YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) - Students and teachers at Chaney High School just got a special lesson from a best-selling author on Thursday.
Erin Gruwell came to speak Thursday morning.
Gruwell took 150 "at-risk" teens in California and made sure everyone graduated.
You may know them as the "Freedom Writers."
Now, she came to work with students and teachers here.
"We're trying to bring light to really dark places, and these students are the future. The fact they've read the book, to have this experience means the world to me," Gruwell said.
Gruwell is working with teachers and staff in a district-wide professional development day before she'll work with juniors and seniors at the high school.
