Every Citizen Online All-Star Facility Award Presented to Clark State Community College

By COH Staff

Connect Ohio has named Clark State Community College (CSCC) an Every Citizen Online (ECO) All-Star Facility. The ECO all-star award was presented to Gary Kuhn, contract training facilitator for the Corporate and Public Services Department for the college, by executive director Stu Johnson during Connect Ohio’s quarterly Technology Association Meeting, held in Columbus December 9, 2011.

Connect Ohio ECO staff, including state operations managers and the executive director, choose the All-Star Facility awardee based on meeting various program ‘hallmarks of excellence’. These include, but are not limited to, the number of adults taking ECO training at the facility’s locations, ECO program survey completion rate, creative promotional and community partnerships assisting in awareness and local success of the program, and the level of engagement of facility coordinators in the ECO program. Specifically, CSCC has worked to create partnerships with agencies to offer additional classes and reached extraordinary program statistics. The organization has had 1,164 total students trained to date and is currently averaging 9 students per class.

Connect Ohio is impressed with CSCC’s great partner collaboration, which includes working with libraries, workforce development centers, and senior centers, in order to train adults across multiple counties. The Clark County Job and Family Services (JFS) training facility is one such partnership, which merges the training with their other programs relating to job searches and job skills. Of the 1,164 Clark State trained participants, 508 have resulted from Clark County JFS.

Congratulations Clark State Community College and keep up the great work!
