The Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools held its 7th Annual Conference at the Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio. Bill Young, administrator of Cruiser Academy, was on hand to receive an award while at the conference. The theme of this year's event was "Educate, Collaborate, Celebrate." Those words fit perfectly with the work going on at Cruiser Academy. For last year’s academic performance, Cruiser Academy received an Honorable Mention award, which means that they received an "A" or "B" rating in two-thirds of the measures. Cruiser Academy is in the top 20% in the State of Ohio for Dropout Recovery schools.
Superintendent, Monique Hamilton had this to say, "Over the years, Cruiser Academy staff has worked diligently to design a program that is challenging for our students. We are proud of both staff and students in their efforts which have ultimately made our school a success."
Young was excited to be recognized among the top 11 Dropout Prevention schools. He gladly received the award on behalf of all students and staff at Cruiser Academy that work every day to pursue their dreams. He stated, "I believe this recognition honors the work that our students, and staff do on a daily basis to pursue academic excellence."
Amon Dobbins, Guidance Counselor at Cruiser Academy, continued by saying, "Nothing, outside of yourself, keeps you from achieving your dreams."
