Greetings from Livingston, Guatemala!

For the next two weeks, students and faculty from Cincinnati State will be in Guatemala as part of a study abroad program. Most of their time will be spent in and around Livingston, a rural community where the College has been participating in public service projects in recent years.

The top photo shows a project that was on last year’s agenda: finishing construction of this house. Today the individual who manages horticulture projects in the region lives there.

The photos below show a selfie taken in the gardens of a hotel where the Cincinnati State group stayed upon arrival. The other shows group members in their primary mode of transportation for the next two weeks: boats!

Middletown hosts ‘3 and a Book’ Orientation

The Cincinnati State Middletown campus hosted an orientation session this week for students in the ‘3 and a Book’ program. Approximately 30 students and their parents attended. Linda Romero and Tom Hale provided sage advice regarding what it takes for a high school student to be successful with in a college course.

One parent found the session rewarding.

“Thank you for the 3 and a Book orientation this evening at the Middletown campus,” read one comment card. “This is a first college class for my 16 year old sophomore son. You both did a wonderful job of making the kids feel welcome, invited and also put fears to rest.”

Women's BBall signs Kentucky recruit

Hannah Young, a senior at Henry Clay High School in Lexington, Kentucky, is set to join the Cincinnati State women’s basketball program.

Young, a 6-foot-1 center, signed a letter of intent on Tuesday at her high school.

Young’s team at Henry Clay, led by head coach Eric Sanford, posted an impressive 27-4 record this past season. The Lady Devils went undefeated in district play and won the district championship before falling in the regional final. Young corralled 10 rebounds in a regional semifinal victory and scored 10 points in her last high school game.

Surge head coach Sonya Beeler said Young played in a system at Henry Clay that is very similar to the one she runs at Cincinnati State.

“They did a lot of full-court pressing, strong man-to man defense and they run and fast-break a lot,” Beeler said. “Hannah will fit right in with our system immediately.”

Beeler added that Young has a nice jump hook and can go right or left. She said she is looking forward to working with Young and enhancing her current post game.

Trustees to meet May 26

The Cincinnati State Board of Trustees will meet May 26 in regular session. The meeting will begin at 3:45 p.m. in the Conference Center.
