55 CTC Students Get "Keys to the County"
Alicia Rittenhouse

Keys to the County was designed to give students an inside look at leadership, organizations, and resources in Springfield and Clark County.

Students were nominated and selected by CTC instructors, teachers, and staff for their leadership at school.

The day started out at Clark State's Brinkman Educational Center in downtown Springfield where Steven Massey laid out the plans for the day. 

Students discussed career opportunities with a panel of local professionals:

  • Dr. Alex Horne - Bachelor Degree Web Design and Development
  • Scott Dawson - Graphic Design and New Media
  • Corey Willinger - Computer Software Development
  • Breion Hawkins - Diversity Coordinator

After a quick walk to Springfield City Hall students discussed vaping, the dangers of vaping, and options for support in quitting with Leah Behler from Clark County Combined Health District. 

Next, students heard from Judge Lancaster from Juvenile Court and Probation Officer Lezlie Barron about the court system, trends amongst high school students, and available community resources.

The day wrapped up with lunch at COhatch and a presentation of certificates.

Big thank you to Stephen Massey from citiLookout for assisting with bringing this program to CTC!
