Nine-to-Five Students Honored


Ottawa County high school students were recognized May 3 at the Twenty-fifth Annual Nine-to-Five Breakfast held at the Mon Ami Restaurant in Port Clinton.  The purpose behind this breakfast is to recognize "improvement" in students in attitude, attendance, academics, or overall school performance.  One student is selected from each grade (10, 11, 12) at each high school in Ottawa County.  Grade 9 is not included because those students are just establishing themselves in high school.  Students are selected based upon their performance from September (ninth month) to May (fifth month) and by nominations from faculty in their respective high school.  Students are also asked to select a person who has had a significant impact in their life which contributed to their performance.

Douglas Crooks, Superintendent for North Point Educational Service Center, Judge Kathleen Giesler, Juvenile and Probate Courts, and Commissioners Mark Coppeler and Mark Stahl recognized each student on their persistence and attitude in setting and maintaining personal goals for the year.  High school principals recognized each student's efforts by presenting a certificate of achievement.  Significant persons (selected by each student) who contributed to the student's improvement were also presented certificates.  The Ottawa County Cabinet of Superintendents (Guy Parmigian, Benton-Carroll-Salem Local; Cari Buehler, Danbury Local; Michael Ferguson, Genoa Area Local; Chad Coffman, Lakota Local; Patrick Adkins, Port Clinton City) Steven Poe, Put-in-Bay; and Timothy Rettig, Woodmore Local commended the students on their outstanding effort and their "significant persons" for the impact they have had on the student's life by "being there" in time of needed support.  Invited guests and administrators were impressed by the verbal commendations of the students to their selected individuals.
