Governor John Kasich’s “State of the State” excerpt

February 24, 2014 – Medina, OH

“…You know, I’ve traveled the state and I’ve visited our schools.  Some of the most advanced training I’ve seen anywhere are in our career centers…Why did we not understand its value?…We must have a system that allows you in the 21st century, in the global marketplace, to consistently upgrade your skills so that you are in control of your own destiny and one day you won’t wake up and find out you don’t have the skills to compete and win.  And that is our philosophy.  It’s not K or pre-K through J–Job–it’s going to be all the way through your lifetime.  And this is the strategy that I believe we need to take.”

ARIEL CORPORATION DONATES $1 MILLION TO CNC PROGRAM

On Friday, January 31, it was announced that the $1 million donation will be used to renovate and refurbish the Computer Numerical Control Manufacturing Lab for the high school and adult education programs.  According to Karen Buchwald Wright, president and CEO of Ariel Corporation, “Manufacturing is actually experiencing a renaissance as a result of cheap, plentiful and domestic oil and gas and America’s skilled labor force.”  CNC Instructor Dave McGough is thrilled to bring the lab up to current standards and plans to add robotics and water jet cutting to the curriculum.  Governor John Kasich and numerous special guests were on hand to applaud this incredible partnership with Ariel and our community.
