Thanks for your commitment
The Pharos-Tribune gives this Rose to Ola Titus:
Having worked there more than 20 years, Ola Titus is an institution at Cass Area Transit.
She was on the job from the very beginning of the organization. And now that she’s retiring, it’s a much different company. She was there as the company grew from two buses to 24, and from two drivers to 34.
“I’ve made this my lifetime,” she said.
In today’s economy where job hopping is the norm, Titus showed commitment to an organization and its success.
Great job, Ola, and enjoy your retirement.
The more graduates the merrier we’ll be
The Pharos-Tribune give this Rose to Logansport High School:
With a numbers released recently by the state, Logansport High School can now boast a 91.1 percent graduation rate. That’s up more than 7 percentage points above last year.
Michele Starkey, superintendent of Logansport Community School Corp., credited a team effort. The corporation is working with students to help more of them reach graduation. It’s established an alternative program and provided multiple remedial opportunities. Not every one learns the same way, and the corporation’s changes show its commitment to getting diplomas in all students’ hands.
Today’s job market is hard enough. Our young adults have a much smaller chance at success without a diploma. LHS is doing what it can to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Happy Birthday, United Way
The Pharos-Tribune gives this birthday Rose to the United Way of Cass County:
Seventy-five years of helping residents of Cass County — it’s almost hard to imagine how much work has gone into and come out of the United Way of Cass County in that amount of time.
As an organization itself and through fund distribution, United Way has helped countless families and individuals. Whether it’s food provision or educational support, United Way has been there for our children.
Kudos also goes out to the community for its outpouring of support over those 75 years. We’re better because of United Way and you.
Thanks for your commitment
