Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools and Eastland Career Center proudly served as the host to the Career Technical Education Superintendent’s Roundtable discussion, held by Lt. Governor Jon Husted. The event was held on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, and is part of the lieutenant governor’s week-long Next Generation Jobs Tour that spans the State of Ohio.
Eastland-Fairfield Superintendent/CEO Dr. Kimberly Pietsch Miller joined Lt. Governor Husted in welcoming an additional 10 superintendents or administrative leaders from career-technical organizations across Central Ohio. The roundtable discussion began with highlighting some of the recent successes and challenges for career-technical education (CTE) and their organizations, with increases in enrollment showing as a dominant trait. Other topics of discussion included the progress of the Innovative Workforce Incentive Program and the status of College Credit Plus (CCP) courses. At the center of all topics discussed were the students - adult, high school, and K-8 - and the opportunities that CTE can provide for an evolving world.
The roundtable, hosted at the Engineering Technologies Center on the Eastland Career Center campus, lasted more than one hour before the lieutenant governor’s next endeavor.
Eastland-Fairfield has now been chosen to host Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted twice in the last nine months. On January 11, 2022, nearly eight months prior to the day, Eastland-Fairfield hosted Lt. Governor Husted and the State of Ohio Workforce Transformation Board for a discussion of current affairs and then provided a tour of the newly opened Engineering Technologies Center for select attendees.
