Senate certificate signed by Senator Faber and Beagle
The Achievement Center for Educational Success (ACES) was honored with a certificate of congratulations from the 130th General Assembly of the Ohio Senate for receiving the Marlin Thompson Grant and their work with the students in Darke County.

The certificate stated: “It is not surprising that the ACES Alternative Program has attained success, for it has displayed a sincere commitment to education and community improvement. Over the years, this exceptional organization has been tireless in its endeavors in behalf of students.”

Included with the certificate was a letter from Senator Beagle personally extending his congratulations to the staff for their work in the ACES Alternative Program. The staff includes Jeff Vaughn, program coordinator; Deron Johns, certified intervention specialist; and Marcia Schlechty, youth advocate.

ACES is administered by the Council on Rural Services in collaboration with the Darke County Educational Service Center and local school districts including Bradford Local School, Tri-Village Local Schools, Ansonia Local School, Versailles Schools, Franklin Monroe Local Schools, Arcanum Local Schools and Mississinawa Valley Schools in Darke County. The students receive their classroom instruction at the ACES Greenville location, but are awarded credits and diplomas from their home schools. All students must be referred to the program by their home school’s principal, to be considered for enrollment.
