JVS Adult Career Center Graduates Receive Recognition

Female family members helps graduate put her cap on

The Lorain County JVS Adult Career Center held its Graduation and Recognition Ceremony on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, with 119 students, receiving career-technical certificates in their respective fields, and some their high school diplomas too.

The JVS Adult Career Center completed its second year of providing The Adult Diploma Program, which is an educational initiative made possible through state funding that offers adults 22 and older an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, receive training, and earn an industrial credential. In all, 32 students completed the Adult Diploma Program and received certifications for State Tested Nurse Aide (19), Phlebotomy (9), and Precision Machine Technology (2). 

“I know at times you wanted to quit,” said Dr. Glenn Faircloth, Superintendent of Lorain County JVS. “But you didn’t give up. And, tonight, we honor and recognize you for this outstanding accomplishment.” 

ACC graduate Jody Binggell said her journey to success had been a long time coming. “It took me 19 years to get my high school diploma. I have my State Tested Nurse Aide certification now, and I am going back for phlebotomy.” 

ACC Student Speaker Brittany Ogletree said she wanted to be her daughter’s role model. I know how good it feels not to give up. Now, the sky is the limit.”

 To close the ceremony, ACC Director Kristian Smith left the graduates with these parting words. “What I have learned in life is that your passion will develop into purpose. I hope you found your passion at Lorain County JVS.” 

The JVS Adult Career Center is now enrolling students for summer and fall courses. For a complete list of courses and programs, call 440-774-1051, ext. 22254 for more information.
