As members of the community of Girard, we would like to do something in Officer Leo’s memory. At Brine’s Hometown Pharmacy, any customer who makes a donation between Nov. 1st and Nov. 30th can have their name displayed on a special 324 “window hanger” around the pharmacy. The number 324 was Officer Leo’s badge number. All funds raised, along with an additional donation from The Hometown Pharmacy, will be given to the Trumbull County Wolves Scholarship Fund in Officer Leo’s name.

In 2017, 700 students will attend Success By 6 in 19 different school districts in Mahoning County, Girard, Liberty, and Hubbard. They will go to 26 sites across the area. This is the largest class of Success By 6 students that the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley funded since it's inception in 2009.

The students will receive 64 hours of instruction from a licensed teacher. They will get ready to step foot into kindergarten well prepared both academically as well as socially and emotionally! Last year, students experienced a 14 point increase in the pre and post literacy test scores.


In 2009, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley started Success By 6. It's a pre-kindergarten readiness program geared toward children who need a boost before they officially start school. The students go through a four week summer program that prepares them for their academic careers but also focuses on their social/ emotional development. Success By 6 is offered in 19 school districts at 26 different sites across the Mahoning Valley. More than 3,000 students went through the program since 2009.
