Columbus charter school jumps-in to help 
victims of Guatemala Volcano relief effort

Columbus: The Columbus Bilingual Academy North, a public charter school, took the lead to gather supplies after a Guatemala volcano erupted in which 99 people have died and nearly two hundred are still missing. The eruption affected 1.7 million people in Guatemala. Nearly 12,000 have been evacuated. 
Everyone at the Columbus Bilingual Academy North moved hastily to receive donations of surgical masks, sanitation wipes and other medical supplies that will go directly to the people of Guatemala. Boxes quickly filled up the cafeteria of this public charter school.

"Our school is reaching out to our parents to start getting donations as well. That is the heart of this 
school. It's a community effort," said Paul Preston, 
Principal of this school.
"The Columbus Bilingual Academy North represents students from a number of South American countries. So, when the call came to help, our students, parents and our great school staff all jumped in to help."

Marianne Cooper, Executive Director of Richland Academy is the school's sponsor. She commented, "Nine years ago, the Columbus Bilingual Academy-North opened its doors in Columbus. We are pleased to be the Sponsor of this wonderful school with such strong leadership from the Governing Board, Accel Management - Dr. Chad Carr and the principal, Paul Preston.
