A frequent contributor to The Huffington Post, Ann V. Klotz’s latest piece reflects on how she and her family made the decision to move from Manhattan to Northeast Ohio over ten years ago. Leaving the only life her two young daughters had known, welcoming her infant son into the world, running a summer theatre program in Pennsylvania and beginning her first year as Head of Laurel, Klotz felt as though she had perhaps bitten off more than she could chew. Read how her husband Seth encouraged her to “Keep on Chewing.”
Laurel Ninth Grader Morgan Goldstein showed her culinary skills once again. In late October, Morgan competed in the American Culinary Federation competition, which took place at the Columbus Culinary Institute. Twenty-five contestants were judged on skills, flavor and presentation.
The 14-year-old won the silver medal for her dish of Cornish game hen, ravioli and a side of rainbow chard with cut carrots and parsnips.

Laurel Senior Naomi Shapiro isn't a typical member of Laurel's cross country team. Naomi's Jewish faith requires that she not drive in motorized vehicles from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday evening. With many cross country meets taking place on Saturdays, Naomi and her family have discovered an unconventional way to get to meets.
While her teammates ride the bus to meets, Naomi and her parents find a hotel in the vicinity of each meet. They arrive to the hotel on Friday evening, walk to the meet venue on Saturday and then back to the hotel. At times Naomi and her parents have walked up to ten miles round-trip in addition to the distance she runs during each meet.
Recently Naomi sat down with Cleveland.com to discuss her story and they shadowed her for her final cross country meet as a Laurel student.
Read and watch more about Naomi’s remarkable story here.
