CAREER CONNECTIONS

As we look to your student's future, please take some time to explore a few of the videos shared by our Preble County Connections Director, Harold Niehaus. He is taking the opportunity to work with students K-12 in our county and to have them become aware, explore, and plan their career and future.


What is Career Connections?


The Career Path Less Taken

For quite some time, parents have held the belief that the best path for their children to take to ensure their future success is to attend college. Times have changed; however, and more than half of students who graduate with a college degree are not able to get a job using that degree. As such, many students are left with a great deal of student debt without the means to repay that debt. In fact, there is a great need for skilled labor in our country. Many of these jobs pay as well or better than those requiring a four-year degree. Before deciding whether or not to send your child to college, it is worth considering other options.

TWIN VALLEY SOUTH/MVCTC FFA MEMBERS ATTEND THE 94TH ANNUAL FFA CONVENTION AND EXPO

This year the Twin Valley South-MVCTC FFA Chapter had the opportunity to take a four-day trip to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. TVS was able to take 16 members and we traveled with Preble Shawnee. At convention members are able to see FFA in a whole new way and at a whole new level. We had the opportunity to attend 3 sessions and listen to inspirational speakers. We also toured Tuttle Family Orchards and the Indianapolis Zoo and got to learn about them as well. Not only was the trip very educational and inspirational, we were able to spend time with our friends, make new ones, see new things, go to the career show and expo and have a great time at the World’s Toughest Rodeo. We also celebrated member Sydney Flory on earning her American FFA Degree, something only ½ of 1% of all FFA members will ever achieve.

HOW TVS MS/HS TEACHERS ARE HELPING STUDENTS THROUGH 8TH PERIOD

Eighth Period is an integral part of the Tuesday and Thursday school days. It is an opportunity for students to get academic support or a quiet place for students to study.


The school launched its 8th Period afterschool program last year to help students to catch up in their classes and receive extra help. The program is open to ALL TVS students and is scheduled to run through the remainder of the school year. The administration has even worked with the athletic department to allow student athletes a chance to participate in 8th Period even if they afterschool sports practices. The ultimate goal is to get students to the end of the year successfully.


The program is from 2:35-3:25pm, with middle school students reporting to Mrs. Amanda Beneke's classroom and high school students to Mrs. Dianna Beneke's classroom. Students should bring missing or current homework assignments.


At the end of the session, students who are not walkers or car riders may ride the elementary bus routes home.
