GALION, OH - Two new courses at Galion High School are challenging students and helping prepare them for college and beyond.

At the start of the 2017-2018 school year, Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Integrated Productions Technology were introduced.

Instructor Bobby Gossum stated, "The Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management program is essentially a business problem-solving course. Students learn about supply chains for selected resources and use that knowledge to manage the logistics of that good or service." It essentially encompasses the planning stages of the transportation of a product across the globe in a company's supply chain.

Of the Integrated Productions Technology course, instructor John Denoon said, "Integrated Productions Technology is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) on steroids. The course is designed for freshmen through seniors, and prepares students for their choice of college or a career after high school." It offers students the complexities of the workplace such as making decisions on the spot, working out problems that occur without notice, and working in teams by depending on each other to fulfill obligations.

The school district implemented these courses as a way to provide more advanced career-type courses for Galion students.

Paul Wheeler, Director of Academics, Assessment, and Federal Programs, stated, "As high school is a time of discovery in regard to future and career planning, we wanted to increase the number of choices that we provide students that have a direct impact on their career options. We are able to provide high level, project-based, real-world courses for all students, and these fields have career options, especially in the areas of manufacturing, technology, and supply chain management."
