Project SEARCH Instructor Nick Vrettos spoke about the challenging school year and how community partners stepped up to help the students experience meaningful internships. The program has been hosted at Otterbein Lebanon for a number of years, but was unable to accommodate the students for the 2020-21 school year due to Covid-19 restrictions on senior living facilities. Spearheaded by Judge Tim Tepe, the Warren County Government Center offered to host the program and also helped find other job rotations for the students with the Humane Association and Donovan Elementary School. “They welcomed us as team members,” Mr. Vrettos said. “They had high expectations for our students and cheered them along every step of the way.”
