Careers with Children

 The students who are enrolled in Careers with Children have a unique opportunity to work hands on in a preschool.

Supply Chain News

Greenville Career Technical Center is thrilled to announce ten students from the Supply Chain Management Program have earned positions on Business Professionals of America’s Leadership team!

On Tuesday, September 16, the Region 3 Business Professionals of America (BPA) held their annual officer screening at Greenville High School.   Twenty-nine students from six area schools screened for officer positions. Miami Valley Career Tech Center, Franklin Monroe, Valley View, Milton Union, Wayne and Greenville are all a part of the newly formed Region 3 for Business Professionals of America.  Ten students out of the thirteen executive board seats were earned by juniors and seniors from the Supply Chain Management (SCM) program at Greenville Career Technical Center!  The screening process includes a LIVE interview, the presentation of a personally written speech to judges, a web based exam covering the history of Business Professionals of America as well as past officers names and positions held at the Regional and State levels, finally the candidates all presented their speech for recording purposes to be viewed by the full membership to determine officer positions.

 All SCM students participated for real life experience with interviewing and presenting in front of business professionals. The students studied the BPA and memorized facts and details. In preparation for the competition the students had the opportunity to create a personal resume for themselves and learn about the factors of a successful interview. It is challenging for young people to not only get past the nervous state, but also express themselves clearly when in a challenging situation.

The next step in the BPA process will be for candidates who desire to compete for an officer position to do so in Columbus on October 20.

The tag line for Business Professionals of America – Today’s students, tomorrow’s business professionals, demonstrates the purpose for the program.  BPA is structured to help develop effective leaders, team players and promotes professionalism.

Please join in congratulating the students who will serve on BPA’s Executive Board for the 2014-2015 school year and for the entire SCM team for accomplishing a great feat – facing fears and feeling success!

MED Tech Assists GCS Screenings

Every year, the seniors of Medical Tech Prep along with GHS School Nurse, Mrs. Kathy Jetter, conduct health screenings for all freshmen students within Greenville High School.  Instructor of Med Tech, Mrs. Emily Powers provides her students with instruction on the skills needed in order to conduct the screenings.  “Students are taught proper screening techniques for vision, hearing, height and weight as well as assessing blood pressure,” stated Mrs. Powers.   These screenings provide the freshmen population with an overall measure of their health and baseline knowledge of what these results mean.  The Project Coordinator for the screenings and senior Med Tech student , Madisyn Pieper added, “Conducting the screenings is an event we all look forward to.  We organize, plan and implement the screenings ourselves.  This experience gives us the opportunity to practice the skills we have learned as well as practice bedside manner and how to communicate with our patients”. 

The Med Tech Program has 50 students benefiting from the program.  The students currently enrolled are interested in entering any avenue of the medical field, including: nursing, phlebotomy, physician assistant, pharmacy, physician, among many others. Senior and Med Tech President Holly Cameron stated, “Some people are certain they want to go into pediatrics or become a surgeon, and then they get there and realize that’s not for them.  Med Tech provides us with the opportunity to understand what it takes to be successful in the medical field before we go off to college.  It is helpful to know what you are getting yourself into before you are fully committed”.  Students earn STNA, CPR and First Aid certifications as well as up to twenty articulated credits from Sinclair Community College.

Lights, Film and Action

The junior and senior Interactive Media (IMTV) students in the Career Tech Center at Greenville Senior High School have been applying their skills to workforce projects and partnerships with local community clients.

IMTV houses the new Channel 5, WAVE, formerly GPAT (Greenville Public Access Television). The students have been very busy in creating logos, templates, message board postings and programming for Channel 5.  Also, the students have been video recording the Greenville City Council Meetings, Greenville Board of Education Meetings, GHS sports, GHS school activities and other community events. IMTV is looking forward to upgrade programming for the citizens of Greenville and Darke County in their new in-house studio.

Interactive Media is a creative, business oriented approach to graphics arts, computer animation, audio/video techniques, photography and web design. Students learn to use advanced multimedia techniques to create, organize, manage, and present digital information in a variety of media forms.  Upon successfully completion of this course, students will be proficient in using industry standard software and hardware, efficiently managing and presenting information, comfortably presenting projects to small groups as well as planning, designing and creating multimedia projects successfully in both team and individual environments.
