It was almost like a dream come true for the team behind the New Tri Star Career Compact facility; the groundbreaking ceremony at the location where the facility will stand was a point that didn't seem possible to reach.

"I think it's something that we never thought would happen; it was really neat having our original board members, original superintendents, teachers here and it's almost like a pipe dream that actually wasn't even thought of, and then within two and a half years here, we're moving dirt," said Tim Buschur, director of Tri Star Career Compact.

A large group of people were present at the ceremony, including Tri Star students and superintendents. Those that worked to get the new facility funded say that they owe a lot to the superintendents, who helped to give them a fighting chance last November.

"It speaks volumes about this whole rural West Central Ohio that the superintendents and different school districts put the greater need over their individual needs, realizing how important this is to West Central Ohio," said Brian Styer, Manager of Employee Relations for Nidec Minster Corp.

"The 25 million dollar facility will stand across the street from the Wright State University Lake Campus in Celina and will continue to serve the students in their 9 districts in Mercer and Auglaize counties.  While it's a great day for the current board, they say that they can't take all the credit for getting them where they are today.

"There was a lot of hard work done not just these last two years, but the first 40 years, because there was a lot of groundwork done, a lot of battles fought that lead to today, and I think this is just a culmination of all that hard work," Buschur said.
