More than 250 area community and business leaders recently attended the annual "Community Appreciation Breakfast" hosted by Owens Community College President Christa Adams, Ph.D., on the College's Toledo-area Campus. President Adams also hosted a breakfast for area community and businesses leaders for their service and commitment to the Owens Findlay Campus.
The two Community Appreciation Breakfasts recognize the commitment of hundreds of local people serving on the advisory boards for academic programs at the College, as well as local and state legislators and educators. Among those attending the breakfast included U.S. Representative Paul Gillmor, State Senator Randy Gardner and State Representatives Rex Damschroder and Lynn Olman.
"These people are to be congratulated for their commitment to the education of our students," President Adams said. "Their efforts ensure that our curriculum focuses on the future - ensuring Owens students can take their classroom learning right out into the workplace to make a valuable contribution to our community."
The advisory board members assist faculty, staff and administration at the College in evaluating the academic programs, planning for facilities and equipment, and meeting needs of area business and industry with high-tech instruction for Owens students.
President Adams presented a video highlighting the accomplishments of the College during the last year.
"As the fastest-growing community college within our classification in the nation, we appreciate the support of the community as we continue to offer new high quality programs and services to more and more people in Northwest Ohio and across the state," President Adams said.
On the Toledo-area and Findlay campuses, Owens serves more than 36,000 credit and non-credit students. Owens is committed to providing small classes, personal attention and the lowest tuition in Northwest Ohio. Owens Community College offers over 100 career-oriented programs and majors in Agriculture, Business, Health, Public Service, Skilled Trades, Industrial and Engineering Technologies. Owens students also can earn the first two years of a bachelor's degree with a smooth transfer to any area four-year college or university.
