Another week in and our students are diving into their lab programs. One of the great things about Ohio Hi-Point Career Center is the opportunity for students to becoming actively involved in their interests.
The Construction Trades students have set the foundation and will be setting the framework for the house they’re building in town. The IT students have produced campaign ads due to the political season and the health technology students, or STNA trainees, have begun their clinicals.
It should be no surprise that the Culinary students were given a cooking demonstration from funny-man chef, Jim MacLeod. MacLeod, a Chef Presenter from Sullivan University. MacLeod has been cooking for the Culinary students for eight years and always brings a sense of humor as he prepares and cooks the meal while talking to the students about career and college options.
On Wednesday, OHP Students said ‘thank you’ to the Sloan Foundation during a reception held to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Earl Sloan who created a Foundation to support career-technical training and education. The Sloan Foundation has been vital to OHP’s continuing standard of ensuring students have top-of-the-line equipment to use to help prepare them for career success.
Student speakers included Tori Enochs (Triad) and Kristine Faulkner (Graham) from Health Technology, Kelli Kendall (Urbana) and JoDawn Parisse (Graham) from Culinary Arts and Mike White (Kenton) and Colton Low (Bellefontaine) from Electronics Engineering.
Students were also reminded of the advantages of attending Ohio Hi-Point Career Center. Not only do students gain valuable on-the-job training, but they also have the opportunity to remain involved in their home schools. Spirit day was Friday and school colors were donned and jerseys and uniforms worn with pride.
An education at OHP allows students to be students, cheering for the home team and participating in athletics, extracurricular activities while gaining a “reality” education at Hi-Point, engaging in and participating in hands-on learning and becoming part of the career atmosphere.
We’re heading into Fall which means OHP is eager to showoff to the Sophomores in our District. If a student or parent has questions, we encourage you to contact us via phone 937.599.3010 or on our website or Facebook page.
