission become a reality.

The inhabitants of the community of Gorkha were affected harshly by an earthquake in 2015 and are still trying to rebuild their homes. Mr. Rizzuto’s presentation was an eye-opening experience for students, and they were affected by seeing the plights of people living in another country who don’t have access to the resources that Americans do.
