U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited Butler Tech on April 12, touring the campus and speaking at their Manufacturing Recognition and Signing Day Celebration.
Participating students were recruited by 28 local businesses and will be signing their contracts during the private ceremony.
Butler Tech is one of Ohio’s largest career school systems and has been praised for working intensively with local industry to develop the trained and certified employees they need.
“We are excited that Education Secretary DeVos is joining us to celebrate our students who have obtained certifications and a set of skills through apprenticeships with local businesses,” Butler Tech Superintendent Jon Graft told the Dayton Daily News.
