MTHS student honored for ingenuity


Miami Trace High School student, Emma Trimble, was honored for her ingenuity at the district’s Board of Education meeting on Monday.

Initially, Trimble reached out to Kylie Lanman, district operations & student services coordinator for Miami Trace, back in the spring to discuss her business proposal for feminine product dispensers in school bathrooms.

The project idea was originally for her English class, but because of Emma’s inquisitive nature and diligence, her proposal to supply feminine products to Miami Trace students came to fruition, according to district officials.

After local networking and researching, Lanman and Emma were connected to Lisa Arbogast, founder of the Promise Hill Project. Through Arbogast, the project generously donated a dispenser and one year’s worth of products.

“We are thankful to Emma and Mrs. Lanman for their work to implement this project,” said Superintendent Kim Pittser. “In addition, we are grateful for the support from Ms. Arbogast and her Promise Hill Project resources.”

The dispenser has been successfully installed to serve young women of Miami Trace High School.
