Butler Tech is proud to announce that two of our dedicated and innovative instructors, Lisa Seger and Melissa Williams have earned the 2019-2020 Cleveland Clinic Banner School designation. The Cleveland Clinic K–12 Education offers school programs designed to promote health and wellness, academic achievement, and career preparedness for students in grades K through 12. It takes ambitious teachers and encouraging administrators, though, to deliver these opportunities to students. The effort invested by Seger and Williams in implementing the Worldwide Classroom® Program demonstrates an exceptional commitment to student enrichment.
The Cleveland Clinic Banner School distinction was earned by fewer than 24% of the 264 schools in ten states that participated in our K–12 Education School Programs this year and recognizes noteworthy success in leveraging community resources to advance student learning.
“For my career to come full circle, I wanted to return to where it all started, in the classroom. I want to give back to those who are considering a career in the medical field. As a newer instructor in secondary education, I have been taking the steps for the Colerain Career Center Healthcare Science program to be afforded the best educational opportunities available in the country. I also want to share the exciting experiences that I have had by working around the country, hoping to inspire young minds and letting them know there are limitless career possibilities in the medical field.
One of the best opportunities to expose my students to renowned medical innovations would be to partner with the Cleveland Clinic in their Worldwide Classroom every week. The U.S. News & World Report consistently names Cleveland Clinic as one of the nation’s top hospitals in its annual “America’s Best Hospitals” survey and has named Cleveland Clinic’s heart program Number 1 in the nation since 1995 (as a cardiac nurse this is near & dear to my heart 😊). They have obtained Magnet Status, which only around 8% of the hospitals in our country have earned that status. They have over 67,000 healthcare workers. Many medical firsts and breakthroughs have occurred at this prestigious institution,” Lisa Seger, Instructor at Butler Tech’s Colerain Career Center.
“This experience has allowed the students to learn more about each profession within the classroom and it helped them see and hear real-world skills needed and pathways needed to achieve and become someone in that career,” Melissa Williams, Instructor at Butler Tech’s Middletown satellite location.
Congratulations from their supervisors:
“I want to say congratulations to Lisa and all of her students. It has been wonderful to work with doctors and nurses from one of the premier hospitals in the United States. Thank you to them, for all the time they have dedicated to this endeavor,” Chris Trentman, Supervisor
“Melissa truly advocates for her students and for Middletown City Schools. She continues to strive to find real-world experiences for kids and helps them pursue their career goals thru exploration and practice,” Chad Packer, Supervisor
Congratulations Lisa and Melissa!
