A Message from the Superintendent

As I drink my cup of coffee, this first morning as superintendent at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center, I reflect on how I have prepared for the position, the things about CVCC that make me proud, and what the future will bring.

First, what prepared me or more specifically an introduction. I was born in Northwest Ohio as one of five children. Participating in sports, working in residential construction, and learning from my family who have a lineage of employment in manufacturing shaped my childhood. I attained a Business Administration degree from Defiance College with the hopes of starting my own construction company. In my junior year of college, I met my wife-to-be and took a different career path, which led to teaching business courses in the Columbus area. I continued my education and received my Master of Education in educational administration from Ashland University. My wife Becky and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary this past July. I have two high school aged children, Luke and Autumn. I pursued administration to have a greater impact on a larger number of students. This year, as superintendent, I will be starting my 20th year in career technical education.

Second, I am so proud of the great history that is CVCC and look forward to helping shape its legacy. During the 2016-17 school year, CVCC sent 39 students to State and National competitions, inducted 34 students into the National Technical Honor Society (the highest academic honor bestowed upon career technical students), and was the recipient of the 2016 High Schools That Work Top Performing School in the Northeast Ohio Region. Also, this past June, the Adult Education School of Nursing Program graduated 39 students. On top of all these achievements, and many others I did not mention, 83 students participated in internships during the school year, preparing them for the world of work.

Lastly, where are we going? CVCC will focus on continuing quality instructional programs, engaging our communities, and being fiscally responsible. As we embark on a new school year, a strategic plan will be developed to direct our decisions and ensure we stay on track. Community, staff, and students will all provide valuable input into this plan as we all work together to continue making Cuyahoga Valley Career Center an invaluable educational institution.

I look forward to getting to know you and leading CVCC for many years to come.
