EDDY legacy valued

In many cases, results are measured on level of performance. This includes working at a job or taking a test, and that is certainly the case for the Child Welfare Club’s EDDY Test.

For over 50 years, the organization has hosted the annual event for students from Ironton Middle and St. Lawrence.

That was once again the case this week when 30 students from those two schools participated in taking the test.

Ultimately, the goal of this test is to encourage these and other children to give their best at all times when it relates to education and strive to achieve excellence.

Being a part of this test will be something that those who take and pass the EDDY Test can talk about for years to come.

We commend the Child Welfare Club for putting on this event and enduring through the years with this test and all it fosters in relation to education for our young people.

Simply put, when a student gets enthusiastic about taking a test, it is special and the EDDY Test personifies that.

This has been a part of the community’s past, but hope it will be a part of the future for many years to come.
