Ohio Connections Academy recognizes New Paris student

COLUMBUS — Halle Osborne of New Paris was recently named one of Ohio Connections Academy’s (OCA) Star Students of the Month for October in recognition of her achievements and leadership in the virtual classroom.

Osborne, a junior at the statewide online public charter school, was nominated by her teacher and student council advisor Mrs. Velie because of her commitment to making the school a better place for all the students. As a Star Student, Osborne will be presented a certificate recognizing her achievement and be profiled in Ohio Connections Academy’s student newsletter and on the school’s website.

Osborne came to Ohio Connections Academy in 2012 when her family moved to Ohio. She previously attended Indiana Connections Academy so the transition to a different school was very easy. Halle said attending an online school requires students to have discipline to stay on track, something she feels will help her in college. She also appreciates the “one-of-a-kind interaction” she has with other students and her teachers from all over the state.

“The faculty, staff and members of the board at Ohio Connections Academy are proud to recognize students like Halle and the commitment they demonstrate to our school and their community,” said OCA Superintendent Marie Hanna. “Each of our Star Students are leaders in the classroom and demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to learning – they truly deserve this recognition.”
