The state graduation rate for Cincinnati's public high schools has gone up nearly 20% in the last decade. However, Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School's rate has dropped more than 16%.


Zachery Riggins, musician and business owner, is helping his alma mater, Cincinnati's Withrow High School, celebrate its 100th anniversary AND restore an arts curriculum long since abandoned. As he shares with our Elaine Diehl, the effort began in the spring with the Withrow Sounds Again! event.

Cincinnati Police have some leads to go on to try to find the person responsible for spray painting swastikas and racial slurs on Withrow University High School over the weekend.
