On Tuesday, July 19, Connect Ohio presented Sharon Griebling of Bucyrus with a new laptop computer during at Pioneer Career and Technology Center’s Bucyrus location. Griebling was selected as a winner in a random drawing following her participation in the Every Citizen Online program, a free statewide basic computer and Internet training program, and is the eighth of twelve winners to receive a new computer.
“I really enjoyed the training,” said Griebling. “The Internet was totally Greek to me. Kathy, the instructor, explained things on a level that was easy to understand. I didn’t know how to e-mail before (the training) and have been practicing. I have the Internet at home and an old computer. I’m excited to have a brand new one.”

“Pioneer has been offering career training to our community for the past 43 years,” said Bob Hartwell, Pioneer CTC technology coordinator. “Our cooperation with Connect Ohio to offer these classes fits into what we do every day for our students – at our main campus in Shelby, as well as branches like the Crawford County Job and Family Services Center in Bucyrus. Pioneer congratulates Sharon as one of the citizens who took advantage of these free classes, as well as being the lucky winner of a new computer.“
