I’ve always been a strong supporter of Ohio Hi-Point. As an alumnus, and a member of the Alumni and Friends Association, I enjoy giving back to the school that helped me find a successful career.
After completing the Cosmetology program I was a hairdresser for 21 years, and I owned my own salon for eleven. As fate would have it, I found myself on a Hi-Point advisory council as a senior in high school and have remained on an advisory council ever since.
I later became interested in printing art and decided to change careers. I didn’t know anything about printing, but I knew through my Hi-Point network that the Printing and Graphics instructor, Tom Carrig, could point me in the right direction. After some hard work, I’m the proud owner of Rath Information Systems in Bellefontaine.
The benefits of networking and mentoring are just a small piece of the Alumni and Friends Association. Student scholarships are at the heart of our organization. Through membership donations and fundraisers, we’re able to provide high school students with a little extra help as they continue their educational studies.
