We are proud to have been part of the Northeast Ohio Impact Academy, a new and exciting education facility in Campbell, Ohio! STEM education has such great promise for our youth, and makes it possible for more of them to stay and succeed right here in the Mahoning Valley.
The Mahoning Valley College Access Program provides career counseling and invites speakers, many of whom are from Campbell, to show students that it is possible to live, work and be successful in the Mahoning Valley, says Cheryl McArthur, business manager for Campbell City Schools and on-site district administrator for the forthcoming cultural center.
Having students hear local success stories helps reverse the negative mindset that “nothing good comes from Youngstown,” McArthur says.
