Reading is FUNdamental, emphasis on fun!

“The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

– Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!” 

Reading is the window into the world and far beyond; Provost Hoopes opened that window for our youngest scholars of the Mallory Learning Center.

Each week, these young achievers participate in the Reading is Great at Cincinnati State activity, and the story that Provost Hoopes shared with the group was, “I Want My Hat Back” by children’s book author, Jon Klassen. 

It’s a story about a bear who loses his hat, and ends up finding it on his friend, the rabbit’s head. The book is filled with visual humor and a mischievous plot twist.   Provost Hoopes donned his own “hat” for the occasion too.

From the looks of these images, the great big group bear hug Provost received at the end, could have very well been the highlight of his week! 

Recent graduate accepts permanent position

Kathleen Ray a 2016 Cincinnati State honors graduate was recently hired to execute duties in the Accounting/Finance Office full-time.

Kathleen majored in Accounting and graduated with a 3.75 gpa.  In her senior year, a co-op experience had not been completed, so to answer the call, Co-Op Coordinator Maya Franklin, Office of Disability Services Manager Pamela Goines, and Finance Director, Bill Quattrone diligently worked together to create an on-campus co-op opportunity for her.

Kathleen did exemplary work during her co-op experience, as was evidenced every time Bill Quattrone mentioned her in a conversation.  He remarked about her excellent work and that he hoped to get the opportunity to hire her as a permanent employee.  When a position became available she was immediately hired to work for Virginia Klein in Accounts Payable.

“This is what Cincinnati State does well,” says Pamela Goins, “train, develop, and work diligently to place all students in a co-op opportunity with the intent that permanent employment is the end result.”
