Trio Student Support Services Leadership Training Day

Cincinnati State’s Trio Student Support Services program sent two dozen students to a Leadership Training Day in West Chester last week on August 19, 2015.

 “They were provided invaluable training on how to take charge of their futures and understand the core competencies for effective leadership, personal development and people management,” said Bari Ewing, Director of College Access Programs for Cincinnati State.

 During the workshop, Tommie Lewis, President and CEO of Make It Plain Consulting, LLC, shared strategies on how to leverage skills in self-awareness, self-control, relationship management and social awareness. The workshop also included presentations concerning personal economic advancement, “engagement approaches,” and how to prepare 30 second “elevator speeches.”

 Gretchen Cook, Assistant Director of TRiO Student Support Services, said she was excited about this leadership networking opportunity and by the best practices shared by the facilitator to help our students make sustainable connections for their future. 


Cincinnati State Trustees Extend Contract of College President, Dr. O’dell Moreno Owens

In a special session of the Board yesterday, Trustees voted to extend the employment contract of Dr. O’dell M. Owens which expired Monday, August 31, 2015.  Mrs. Cathy Crain, Board Chair, said the extension gives the Board time to create a new contract for Dr. Owens after the excitement and rush of the new semester. “Dr. Owens has been an excellent President and because of his high profile in the community, he’s raised the community’s level of perception about the high quality education it provides at the most affordable cost among colleges and universities in the area. The result for Cincinnati is a well-educated, ready-to-work workforce. In fact there are few area businesses that don’t employ Cincinnati State graduates.”

The Board expects to offer Dr. Owens a new contract in the next month and will vote on it during a regular session, possibly at the September board meeting.
