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 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.”
