Mayfield Provides Tutoring, Mentoring for Local School
Published April 2008
The Mayfield Clinic has launched a new community outreach partnership with South Avondale School, an academic institution within Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS).
The partnership was established through the Partners in Education program of the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, which seeks to reduce dropout rates in CPS while helping every youth in Cincinnati realize his or her potential.
With a nod to the school’s “Tiger” mascot, Mayfield named its new partnership Tiger PAWS (Partners at Work and School).
Mayfield will the assist the school with tutoring, mentoring, aptitude test preparation, fund-raising and beautification. South Avondale enrolls 363 students in grades pre-K through 8.
Fifty-two individuals—more than a quarter of all Mayfield employees—have signed up to participate in Tiger PAWS activities.
“The Mayfield Clinic is proud to launch this effort for the benefit of schoolchildren in our community,” says Ronald Warnick, MD, professor of neurosurgery at UC and chairman of the Mayfield Clinic.
“We hope that through this partnership we will be able to provide academic assistance and new opportunities to the children at South Avondale School.”
The Mayfield Clinic supports the United Way and Fine Arts Fund as well as numerous non-profit organizations, agencies and fund-raisers. The clinic includes 20 neurosurgeons and annually treats 20,000 patients from 35 states and a dozen countries.
