Superintendent, Greene County Career CenterSince arriving at the Greene County Career Center, I have been extremely proud of our students who are excited to learn, goal oriented and who are driven to success. I have observed career technical and academic teachers who go out of their way to assist the students as they strive to achieve their educational and occupational dreams. I am also very impressed by the opportunities afforded to our students in terms of college credits, scholarships and industry certifications. There is no doubt that Career and Technical Education in Ohio is an exciting “hands on” opportunity for students! With advancing technology in our country, it is so important to identify our regional job markets and we also work hard to predict the future jobs for our students, many of which are not yet identified. As the Career Center for Greene county, we feel a strong obligation to prepare students to immediately step into jobs in our area workforce, but we are also preparing them and afford them college credits and the academic preparation needed to continue their educational pursuits as well. Since 1967 the Greene County Career Center has played an important role in providing technical and academic instruction to many generations and we must continually strive to become a “State of the Art” Career and Technical Center in our region.
As your career center superintendent, please know that my number one goal is to individually assist each of our students, no matter what college or career pathway they choose to achieve their goals and dreams in a safe learning environment. In talking with many of our students, they find the Career Center experience to be a rewarding, enjoyable and exciting opportunity for hands-on learning. Many of them advise me that they enjoy coming to school here and feel cared for and supported by staff! I would encourage you to stop out and visit us or to contact us with any questions regarding the outstanding programs and services being provided by the Greene County Career Center. If you get the chance, check out the “I AM CT” video on the Ohio Department of Education website (see link below), believe me, you do not want to miss it.
