CCHE Celebration Tonight at Voyageur Brewing

Cook County Higher Education (CCHE) is holding a Celebration and Fundraiser at the Voyageur Brew Pub on Wednesday May 13 at 6:00 pm with free food, door prizes, and live music by Carah and Rod.

What is there to celebrate? In 2014 we: 

  • Offered 45 business workshops
  • Hosted 6 college courses
  • 1,365 people attended business training workshops
  • 75 students enrolled in certificate, diploma, or degree programs

Spring of 2015 is graduation time and we have some graduates to celebrate, including a great class of nursing assistants and LPN's, many of whom will be working at our local care facilities. All of this happens because CCHE offers programming and support services right here in Cook County – Education Where You Live!

At the celebration tonight we welcome you to informally tell your story of how CCHE has impacted you or the community.  This will be a time of relaxing, sharing, laughing, and of course celebrating.

Cook County School District Operating Levy Meeting Today

Cook County School District Operating Levy Meeting

Today, May 13, 2015

5:30-7:00 P.M.

Jane Mianowski Conference Center

Located in the Arrowhead Center for the Arts

The current Cook County School District voter-approved Operating Levy expires in December, 2015. At ISD 166, we are grateful to the voters for their current support. We see each day the impact of this investment on the children of Cook County. In order to maintain programming and continue to develop education excellence across Cook County, the District will ask voters to approve a new operating levy via referendum in November, 2015. To make sure we get this right, we are seeking input from all Cook County residents. The first 30 minutes of tonight's meeting will be a discussion of district priorities and proposed operating levy scenarios. The remainder of the meeting will be focused on generating ideas and exploring how people can help. There will be a variety of opportunities to choose from. Time commitments will range from a few hours to multiple days and tasks will be both behind-the-scenes and public. Please consider being an advocate for education in Cook County and join us tonight from 5:30-7:00 P.M in the Jane Mianowski Conference Center in the Arrowhead Center for the Arts.  For more information contact Superintendent Schwarz at 387-2271 ext. 612.
