Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) participated in the 50th anniversary celebration of Four County Career Center by presenting a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol Building to Superintendent Tim Meister last evening. The ceremony also included the induction of six former students into the “Wall of Fame” and a distinguished service award for former superintendent William Spiess. Four County Career Center provides career and technical education (CTE) for students in Fulton, Henry, Defiance, and Williams Counties. Latta recently supported the Strengthening Career and Technical Education Act for the 21st Century Act to provide more flexibility to state and local community leaders for using federal CTE funds in order to better serve their area. The bill would also increase engagement with employers to improve training alignment with current in-demand jobs. The legislation was signed into law in July.
“One only had to listen to the speeches from the “Wall of Fame” inductees to understand the importance that Four County Career Center has played in the lives of countless students through the years,” said Latta. “Career and Technical Education has never been more important, and schools like Four County should be the model for how to prepare young people for the workforce. I commend the teachers, administrators, and students for all of their efforts. Congratulations to Four County Career Center on 50 years of success."
