Kids in College program draws interest of statewide school boards association



Gary Motz of the Ohio School Boards Association was recently on campus to create an article on Kids in College (KIC) for the August/ September issue of Journal, the association’s publication. He viewed students in a “Crime Lab Scene” class taught by OU-C faculty member Sonja Rawn.

“One thing that impressed me was that the program offers high-quality sessions at such an affordable rate. That's especially important for lower-income families whose children might not have opportunities for summer enrichment were it not for this program,” Motz remarked “I also was very impressed by the enthusiasm I saw in everyone, from the administrators to the instructors to the students. I also talked to a parent who echoed my thoughts about the program being high quality and affordable.”

The popular KIC program began 28 years ago and is a long-standing Chillicothe tradition. This year, 115 youth participated in educational activities. The program provides opportunities for area youth to combine summertime fun while enriching their academic skills by studying areas of interest. KIC is one way in which the Chillicothe Campus connects with the region it serves.
