Board members, administrators honored at Ohio Hi-Point All-Boards Banquet

Ohio Hi-Point Career Center welcomed over 50 school administrators on a snowy Wednesday evening during the district’s annual All-Boards Banquet. The event honored superintendents, treasurers, and board members of OHP’s 16 partner school districts and educational service centers.

The Ohio Hi-Point Culinary Arts students prepared and served dinner.

Dr. Jeff Price, superintendent at Ohio Hi-Point, welcomed the group and explained the night was to “celebrate and thank board members for all they do to improve student education by always going the extra mile.”

He continued saying, “It takes a special person to be a board member. They constantly gather knowledge, through numerous meetings and attend school activities, to make the best possible decision for the students.”

Dr. Jo Blondin, Clark State Community College president, speaks to board members and administrators about the growing success of community colleges and the opportunities for partnerships with high schools through the College Credit Plus Program.

The keynote speaker was Dr. Jo Alice Blondin, president of Clark State Community College. Blondin spoke about the progress the college has made in her two years as president to increase opportunities and pathways for students.

“Clark State’s main goal is to provide the best academics and resources for our students,” said Blondin, “We’ve seen an increase in online enrollment by 11 percent and a 44 percent increase in College Credit Plus students.”

She called to administrators saying, “Clark State, or any community college, provides high- quality education at an affordable rate and we need to start getting the word out to our communities about the available education options.”

Blondin also invited school districts to partner with Clark State Community College on the College Credit Plus program. “We will work with school districts to align curriculums to meet the College Credit Plus guidelines so students earn high school and college credit.”

The College Credit Plus program replaced Ohio’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Option program and was signed into law in 2014 by Governor Kasich.

Blondin ended her speech thanking board members and administrators for working to create a better education for students.

Ohio Hi-Point Career Center partners with school districts in five counties, including Bellefontaine, Benjamin Logan, Graham, Indian Lake, Kenton, Marysville, Mechanicsburg, Ridgemont, Riverside, Triad, Upper Scioto Valley, Urbana, Waynesfield-Goshen and West-Liberty Salem.
