The 2017/18 School Year Begins

Upper Valley Career Center kicks off the 2017-2018 school year with “Jump-Start Day” for new students Friday, August 18. All students, returning and new, will attend classes on Monday, August 21. The school day hours of operation remain the same as last year, 8:23am to 2:44pm.

The school is preparing for increased enrollment with a combined total of 962 juniors and seniors expected on campus in Piqua. An additional 3,000 students will participate in 25 Upper Valley Career Center sponsored satellite programs at associate schools throughout Miami and Shelby counties.

The start-up of the highly anticipated Veterinary Science program is one factor attributed to the high enrollment for this school year. Twenty-eight juniors have signed up for the program which will be taught by Dr. Deb Stanfield, DVM. Executive Director Jason Haak shares, “We are very pleased to have Dr. Stanfield launch this program. Her professionalism and dedication is well known throughout the area. We are confident the students will benefit from her knowledge and experience” Work has begun on a brand new, dedicated space for the Veterinary Sciences program.

In addition to Dr. Stanfield, the school welcomes the following new staff: Lindsey Riethman, Counselor; Amanda Brumbaugh, Special Needs Instructor; Biffy Nutter, Teacher Academy Instructor; Dan Schmiesing, Ag and Power Technologies Instructor; Leslie Spivey, Computer Information Technologies Instructor; Megan Geise, Exercise Science Instructor; Tim Delk, HVAC Instructor; Becky McKenna, FCS/Troy High School.

Scott Naill who has previously served as the high school HVAC instructor was named director of the Adult Division July 1. Deputy Phil Osting, will become full-time SRO after serving both Upper Valley Career Center and West Milton High School during the previous school year.

The majority of juniors will receive a dedicated Chromebook for their exclusive use during their time at Upper Valley CC. Students participating in programs which utilize large software packages will receive laptops. All students have the opportunity to earn their assigned device by maintaining excellent attendance and grades. Haak says, “This is a student-centered institution. I am looking forward to continuing our efforts as we work together to provide high quality, rigorous, and ever evolving workforce development programs that service the needs of business, industry, government, and individuals in our region.”
