From Judy Gilleland - City Manager
Cincinnati State Project
We have been keeping in close contact with Cincinnati State officials at various functions to retain the connection with Dr. Owens and his staff and faculty. In addition to the Middletown reception held for Dr. Owens’ Inauguration, several of us attended Dr. Owens’ Inauguration Ceremony on Friday at the campus. Dr. Owens was back in Middletown on Saturday morning to speak at the Greentree Academy Opening. Several of us will be attending the CS Board meeting tomorrow afternoon in anticipation of the Middletown project being discussed.
Greentree Health Science Academy Grand Opening
This trendsetting economic development project officially opened this past Saturday and serves as a model for regional cooperation among various agencies. This project started as a vision of Atrium’s Doug McNeill eight years ago. Miami U’s Dr. Kelly Cowan assisted with fundraising and shaping the vision. Warren Co. Career Center’s Maggie Hess brought in their piece to the puzzle as did Cincinnati State’s staff, both of which will be holding classes at the facility, along with Miami. Our Mike Robinette pulled the various groups together and sealed the deal. From there Atrium’s John McKinney headed up the project with the support of our Denise Hamet.
