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.”

Ted Bunn, Managing Director at Atlantic Trust, said students were "the inspiration face behind the work we do."

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.

Ohio Hi-Point honors class of 2013 at convocation ceremony

BELLEFONTAINE- The Ohio Hi-Point Career Center honored 242 high school seniors during the annual convocation ceremonies Wednesday evening.

The ceremony, which celebrates students who completed the career-technical programs from OHP’s 14 partner school districts, was held at the Bellefontaine campus just below Campbell Hill.

“Dream big,” remarked Superintendent Jeff Price, “write down your goals, verbalize your action plan, have a dedication to that dream, and whatever you aspire to be will come to pass.”

The ceremony was led by OHP’s students of the month. Audrey Foster (Animal Management) from Mechanicsburg High School, and Michael White (Electronics Engineering) from Kenton High School conducted the ceremony with the introduction of guests.

The student speakers for convocation were David (DJ) Patterson (Health Technology) from West Liberty-Salem High School; Jo’Dawn Parisse (Culinary Arts) from Graham High School; and Colton Low (Electronics Engineering) from Bellefontaine High School.

Low addressed the crowd in his speech saying, “We have all the skills and opportunities to make a difference in this world. With hard work and the application of the knowledge we’ve gained at Hi-Point, we will be successful.”

Superintendent Jeff Price; Shelly Swaney, high school director; and Lynda Arehart and Lynne Hall, guidance counselors, also spoke during the ceremony. Lou Vito, president of WPKO/WBLL in Bellefontaine, announced the names of each student to receive senior certificates from career-technical instructors.

Audrey Foster, an Animal Management student from Mechanicsburg High School, received the Best of Class Award, graduating with a 4.0 GPA.

The night held numerous inspiring moments, but none as powerful as a standing ovation for the graduating students who will be entering the military.
