Greenville's Marketing Program Offers Experience for Students

Marketing 11 and 12 have been very busy this school year. All of our students are taking academic/business classes in the Greenville Career Technology Center, while some also play high school sports and hold down a marketing internship averaging 12-15 hours a week.

Currently, 93% of our Marketing students are employed by local businesses through out the Greenville community, and in several instances, students are holding down two internship jobs at the same time. We have students interning with business partners such as Versailles Health Care Center, Brethren Retirement Community, Scott D. Rudnick Law Firm, Splash and Dash, First Rate Industries, Greenville Technology Incorporated and Specialized Castings Industries. Other students are interning at our local food service establishments: McDonald’s, Arby’s, Bob Evans, Fairlawn Steak House as well as retailers: Furniture Express, Readmore’s Hallmark and COPES Distributing.

Ninety-one percent of Senior Marketing 12 students are planning on attending College or Technical School upon graduation this spring. We are also excited that we have become part of Tech Prep which is partnered with Sinclair Community College. This allows our senior students to become eligible for a $3000 college tuition scholarship to study business in Sinclair‘s College of business. Our students can then further develop their business skills and in many cases, continue their current employment. Its been a very exciting school year in Marketing for students as they continue to develop academically, gain valuable work experience, and develop skills in our community while they earn money.
