Herzing student earns Ohio Workforce Scholarship
Herzing University-Toledo student Michael Hinojosa is one of 19 college students statewide to earn a Workforce Tuition Scholarship awarded by the Ohio Association of Career Colleges and Schools (OACCS).
The statewide association awarded the scholarships through a competitive process. The grants assist individuals who attended a career college or school in Ohio. Herzing University-Toledo was one of the participating institutions that contributed to the scholarship fund. OACCS created the scholarship program in 2011 and distributed $24,500 for this academic term.
“Herzing University is committed to helping its students obtain scholarships to help offset the cost of what we consider to be an investment in their future,” said Greg Guzmán, president of Herzing University’s Toledo campus. “We congratulate Michael on his outstanding accomplishment.”
“Ohio’s career colleges and schools are committed to putting higher education within reach of people who desire knowledge and training necessary to obtain a job in a challenging economy,” added R. David Rankin, OACCS executive director.
Students must use the funds for tuition, fees, and supplies directly related to the cost of education and training. To maintain eligibility, students are required to maintain a GPA if 3.0 or better and a 90 percent attendance record.
Serving the local community since 2009, Herzing University-Toledo boasts state-of-the-industry classrooms and labs to provide a real-world, hands-on learning environment consistent with its “career-focused, convenient, and caring” educational mission.

Herzing University to host Levy Info Night
Herzing University is hosting a non-partisan levy information night in order to give voters a convenient way to educate themselves on a number of property tax issues on the Nov. 6, 2012 ballot. Toledo voters face seven ballot issues, while five of those will be on the ballot Lucas County-wide.
Lucas County voters have a one-stop opportunity to pick up levy-related information and chat one-on-one with agency officials on their way home from work, school, etc. Each of the seven levy campaigns will be represented. The auditor’s office also has confirmed attendance with the ability to calculate on-site the total potential property tax increase for individual property owners.
“Herzing University recently hosted a public voter registration drive and signed up -#- of new voters,” said Greg Guzmán, president of the Toledo campus. “But as an institution of higher education, having informed voters is just as important to us as people exercising their right to vote.”
