MVCTC Letter of Support, Kristy Geiger
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing this letter to show my support for the Miami Valley Career Technology Center and its upcoming renewal levy on November 3, 2020. MVCTC is located in my hometown and I have seen the amount of growth and opportunities it has afforded those around me for many years. First, my friends that I went to high school with and now, as a parent, my own child.
My son is the kind of person that has to work very hard for what he wants, things to not come naturally to him. MVCTC has provided him with a passion for learning, and a tangible goal to work toward. Not only is he receiving the best education possible, but he has received an opportunity to work and learn in his field in the real world. I feel more confident than ever that he is going to be prepared for the world when he graduates from high school.
This renewal levy will help to ensure that MVCTC continues to change the lives of many students the way it has changed my son’s life. It will ensure that the teachers have the equipment they need to prepare students for good jobs in healthcare, public safety, hospitality, information technology, and skilled trades. And, it will keep 40 career technical programs that prepare high school students from 27 school districts for jobs and college.
I feel that this renewal is worth the investment considering that it consists of 45% of all general fund revenue and 89% of all local revenue. Please vote YES on Miami Valley Career Technology Center’s 2.18 mills property tax renewal. Vote YES for innovation. Vote YES for career-based education. Vote YES to invest in our future economy. And lastly, vote YES to continue funding a school that has a proven track record of success.
