Hilliard Way, Part Eight

It’s no secret that excellent schools attract quality businesses to a community. They also help maintain strong property values. In this video we hear from a local realtor and community member talk about how strong our housing market is, thanks in part to the strong schools. He says that in 2013 home sales in Hilliard outpaced every community in central Ohio. The fact that our schools help maintain a stronger local economy is the Hilliard Way.

Ohio Author Visits Weaver

Ohio author Michelle Houts visited with several Language Arts classes and a group of after school book club students at Weaver Middle School. She spoke about her books, research, and writing process. The students learned about the many rewrites it takes to make a story publishable, and they were inspired to read her books and check out her website.

This day is an opportunity for Ohioans to reflect upon the outstanding job performance of more than 15,000 school bus drivers who transport students to and from school and school-related events throughout the year. Here in Hilliard we have more than 100 bus routes each and every day. We are so proud of all our drivers and aides and we can’t say thank you enough. Please take a moment this week to thank one of our amazing drivers or aides.
