OU-C Dean Martin Tuck addressed the recent Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Rally that was held in the Shoemaker Center. The event included middle- and high-school students from throughout the region.
The dean noted the similarities between the FCCLA and the Chillicothe Campus, particularly in regards to core values.
The dean also encouraged the students to strongly consider attending college, whether at OU-C or elsewhere, stressing the opportunities that a college career presents.
“At Ohio University Chillicothe, we offer the close-knit feeling of a small campus setting and – as part of Ohio University – the resources and reputation of a nationally recognized university.”
“Wherever your paths lead you, I trust you will seriously consider attending college. We need quality students such as you on our campuses,” Dean Tuck said. “Attending college is a wonderful opportunity and allows you to expand your horizons, meet people from various backgrounds and find a profession that sparks your passion and enriches your life.”
