Mt. Healthy City School District Extends Partnership with LSI

The Mt. Healthy City School District and LSI Industries are continuing a partnership to benefit both Mt. Healthy High School students and the Blue Ash company.  The project gives students the opportunity to assemble LED light fixtures, and perform other essential jobs, throughout the manufacturing plant.  Once assembled, the company’s light fixtures are quality-tested, boxed and shipped to consumers.

Recently, Mt. Healthy CSD administrators toured LSI to gain a better understanding of the skills taught, and opportunities provided, to participating students. Currently, LSI employs five co-op students, giving them real-world experience in a STEM environment. In addition to practical work experience, the program helps students develop their problem-solving, communication and leadership skills. 

“This is a great opportunity for our students to display their leadership skills and learn in a real-world environment,” stated Dr. Reva Cosby, Mt. Healthy City Schools Superintendent.

“Manufacturing is the backbone of our economy, and this is a great way to get students excited about making things in America,” said Jim Clark, President and CEO of LSI Industries. “With 22 students involved in the program at our Blue Ash plant this year, we’re delighted to help the next generation of employees gain important skills that will benefit them, and the country, in the future.”

Both the Mt. Healthy City School District and LSI plan to continue the program, which offers students employment and hands-on industry experience.
