District thanks business partners

Leaders from Goshen Local Schools were pleased to recognize valued business and community partners on Wednesday, March 1 at the annual Business Advisory Council breakfast.

Along with several local businesses, the district honored the Clermont County Long-Term Recovery Committee that continues to help so many following the July 2022 tornado.

More than 130 business partners and 60 local businesses were invited to see the results of their support of Goshen students and were provided breakfast at Goshen High School. Business guests were also given certificates of appreciation and a “G” pin for all of their support.

GHS students spoke to the group about the learning opportunities that were made possible to them by business partners. Hailey Mulvihill and Madeline Lengyel presented on the FlexFactor competition sponsored by Sinclair Community College. Jasmine Faulkner, Katelyn Humphreys and Isabella Gay talked about the high school’s Goshen News Network program, and how they have been learning about journalism and video production. The GNN staff recently produced videos about the workplaces of American Modern, the GHS carpentry program, HealthSource Ohio and the Goshen post office.

For the 13th year, Goshen Local Schools also nominated business partners to be added to the Ohio School Boards Association Business Honor Roll for their role in providing continued opportunities to Goshen students. This year's honorees were:

  • Loveland Express: The Patel family and Loveland Express have made a generous donation each month to Goshen Schools to help support our students. One cent for each gallon of gas sold is donated back to our schools. Khusbu Patel accepted the award.
  • Allied Construction Industries: Allied Construction Industries has helped Goshen School District strengthen student career pathways to construction, through interest building programs, implementing pre-apprenticeship, partnering with She Builds, attending CCAP workshops and Construction Career Days. 
  • Catalyst Counseling LLC: Through the district’s goal of expanding on-campus mental health services to more students and families, Catalyst began working with the district at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. Catalyst therapists now work in all Goshen buildings, making a significant impact in the lives of some of the most at-risk students.

Also recognized during the breakfast:

  • Sinclair Community College: Recognized as a Friend to the Goshen College and Career Program.
