With the need of personal protective equipment (PPE) skyrocketing during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ohio Hi-Point Career Center is answering the call by donating 69 boxes of medical gloves, 13 boxes of food-service gloves, four boxes of masks, 300 pieces of simulated PPE, 300 pairs of safety glasses, and a multitude of miscellaneous items to the Emergency Management Agency in each county Ohio Hi-Point serves (Logan, Champaign, Hardin, Union, and Auglaize).
“Our teachers continue to look through supply closets to respond to the request by the Governor for PPE,” said superintendent Dr. Rick Smith. “We are proud to be a part of this community and give back in a time of need.”
The supplies were donated from a number of Ohio Hi-Point’s career technical programs, with the majority coming from the OHP’s health programs.
The Ohio Hi-Point Bellefontaine Main Campus serves juniors and seniors in high school while the district’s satellite programs, which bring career programming directly to students in their home schools, serve seventh through 12th grade students at 11 out of the district’s 14 partner schools.
