STAR 88.3 Gives Love in Greenville

Greenville, OH – She was told in the sixth grade that she would end up in a wheelchair, maybe not even make it to graduation. Most people would give up and stop trying. Not Asia Sykes. She graduated this year from Greenville High School, not only walking, but on the swim team, a cheerleader, and a lifeguard. She has a great GPA and already has college courses under her belt. The sky is the limit!

STAR 88.3 is Greenville and Darke County’s local Christian radio station at 88.9.

“Several times a year, we take nominations for something we call Give Love,” explains Naomi Cantrell, Community Representative for STAR 88.3. “This year’s graduates didn’t get the usual celebration, so we decided to find one we could surprise in a big way.

STAR 88.3 picked Asia Sykes to receive a surprise visit this week. She received a big basket of goodies from STAR 88.3, Anne’s Avon, Bread of Life Bookstore, and EUM Church.

“It was a blessing to see Asia so surprised and delighted,” Cantrell reflects. “It is definitely one of my favorite parts of what we do!”

STAR 88.3 is run by STAR Educational Media Network and based in Fort Wayne, IN, with signals around Northeast and East Central Indiana, Northwest and West Central Ohio, and Southern Michigan.

According to STAR’S President and CEO Melissa Montana, STAR “wants to build a deep connection with the local community, reaching out to churches, ministries, and Christian owned businesses to help make the area we’re serving an even better place to live.”

STAR Educational Media Network was formed in 2009 and has frequencies in Fort Wayne, Angola, Auburn, Kendallville, Richmond, Union City and Warsaw. Its mission is to provide uplifting and encouraging music that is safe for the whole family.
