STATEHOUSE - 

State Senator Bob Peterson (R–Washington Court House) today announced the 2015 Legislative Scholarship Program that assists students in obtaining necessary education and training to obtain a job in an Ohio business or industry.
 
The scholarship is sponsored by the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools in cooperation with members of House and Senate in the Ohio General Assembly.
 
Scholarships are available for full or half tuition as well as specific dollar amounts.
 
“Helping Ohioans get needed job training is an important part of keeping the state’s economy moving,” said Peterson. “There are so many open and available job opportunities in Ohio and specifically in our region that are just waiting for the right person. This scholarship opportunity is perfect for someone looking to advance their career by getting themselves ready for those opportunities.”
 
The scholarships are available to any current high school seniors who will graduate from an Ohio high school by June 2015.
 
In order to be eligible for the program, applicants must obtain the signature of a State Representative or State Senator on their Legislative Nomination Form. The deadline to apply is April 10, 2015.

Remembering Accomplishments In 2017 And Setting New Goals For 2018

 

With 2017 behind us, the Ohio General Assembly is now over halfway through its legislative session. This point provides us with the opportunity to take stock of where we are and where we want to go. I was proud to support bills last year that created greater workforce opportunities, provided relief and support for Ohio's agriculture industry, and created a better environment for Ohioans to grow and prosper. I am proud of what we accomplished last year, and I am optimistic about the continuing positive impacts we will make on our communities.
