Liz Deskins, Media Specialist at Bradley High School, Ohio Master Teacher, and chair of the Hilliard Master Teacher Committee, has won the 2015 Outstanding Contributor Award through the Ohio Educational Library Media Association (OELMA). The award, given each year, “recognizes an Ohio licensed school librarian who has made outstanding contributions to school librarianship. The honoree has demonstrated a long-term commitment to the school library profession, while serving in OELMA leadership roles.” Liz currently serves as the organization’s vice president, and will take on the role of president in 2016. Through OELMA, she both gathers, and shares, cutting edge skills in inquiry, technology, and literacy, and brings them back to Hilliard teachers and students to help empower them to be ready for tomorrow.
Since graduating from Hilliard Darby High School Colin Blankenship has worked on hit television shows such as Cougar Town and Unfriended. This month he was in town working on a Bruce Willis movie. While here, he spent time with the Rock Band students at the ILC. He talked about his life and career working in the TV and Film Industries. His key message to the class was to find out what fits. He said classes being offered today at the ILC would be beneficial, giving students the chance to learn what their true passions are, before being out in the world. Giving students the opportunity to work with professionals outside the classroom help prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
