Sen. Husted seeking career college applicants
Senator Jon Husted (R- Kett.) is seeking local high school seniors who are interested in pursuing higher education at one of Ohio’s 35 participating career colleges.
The 2008-2009 Legislative Scholarship program sponsored by the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools, offers over 180 scholarships opportunities worth more than $500,000 to graduating Ohio high school seniors working to obtain a job in an Ohio business or industry. The available scholarships would cover one-half tuition, or specific amounts that would be used toward the completion of a certificate, diploma or associate degree.
Any student wishing to apply must complete the Legislative Nomination form and obtain the signature of a member of the Ohio House of Representatives or Ohio Senate. Senator Husted encourages all interested high school seniors to apply.
“I fully support the Legislative Scholarship Program because it provides high school seniors with an opportunity to pursue a quality, affordable higher education”.
For a complete list of approved schools and additional application materials, including the Legislative Nomination Form, please visit www.ohiocareercolleges.org.
If you have any additional questions, or are interested in obtaining Senator Husted’s nomination, please contact his office at (614) 466-4538 or via e-mail at SD06@senate.state.oh.us. The scholarship application deadline is April 1, 2009.
Hosts sought for meetings
The Oakwood Board of Education is committed to staying in touch with our citizens. As part of that goal, the school district holds two neighborhood meetings per month. The main purpose of the meeting is to engage in conversation about our schools with our community members. Neighborhood meetings are a unique chance for residents to meet in a comfortable setting with Dr. Mary Jo Scalzo, Superintendent of the Oakwood Schools, and board members. Dr.
Scalzo usually asks one question for community input, but the focus of the rest of the meeting is an open discussion about our schools. We are looking for Oakwood citizens to host neighborhood meetings in their homes. There is minimal work involved.
Your task is to invite your friends and neighbors to attend the meeting and put out a plate of cookies. We do the rest! The available meeting dates and times follow. If you are interested in one of these dates, please contact Sandy Maresh at the Oakwood Board of Education Office (937) 297-5332.
