We Support Our Current and Future Military Families!

Buckeye Career Center is proud to be one of Ohio's 511 active Purple Star schools! The honor was designated on April 17, 2023. Buckeye Career Center Superintendent Bob Alsept takes pride in the district's achievement. “The greatest support we can give is to the brave men and women protecting our freedoms. If we can give them comfort by making sure their families are taken care of, then that is a small task that we are proud to complete,” he said.

The Purple Star Designation is given by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) to schools that show a major commitment to students and families connected to the United States military. BCC is required to have a staff point of contact for military students and families who serves as the primary liaison. BCC must also have a dedicated page on its website to provide resources for military families. 

Liaison: Mr. Tim Vandeborne, Project Lead the Way/ Engineering instructor
Participation in this initiative was sparked by Tim Vandeborne, who is a U.S. Army veteran. Mr. Vandeborne is available to speak with any student who is considering the military, any student who has already enlisted, or any BCC student who has a family member who is in the military. He can be reached at 330.339.2288 ext. 1537 or by email at [email protected].
