EHOVE students win Janotta & Herner project, company donates $1,000

AVERY — For the fifth consecutive year, Janotta & Herner conducted a competition in which the EHOVE Career Center construction and electrical tech students worked as teams to create a realistic bid for a building project.

Each team was challenged to include real detail about supplies, pricing and timeframe and much more, while also presenting the bid in a professional, quality manner. Janotta & Herner is a key partner in helping EHOVE students learn the importance of planning, organizing and creating a budget for a construction project.

Janotta & Herner representatives judged the bids on everything from accuracy and how they were organized to proper pricing and realistic timelines. As the need for qualified, trained workers in the trades increases, real-world projects such as these help students learn how to become good workers.

This year’s winning team consisted of construction tech students Caden Cooper and Jared Battle (both Edison High School) and electrical tech student Dakota Doyon (New London).

Janotta & Herner Vice President Jason Ott and quality assurance supervisor Ted Fries presented the winning team with $500 from the company for their quality efforts. In addition, the company also donated $500 to EHOVE and provided a check to assistant director Matt Ehrhardt.

Nursing program ranked in top 10 again

The site of www.practicalnursing.org ranked EHOVE adult career center school as number 10 of 60 for the second year in a row. This is the third year EHOVE has remained in the top 20 schools in Ohio

For the ranking, nursing programs were assessed on several factors that represent how well a program prepares students toward licensure and for their career in nursing. More information about the group's methodology is available at www.practicalnursing.org/lpn-programs/ohio.

“We believe in providing students with better transparency in regard to practical and vocational nursing programs throughout their state that allows them to better match the right school accessible to them," said wesbite founder Simon Korpi. “This is the reason we have developed our LPN & LVN programs ranking based on NCLEX-PN exam passing rates.”

Enrollment is open now for the next EHOVE part-time day program, which begins June 4. The full-time program that starts July 5. Call 419-499-4663 ext. 231 regarding steps to admission.
