Hancock County’s Earn-and-Learn Program Focuses on Veterans

The Ohio Department of Veterans Services has released this video featuring Justin Bennett, a military veteran and recent graduate of Hancock County’s manufacturing apprenticeship program. Bennett is now employed full-time at Simona PMC, a thermoplastic products manufacturer in Findlay.

The video spotlights the work of OMA-endorsed sector partnership Raise the Bar Hancock County. Tricia Valasek, executive director of Raise the Bar, says the Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Program is a good fit for members of the military who are transitioning to civilian life, as well as veterans looking to grow their skills. 7/27/2021
