Junior’s Research On Display
Junior Brady Kaucic, of Chardon, is one of five northeast Ohio students whose research, completed as part The Cleveland Clinic Office of Civic Education Initiatives Summer Internship Program, was on display at the Great Lakes Science Center (GLSC) Sept. 28 through Oct. 1, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The display is part of GLSC’s BioMedTech: Students Translating and Exploring Medicine (BMT: STEM) Speaker Series. In recognition of National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, Great Lakes Science Center will present information on childhood obesity. Guests can learn about food choices and portions, lifestyle choices and how to help children maintain a healthy weight in order to prevent diabetes, obesity and heart disease.
“I feel very blessed to be given the opportunity to share my research at such a prestigious place, The Great Lakes Science Center,” said Brady. “Most of all, I hope my findings will provide knowledgeable insights to the greater community and contribute to the prevention of the widespread problem of pediatric obesity.”
Brady was at the Great Lakes Science Center on Saturday to discuss her project: Outcomes for a Multidisciplinary Tertiary Care Pediatric Obesity Clinic: The Pediatric Preventative Cardiology and Metabolic Clinic. Her poster remained up in the BioMedTech STEM gallery through the Evening for Educator’s event on Oct. 1.
Fifteen NDCL students have been selected to participate in the Clinic’s program over the last three years. The intensive, paid internships provide top students throughout northeastern Ohio with the opportunity to work and learn alongside nationally renowned healthcare professionals in a variety of fields.
Host An International Student
Last summer, NDCL partnered with Green Planet Homestay to increase global awareness within the school community by extending NDCL’s presence to talented high school students throughout Asia.
Green Planet will identify, select and support host families for international students. Green Planet will also provide a range of support services for these students, including English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring as needed.
Other than the mutual benefits of forming a lasting friendship with an international student and making a positive impact on his or her life, participating families also receive a monthly stipend of $800 from Green Planet for the length of the student’s stay.
If anyone is interested in becoming a host family, please fill out Green Planet’s Host Inquiry Form. If one is not interested in hosting, but knows someone who might be, refer a host family and earn a $150 referral bonus from Green Planet when the family is approved to host a student. Just share the Host Inquiry Form link and make sure the family provide its referral source.
For more information, contact Green Planet directly by email or by calling 781-996-0429.
NDCL Hosts Admissions Events
Michael Suso, NDCL’s director of admissions, encourages all prospective families to come out to campus this fall.
The shadowing program began last week. Each year, nearly 500 prospective students visit campus. Interested students can schedule an individual shadow day online.
The first open house for prospective students and their families is scheduled for Oct. 10, from 6-8 p.m.
NDCL will also host its first personal tour evening on Oct. 29. It is a more personal opportunity to learn about the NDCL experience in conversation with Mr. Suso, parent ambassadors, students and administrators. Additional evenings are scheduled in November and December. Families can register for the date of their choice online.
Placement/scholarship exams for eighth-graders will be administered on Oct. 19 and Nov. 9. For more information or to register, visit ndcl.org.

Light Up The Night For SPEA
NDCL’s Social Justice Club is looking for people to join its team for the Suicide Prevention Education Alliance’s 10th annual Into the Light walk on Oct. 6 at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
The 1.5-mile walk is from 6-8:30 p.m. The walk aims to raise awareness and money to prevent teen suicide and “shine the light” on depression.
Last year, NDCL’s team had 40 walkers and raised nearly $2,000, finishing in third place in funds raised. The goal for 2013 is to surpass last year’s total and make it to number one.
Students, faculty, parents and alumni are invited to join Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin’s team. Register online by clicking “Join this Team.” Donations are also welcome from those unable to participate in the walk.
