Co-op Employer and Program Advisory Board Appreciation Dinner

On Thursday, October 20, Cincinnati State welcomed its Co-op Employer partners and Program Advisory Board members to its annual appreciation event.  The evening hosted by Master of Ceremonies Adam Waits highlighted the many new changes and initiatives that are taking place at the College, such as the appointments of our new President and Provost. 

The academic program spotlight focused on our new Brewing Sales and Marketing Certificate.  Program Chair Carla Gessell - Streeter overviewed how a community need for skilled employees has led to the creation of our new certificate and the development of a degree.  Carla talked about the rich history of Cincinnati in brewing history and the rebirth of the industry over the past several years.  She highlighted the need for the industry in all aspects of their operations.

A highlight of the evening focused on Mr. Steve Cahill of Abercombie and Associates, who has been a long-time employer with our Civil Engineering Co-op program.

The event spotlighted one of many new cooperative education videos that are currently being presented to students during Co-op orientation sessions.  The videos provide context to students as to why the co-op experience that they partake in is so important for not only the employer, but for their education and career goals.  Be sure to check them out when you have the opportunity!
