COLUMBUS – Last week, State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) testified before the Ohio House Committee on Transportation and Public Safety on behalf of House Bill 88. The bill would grant Cuyahoga Valley Career Center a specialty license plate and give the school additional funding to be used for the expansion of programs benefiting the students. The plates cost an additional $40 to purchase, of which $30 goes to the school for the benefit or expansion of mental health and well-being programs.

“The bill would allow the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center to maintain and expand their mental health and wellness offerings,” said Rep. Anielski. “The wellbeing of the school’s students will be well served with these additional funds.”

Celena Roebuck, Superintendent of CVCC, said, “Now, through this legislation, the CVCC community can carry their support across the country on a specialized Ohio license plate. That the proceeds from the purchase of the plate go toward student health and wellness is a perfect way to demonstrate that CVCC is a healthy life choice and show that furthering the wellness of students is of great importance to CVCC’s efforts."

The bill now awaits consideration by the entire House of Representatives where all 99 members will vote on it.
