Letter: Tri-Rivers an asset to all

Tri-Rivers is an asset to all communities

If it were not for Tri-Rivers Career Center, countless students would not realize their professional dreams, businesses would not be able to find skilled workers and the community would lose a valuable partner.

Tri-Rivers Career Center is truly a benefit to everyone in the community.

Having visited several times, I know that Tri-Rivers offers first-rate programs designed to give students an advantage in their career. I have walked the halls with U.S. Senator Rob Portman, who boasts about Tri-Rivers Career Center because he has seen the results and heard from business owners the importance of Tri-Rivers to the community.

I have heard from students who credit Tri-Rivers with introducing them to career paths they might not have known existed, paths that lead to success beyond their wildest expectations. I have talked to representatives from Honda who praise Tri-Rivers for offering the advanced technical training they need in future employees.

As one of the most outstanding career centers in Ohio, I urge every member of the community to vote for the levy this November so that Tri-Rivers can continue to be the community partner that helps meet local challenges and helps transform students into professionals..
