A new partnership between Terra State Community College and WSOS that was made possible by a U.S. Department of Labor grant is off to a great start, college officials say.

The first cohort recently completed their coursework and had 100 percent job placement – great news for the students and for employers who are in need of skilled workers.

According to Kerrie Carte, WSOS Planning and Development Coordinator, three years ago, WSOS in Fremont received a $6.1 million Ready To Work grant through the U.S. Department of Labor. “The grant is to train individuals in advanced manufacturing, information technology, environmental and healthcare careers.”

Penta Career Center will host its annual Career Night Monday, Dec. 4 from 6-8 p.m. at its campus, located at 9301 Buck Rd. in Perrysburg Township. 

The event is designed to introduce high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors; middle school students and parents to the career-technical training options available at Penta Career Center.

More than 130 volunteers gathered Nov. 5 at Heinz North America in Fremont to pack meals for international hunger relief through Rise Against Hunger. The grassroots organization coordinates the assembly-line packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals. Members of Boy Scout Troop 370 and American Heritage Girls OH2303, both of Oak Harbor, joined Heinz employees and other community members at the event.
