It will be very interesting to see if Y S U's leadership team is willing to hire a person who lacks a PhD or earned doctorate to be an 'academic' leader.
It's also interesting that coach tressel isnt interested in politics, as in running for congress. Some former coaches and athletes have done so with some success (see: Tom Osborne-Jack Kemp-Dave Bing etc.)
YSU's enrollment numbers are down due largely to the emergence of EGCC. Like to the tune of 2,500 students. We'll see how he does, should the trustees decide to give (some of) the public what it wants.

In response to any criticism of this community,Someone always says .but we have mill creek park! With fracking going on beneath it, of course.
People around here seem quite satisfied with low wages, low rents, short commutes and drive times, and easy access to groceries, shopping, etc. In many ways, in modern times, this is a really great place to live if you have a good (paying) job. If not, then not so much.
One of the themes here has to do with the chaos created by having one -party government when that party cannot handle the responsibility. Very valid points. Republicans are not the alternative.
Obesity rates here are staggering. Almost like Tennessee or Mississippi.
Let's form a symposium on this and make some recommendations. First meeting is at breakfast place with eggs bacon toast sausage and potatoes...and NO FRUIT, please. See you there.

how did you get so smart?youseem to know the answer to everything!
If we have open enrollment everywheres, then the need for OHSAA disappears, nec-est-pas?
The point here, stupid, is that in a REGULATED environment, the rules constrict the publics! They are, in fact, penalized by having only students who attend by geographical boundaries!
If this is too complicated, make a post complaining about your schooling, which appears to be lacking, jus sayin'

glad to hear mr. munroe is fully supportive, given the 'odds' that he's never placed an honest bet, i.e., one at a public track or casino, in his life!

Just tryin to find out, did I say STRUTHERS?
For a very small, oddly shaped, decidedly ordinary community, the adminstration sure gots a lot o juice, relative to the MSESC!
Anyone know why?

Very intersting 'article.' Its journalistic or news value being negligible such as it is, it does show how the efforts of many committed PROFESSIONALS, such as those teachers, aides, and administrators who guide, direct, and teach kids with special needs every day, succeed and help kids to grow.
Boardman is rather a large target these days; the schools are EXCELLENT, and if ya dont believe that, drop in, get a visitors' pass, and take a walk--you'll be impressed!

I think he should have accepted the mcesc job.
He probably should retire/ rehire first, however like the rest of the struthers homeboys + homegirls who 'work' for mcesc.
Our county superintendent, who apparently needs an assistant, still has time to be on the struthers football coaching staff!
Being a former struthers administrator is the key, around here anyways to unlimited wealth and and permanent employment. Just check the mcesc website and see how many employees are struthers retire /rehire administrators.
