(This is a guest blog post written by Cortney Hill, a senior in the Printing and Graphic Arts program at Ohio Hi-Point. Her home school is Upper Scioto Valley High School.)
My choice to become a student in Career-Technical Education (CTE) was the first step to shaping a successful future for myself. Without being here at Ohio Hi-Point I would have never realized my passion for Graphic Design and my need for higher education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Not only has CTE helped me to decide what career I want but had equip me with the skills and knowledge needed to be successful in my career. Although when I leave for college at the end of June knowing that in July I will have to start complete new with a new school and new faces, I know that it will make me a stronger person. I also will be having to relearn every design element and fine art that I have already and start new and learn all over again from the beginning. This will help me with technique and up my skill in the end.
Career-Technical Education has also taught me many leadership skills the SkillsUSA and that has made me realize just how important it is to be a leader and help me to keep a better attitude on the way things are out in the work field. SkillsUSA has taught me that community service is important and being a part of helping your community is mentally and emotionally rewarding. Wanting to be a part of that magical moment when you feel accomplished and proud for what you have done to help others is why I decided to be a lead ambassador stay active in community services project at Hi-Point and my home school. CTE has given me the opportunity to be a part of many community service projects.
Over the summer I was asked to attend Leadership camp for SkillsUSA and we painted 17 hours in Glouster Ohio in one day. Being a part of the lead ambassador team has given me the chance to give back and I helped raise money for the Logan County Humane Society.
One of the most exciting projects that I had the honor to be a part of at Hi-Point was the Logan County Glass Mural Project that we did in two weeks. The mural was about 15 by 5 feet and was composed entirely by the Printing and Graphics students and Augusto Bordelois out of broken and square shaped glass. We designed the idea for the mural and composed it at on off campus site and it was hung in downtown Bellefontaine in the effort to help brighten up the area. Being a part of any community service project is a great experience and CTE helped me realize that being a part of that is something I want to do for the rest of my life.
CTE has helped me shape my future my helping me to decide my career and college. Most importantly CTE has made me a better person and helped me realize that community service is an unbelievable amazing experience that I want to be a part of my future.
