Hard work pays off and for students who attend the Career Based Intervention Program at Tri Star as their hard work has gained them well deserved recognition.

Tess Elshoff, President of the Ohio School Board visited Tri Star Career Compact. Her interest was sparked when she attended an awards banquet and noticed many of the students attended Tri Star.

Elshoff says Tri-Star programs similar to it are important because, "Today all of the manufacturers along with the teachers are kind of changing how they approach this and kind of embracing the excitement of you need to learn this because it gives you opportunities in the workforce and the business that come in and partner to show all the opportunities they can offer the students."

The visit is even more exciting because the career-based intervention is a statewide program, however, thanks to local business and companies who are always looking to hire, students at Tri Star are better prepared to succeed.

According to Career Tech Director, Tim Buschur, students are prepared in multiple ways. "Get some financial literacy which is great, work ethic, how to interview, we had a job fair last week which had all of our students, it went very well. I think learn how to next phase of their life, after high school."

But Tri Star is not a one size fits all program, many students work through CBI as a way to earn money for college.

Elshoff says, "They don't have to just go to college or they can get technical or credentials that can possibly help them along on the pathway to college and open up more doors and more opportunities."

And soon the program will be open to even more students, as the facility prepares to expand their enrollment in a new location which will open in the fall of 2019.
