Ron Clark, who became known as “American Educator” due to his work with disadvantaged youths both in rural North Carolina and inner-city Harlem, has devoted the majority of his time for the past year to opening a school in Atlanta for students from low-wealth areas.

Naturalite Skylight Systems and W. S. Nielsen Company joined companies around the country in donating resources to the new school.  Naturalite donated the pyramid skylights and W.S. Nielsen Company donated the labor to install the skylights.  In addition, Michael Nielsen is involved in hosting fund raising events for this noble cause to improve the quality of life for less fortunate youths in our community.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Franchesca Chiera and I love to skate. Most people would not think of a Florida girl being an accomplished figure skater, but my older brothers played ice hockey and I ended up on the ice at 2 ½ years of age taking lessons. My skating has improved each year and last year I won a gold medal at the South Atlantic Regional’s. This qualified me to go to U.S. Figure Skating’s Junior Nationals where I won a silver medal in the Juvenile division! At 12 years old, I was the first person from South Florida to ever medal at a National Competition. Needless to say, I really love being on the ice. A normal day for me begins at 4:30 in the morning when most kids are still asleep. My day is a bit different as I am on the ice at 5:30 and usually skate for two hours before I go to school. My middle school is directly across the street from the ice rink, so during the school year, it makes it easier to just walk across the street and lace up my skates for another two hours of training after school. This year, I am already signed up for 7 competitions. I am now skating at the Intermediate level and just returned from the Liberty Open in Pennsylvania where I won 4 Gold medals and had the highest scores against 114 other skaters. (See attached article) I am currently ranked number one in my region and number three in the United States on In an effort to help raise money for this year’s skating season, I am hoping that you will help root me on by joining TEAM FRANCHESCA. Below please find some options on how you can buy a Team Franchesca Tee Shirt, an autographed photo, or a Jacket. When you sign up to be part of my TEAM, your name will also appear on my website! Thanks for all of your support and for helping me reach my dream of someday getting to the Olympics. For updates on my progress, be sure to visit Franchesca’s Diary as I will be giving updates from each competition. Well, I have got to get back to the ice rink for another lesson, THANKS AGAIN!

Love, Franchesca
