Jarod Perry-Richardson

Community Researcher

Fourteen year-old Jarod Perry-Richardson was also born and raised in East Cleveland. He is an Honor Roll student at the Cleveland School of the Arts where he majors in visual art. For the second year in a row Jarod is joining other students in participating in Cleveland's Mural My Neighborhood program. In the program, middle and high school students train under an accomplished artist mentor beginning in the spring. The students spend summer drawing and painting a large and beautiful mural on the side of building, and are paid a stipend for their efforts. At this time Jarod is considering a career as an electrical engineer. But, he says, considering his age, this plan can always change.
