Earning a spot to compete at the national level is admirable, as it takes extensive preparation, skills practice and refinement and demonstrates a solid grasp of relevant career field knowledge.
EHOVE students have several reasons for participating in these student organizations and competitions — leadership opportunities, community service work, the chance to apply the career field skills they’ve learned and professional connections and opportunities.
In the Educators Rising nationals, teacher academy students Serena Frausto (Edison High School), Sam Basso (Vermilion), Rachel Wolery (Margaretta) and Tiffany Slagle (Edison) placed seventh in the category “Inside Our Schools, PBIS at EHOVE.”
Another teacher academy student, Aaron Graham (Western Reserve) placed in the category “impromptu lesson.” His placement hasn’t been announced yet.
Educators Rising is a free, national membership organization for aspiring teachers and their mentors.
In the Family, Careers and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) nationals, early childhood education student Mariah Skaggs (Edison) earned a bronze medal in the category “early childhood education.”
FCCLA is an association of family and consumer science students and and includes the culinary and early childhood education programs. It allows students to participate in competitive events, fundraisers, community service projects and social chapter activities.
In the SkillsUSA nationals, diesel tech student Devon Grosswiler (Danbury) took 19th place in that category.
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The Ohio chapter provides its 31,500-plus career-technical education members the opportunity to participate in local, regional, state and national competitive events, and encourages students to give back to the community through various community service activities.
Gallery of Believers being planned
In honor of EHOVE's 50th anniversary, the school has established the Gallery of Believers. It is a recognition area to honor former students, employees and community members who support high school and adult education students as they transition to the next step in their career plan.
Members of the Gallery of Believers will be recognized with an engraved plaque displayed in the entry way of the science and technology building. The gallery donations will support scholarships for EHOVE students who are pursuing post-secondary training, enrolling in an apprenticeship program or entering the military or workforce.
To join the Gallery of Believers for yourself or someone you wish to honor, complete the donation and honoree forms found at http://www.ehove.net/content/galleryphotos/Donation-Form.pdf. For more information, contact Susan at [email protected] or 419-499-4663 x244.
