Senior Recognition 2014

It was an honor for family, friends and EHOVE staff to celebrate with the 370 members of EHOVE Career Center’s Class of 2014 during Senior Recognition on May 23.  As the students acknowledged they’re beginning a new part of their journey in life and learning, they recognized and appreciated the head start they now have into their career or college education.

EMT/Firefighter student Nathan Zeck (Huron HS) was the class speaker at the first ceremony with Health Tech student Tiffany Horning (Norwalk HS) at the second.   Senior Recognition is split into two ceremonies to accommodate the large crowds who attend to support their students. 

“Each and every one of us has had a dream to be something in the world. Don’t stop at just the thought,” said Zeck.  “Celebrate this time, and understand its meaning.”

“I wish you the best on your journeys, and I challenge you to follow your passion, stay true to yourself, and always remember to follow your heart and ambitions,” said Horning. “We are the leaders of tomorrow.”

EHOVE Superintendent Sharon Mastroianni thanked the hundreds of parents in attendance for “lending” their children to EHOVE for the last two years. “It has been an honor to watch them grow and reach this pivotal point in their lives,” she said.  “You are the individuals who did so much good work before you sent these fine students to us, and we want you to know that, first and foremost, we appreciate all the work YOU have done to help your young adult reach this graduation day!”

After each student walked across the stage, received their career portfolios and enjoyed the highly anticipated Senior Music Video, they said their final goodbyes and reminisced outside the theater.

“We receive a lot of hands-on training, and I feel that’s the best way to learn,” said Computer Networking graduate Jon Shaw (New London HS) who will be attending Devry University to pursue a Network and Communications Management degree.  “The certifications you get at EHOVE are used nationwide, and the skills you get are exactly what employers are looking for.  I would recommend EHOVE due to their hands on training, college credits and great staff.” 

“EHOVE helped me choose my program career,” said Engineering Tech student Benjamin Daneker (Edison HS) who will be attending BGSU to pursue a degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering.  “The quality of EHOVE’s programs are great. I love the atmosphere, and I would recommend this school to anyone.”
