Mid-Ohio ESC Business Advisory Council Earns 3-Star Award

Mansfield, OH (March 20, 2024) – MOESC’s Business Advisory Council was recently awarded three stars in the 2024 Business-Education Leader Awards for Excellent Business Advisory Councils. The business advisory councils honored demonstrate excellence in developing professional skills for the future, building partnerships and coordinating experiences, which contribute to preparing students for success. 

Angela Powell, Morrow County Development Coordinator, said, “The MOESC Business Advisory Council has been essential in improving the Business/Education partnership in Morrow County and guiding the work of the Morrow County Action Team by providing best practices and resources to create career readiness opportunities for Morrow County youth.”

These awards recognize educators, business partners, staff, schools, businesses, educational service centers, joint vocational school districts and communities that come together to create dynamic, career-focused learning environments for students. Three-star business advisory councils implement quality practices throughout the year to create a culture of career-focused opportunities for all students.

Jeremy Secrist, Superintendent of Lexington Local Schools, praised the Business Advisory Council: “The Mid-Ohio BAC has done a fabulous job of bringing together educational and business leaders to help solve our local employment needs through great educational offerings and opportunities for students and staff. Amy Wood and the BAC are creating employment pathways for graduates and future graduates that will help the area recruit and keep some of the best talent our local schools produce, benefitting the area for years to come.”

“I would like to thank Amy Wood for her efforts in leading the Mid-Ohio ESC Business Advisory Council and for earning this recognition.
