The Ohio Hi-Point Career Center’s students and staff had an opportunity to thank a vital supporter of the career center, The Sloan Foundation, during a celebration for the late Dr. Earl Sloan.
The annual event, which was held in the Sloan Inn on Wednesday afternoon, was attended by Sloan Trustees to hear students talk about preparing for career success with the equipment provided by the Sloan Foundation.
Student speakers included Jordan Erevia (Multimedia Marketing, Benjamin Logan), Jordan Craig (Professional Turf and Landscaping, Benjamin Logan) and Dixon Shapiro (Electronics Engineering, Marysville).
Printing and Graphics students Zack Prater (Benjamin Logan) and Kayla Snyder (Marysville) showcased an augmented reality presentation to the trustees while Multimedia Marketing students Jordan Erevia and Andrew Felty (Benjamin Logan) produced a video showcasing multiple labs with advanced technology made possible by the Sloan Foundation.
Special guest, Ted Bunn, Managing Director at Atlantic Trust, spoke to staff and students saying, “Students allow the legacy of Dr. Earl Sloan to continue. They are the inspiration face to the work we do when we hear and watch students work with robots, programming and cutting-edge technology to have a leg-up in the workforce.”
The support of the Trustees has pushed Ohio Hi-Point to the front lines of advanced technology; providing robots, programming, medical equipment, digital technology and much more to students who attend Ohio Hi-Point from 14 partner schools.
Dr. Earl Sloan, in his Last Will and Testament, established the Sloan Foundation in 1920. Sloan listed the Trustees to establish and maintain a school for teaching trade education to students in Logan County.
To date, the Sloan Foundation has given over seven million dollars to benefit students in Logan County.
