During a regular meeting Tuesday, the Ohio Hi-Point Board of Education celebrated Sharon Maurice, Supply Chain Management satellite instructor at Urbana High School, who was a national finalist for Outstanding New CTE Teacher of the Year by the Association of Career Technical Education.
After receiving Ohio’s Outstanding New CTE Teacher of the Year, Maurice, along with five others across the nation, traveled to Atlanta for the ACTE national convention where she was recognized.
The board also acknowledged 40 OHP FFA satellite students at Graham High School for receiving the Greenhand FFA degree and recognition at the National FFA Convention as a finalist team in the National Chapter Award — student development division. Elizabeth Hayes was the National Proficiency winner in equine entrepreneurship.
Information Technology students on the main campus designed flyers to market the Louie Vito Rail Jam at Mad River Mountain. Professional Turf and Landscaping students placed third in a Landscapers Challenge as part of the Cents 2013 expo in Columbus.
Adult Education is moving forward with a service agreement with Clark State Community College. A full transition is planned for June as Hi-Point’s remaining programs will roll over to Clark State and the college will become the fiscal agent for workforce development programs on the main campus.
The board also approved the resignation of Lee Ann Brown for the purpose of other employment, and accepted new courses and textbooks.
Prior to the regular session, the board reorganized with Anne Reames and Bill Ramsey re-elected as president and vice president, respectively. Warren Stevens was reappointed as the Ohio School Boards Association legislative liaison and Nancy Osborn was sworn-in as the Upper Scioto Valley board representative.
