On Friday, February 10th, Ms. Rhonda Crowder, a General Assignment Reporter from the Call & Post Newspaper, visited Noble Academy.
Ms. Crowder is no stranger to Concept Schools as she has attended school events and documented academic acheivements for the Horizon Science Academies in Cleveland. However, this was her first official visit to Noble Academy Cleveland. Noble’s administrative team was proud to share the history of Noble’s academic success with Ms. Crowder and give her a tour of the school.
During her visit, she met the 7th grade class and shared the history of the Call & Post with them. The Call Newspaper started in 1916 by local inventor Garrett Morgan and merged with the Cleveland Post in 1929 to become the Call & Post Newspaper. With the influence of editor & publisher W. O. Walker from 1932-1982, the Call & Post established itself as the most influential voice for African-Americans in Cleveland and ultimately Ohio. It earned praise as one of the finest African-American newspapers in the country.Ms. Crowder encouraged students to work hard and take their education very seriously. Students were eager to ask many questions about Ms. Crowder’s career as a reporter and journalist, and she was gracious to stay extra time and answer every question.
