Moving on to the next step
EHOVE students, family, friends, partner school principals and superintendents, Post Secondary Partners, instructors, staff and the EHOVE Board of Education and Administration celebrated with graduates for EHOVE’S Career Center Senior Recognition Ceremony at the Sandusky State Theater on May 25.
With just about every single seat filled in the theater, it’s no wonder EHOVE choose to have two senior recognitions: 830 am and 11:00 am.
After the presentation of the Colors, Forensic Science student Haley Olds (Monroeville HS) sang a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem. EHOVE Superintendent Sharon Mastroianni and Principal Rod Smith welcomes the crowd and commended students and parents.
After each student received his or her career portfolio containing the validation of work performance, awards, certifications, resume, letters of verifications and recommendations, the crowd enjoyed the Senior Music Video. The video featured a compilation of images and videos of the students, plus a popular section of them performing and lip syncing to the popular *NSync song, “Bye Bye Bye”. Tears and laughter filled the theater with many proud graduates and parents as memories were displayed on a big screen of this past year at EHOVE.
Firefigher/EMT student Ashley Jett (Margaretta HS) felt great about today’s ceremony. “It went really well,” said Jett. “I am ready for the real world and EHOVE has helped me become prepared and ready to move forward.”
Students were not the only ones feeling proud. Jett’s mom, Linda, felt the ceremony went great. “I am so proud of my daughter Ashley,” said Linda Jett. “She’s following in her father’s foot steps who is a fire chef.”
“EHOVE is a great start and a great way for anyone to jumpstart their future,” said Jett’s father, Kerry. “EHOVE has great quality teachers and their technical fields.”
“The ceremony was great,” said Criminal Justice student Josh Langenfelder (Perkins HS), who will be attending college this fall for Natural Resources Law Enforcement. “It is finally hitting me we are moving on and going to college. I am going to miss my classmates and teachers.”
“I am so proud of Josh and all that he has accomplished at EHOVE,” said his father, Bob. “I would recommend EHOVE to anyone. It’s such a great place for youths to jumpstart their careers.”
“Today was awesome,” said Health Tech student Asha Pearson (Perkins HS), will be going to the University of Toledo and majoring in Health Care Administration. “I am super excited to move forward. EHOVE has well prepared me for my future.”
Some graduates plan to go to college, others to a career. Some will go back to EHOVE for further education. Wherever they choose to go, they are ready and excited. “I am going back to EHOVE for Paramedic and Fire Fighter Level Two,” said Jett.
Piper Wheeler (Norwalk) plans on entering the workforce for cosmetology and she also has some other big plans in mind. “I will be going to BGSU Firelands College for business,” said Wheeler. “Someday, I want to run my own salon.”
Graduates showed excitement and readiness to tackle their future and eager to fulfill their dreams and goals in life. Congratulations to the Class of 2012. A large number of photos of the ceremony are available at www.Facebook.com/EHOVEworks.
