Valued Business, Community Partners Thanked
Each month, Warren County Career Center instructors, coordinators and other staff recognize and thank a valued business or community partner for their support. Once per quarter, a luncheon is catered by WCCC Culinary students in their honor.
Laura Urban, Human Resources Generalist with Premier Physician Network, is the WCCC September 2018 Valued Business Partner. She was nominated by Adult Medical Programs Coordinator Teresa Orloff for her support of the programs. “Laura set up interviews for all my Medical Assistants with various office managers and all were hired for their externship,” Dr. Orloff said.
The WCCC October 2018 Valued Community Partner is LINK Animal Rescue in Lebanon. “LINK Animal Rescue gives our students the opportunity to foster cats within our classroom to help get them adopted out,” Veterinary Science Instructor Maegan Peloe said in her nomination. “LINK Animal Rescue piloted this set-up with our program and this is the second year we have been working as a partnership. It has been very successful so far! Our students have enjoyed it immensely (who wouldn't want to come to class and play with kittens!?) and we have helped LINK adopt out over 20 cats. LINK gives us the opportunity to keep cats and kittens in our classroom year round for students to care for, socialize and help transition into homes.”
Barb Russell, owner of Cincy Clips, is the November 2018 Valued Business Partner for her work with the WCCC high school and adult Cosmetology programs. “She and her team work hard to provide haircut classes for our high school and adult students,” Adult Cosmetology Coordinator/Instructor Tiana Payne said in her nomination. “She serves on our advisory board and offers state board updates, marketing strategies, scholarships, prizes, contests and more. Barb also helps with mock interviews to prepare our students to exit. She opened the doors to several of her locations for students to job shadow and get a closer look at what the industry has to offer. She has done so much for us in the past two years. We are really thankful to have her support.”
