"Project Full Circle" has Youngstown School graduates mentoring others

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - An inspirational story out of Youngstown as three men return to their roots in an effort to inspire others.

It's called "Project Full Circle."

Keith Evans of Cleveland who works for the University of Phoenix, Terrell Jones who is serving in the U.S. Army and Chauncey Cook of Columbus, a former teacher now in the banking industry, all took the day off from work to visit students at Harding Elementary School.

The men are founders along with several others of "Project Full Circle, LLC" and stressed the importance of education and learning to the students while also encouraging them to not be afraid to dream big.

"We're all born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio and are now spread out throughout the country doing positive things. We wanted to come back and kind of share those things with students too, to let them know they can do something similar. They don't have to be us, but they can definitely share that passion of making a difference in someone's life," says Cook.

This is the second year for "Project Full Circle," last year the organization took children from Williamson Elementary on a field trip to a museum in Pittsburgh.
