Graham High School of Business presents to Board of Education

The 'Daily Grind' Presentation

The Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Board of Education heard a presentation from two Graham High School of Business students, Ethan Neth and Connor Wylie, on the recently launched student-run coffee shop at Graham High School, The Daily Grind.

The senior High School of Business class began the business after surveying the student body to see if a coffee shop was wanted. In addition, the class then researched other student-run coffee shops around the state. Once the students created a business plan, they presented and earned approval from school administrators. The Daily Grind opened December 2, 2015 and operates Monday through Friday from 7:15-7:35 a.m. To date, the coffee shop has sold over 750 cups of coffee.

“As far as personal profits, our pay is our grades,” commented Conner Wylie, “If we show up on time, we earn points toward our grade in the class and if we show up late, points are docked. We’re operating a business, but customizing it within academic parameters. We aren’t in the business for the money, we are doing this for academics.”

While running the business, the students are also giving back to the community. For every ice coffee sold (the most popular drink amongst the student body) $.25 goes to Special Olympics Ohio, which is the organization that BPA works with throughout the year. The students also are using a certain percentage of the profits to support a scholarship fund for a graduating High School of Business student.

The Board of Education recognized Janessa Queen, an Allied Health & Nursing senior, from Bellefontaine High School, and Matt Burchett, a Diesel Technology senior, from Graham High School, as Students of the Month for March 2016.

Cameron Warner, representing Congressman Jim Jordan, spoke to the Board about the Federal Government’s new Every Student Will Succeed Act that changed from No Child Left Behind.

Two staff members will retire at the end of the school year. Vivian L. Brewer of West Mansfield will retire as the Guidance Secretary, and Carol J. Siebeneck of Lakeview will retire as a Paraprofessional.

Bethany Smith of Plain City was hired as the Marysville Satellite Manufacturing Instructor, Kurt Forrest of Galloway was hired as a Satellite CBI Instructor, and Carrie Draper of St. Paris was hired as the Assistant Satellite Technology Coordinator.

In other board action:

  • Approved the report of the Treasurer including the February 2016 Financial Statement; interest and investments; and appropriation increases and decreases
  • Accepted the resignations of Todd M. Skaggs, Wapakoneta, Social Studies Instructor, effective June 30, 2016, for personal reasons; and Michelle L. Swaney, High School Director, effective June 30, 2016, for the purpose of reassignment
  • Approved the out-of-state study trip attendance of Shalie Logan, Kenton Ag Instructor, to accompany approximately four students attending the Washington Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. in June; and Delaney Althauser, Kenton Ag Student, to attend the Washington Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. in July
  • Approved a one-time stipend for approved certified staff members and food service staff members working at the Indian Lake Innovation Camp, June 13-17, 2016.
  • Approved stipends for approved certified staff members for the creation of new academic courses for the 2016/17 school year, which will come out of the Carl D. Perkins Grant
  • Approved substitute bus driver pay to $14.00 per hour while driving, and $8.00 per hour while sitting, effective April 1, 2016
  • Approved new, revised, deleted and/or replaced policies
  • Approved teacher’s supplemental contracts and extended days for approved staff members

The next Board of Education meeting is set for Wednesday, April 27 at 7 p.m. in Room 102A in the high school building.
