Light Up The Night

The community is invited May, 10th at 9pm to help Light Up The Night – a benefit Corynna Strawser.  With 400 beautiful lighted lanterns glowing on the City Park pond you won’t want to miss the opportunity to simply join us that evening as we show our love and support to this amazing young lady.

Corynna Strawser, a Greenville teen, has suffered from an incurable gastrointestinal illness the majority of her life as well as mitochondrial disease. Over the past two years Corynna’s illness has become more severe and she cannot do the things she used to be capable of. Because of Corynna’s medical needs it has become necessary for the family to make their home more accessible for Corynna to live only on the first floor as she can no longer walk.  They need to build an addition to provide her with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
This amazing young girl has gone through multiple surgeries and pain that no one could ever imagine with rarely a complaint.  As a community, it is our time to come together to help the Strawser family by Lighting UpThe Night. 

We are asking for the community to help by purchasing the paper lanterns for $3.00  through any donation they are able to make to this worth cause.  In kind donations of labor as well as donations of supplies are also being accepted.  Please stop by Furniture Express on Wagner Avenue or at American Title on Broadway to make your donation to help Corynna!  Lanterns will be sold in the high school lobby from 11 to 12:30 during the first week of May.  
The event will be held in the Greenville City Park on May 10th at 9pm at the two center ponds and anyone is welcome to come set up and light the lanterns at 8pm on that date. The scheduled rain date is Saturday, May 11th.   We plan to launch 400 lanterns for the Strawser family to show our support. For any questions please contact Dara Buchy at or by calling 5484188 (career tech office). Please join us for this amazing event!

SCM Helps Community Employment Services

Supply Chain Management students from Greenville High School recently completed a marketing project for Community Employment Services a program within the Darke County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

This fall Tamala Marley, Job Coordinator for CES, approached the Greenville Career Tech Center for assistance in designing a new tri-fold brochure to enhance their marketing program.  The SCM students offered their services and the collaboration began.

Ms. Marley came into the SCM classroom and shared her ideas and goals for the project. The students in both the Junior SCM class and the Senior SCM class got to work in teams of two creating their personal brochure as they understood the goals.  After completion the students reviewed all of the projects and voted on the top three options to submit to the CES program for review.  The winning brochure was selected and a few small revisions made. Ms. Marley’s Team was excited for the creative outcome and look forward to using it to increase awareness for the program in the community.

Senior SCM student  Adam Hickerson, explained, “It was nice to work for a business in our community. The experience taught us how to take others ideas and guidelines to create something that is appreciated and can have a positive impact on the community.”
 The senior SCM students recently toured Wayne Industries to see the how the facility functions and how the brochure will benefit the workers.   While on tour, the students had an opportunity to speak with a Wayne Industries employee. He explained to the students he enjoys working at  both Wayne Industries and Arby’s.  His job at Arby’s is part of the Community Employment Services program!  Jobs like this allow the workers the opportunity to be more self sufficient and successful!  “I enjoyed experiencing the job site of Wayne Industries.  It was neat to see the employees working, but made me realize even more how important this brochure is to allowing them to  make more money and support themselves,” said Brian Bailey after the tour.

Tara Guillozet, the creator of the chosen brochure shares, “Having the opportunity to work with Tamala Marley with CES and create this brochure has given me real life experience. She knew what she wanted. We made it happen!”
Supply Chain Management is a two year program offered at Greenville High School Career Tech Center.  The students study all aspects of logistics, procurement, customer service, and marketing. The program welcomes community involvement and invites area business owners to share their experiences in the classroom.
