Beck Applauds Local High School Senior 

COLUMBUS— Emma Higgins, from Carlisle High School, is the recipient of a $2,500 scholarship to attend Miami-Jacobs Career College in Criminal Justice, State Representative Peter Beck (R-Warren County) announced today.

State Representative Peter Beck nominated Emma for the Legislative Scholarship Program, sponsored by the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools in cooperation with 41 participating colleges and the Ohio General Assembly.

“I am delighted that I am able to help Emma pursue the dream of a college education at Miami-Jacobs Career College,” Rep. Beck said. “Career colleges and schools help Ohioans obtain the skills they need to secure an occupation in this trying economy.”

Students attending career colleges and schools account for about one-third of all students majoring in health and computer sciences—projected to be among the fasted-growing jobs through 2016, according to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
