Nichole Coleman, Class of 1990
“Findlay City Schools does an incredible job creating and administering programs that offer opportunities for students with different needs, interests and talents. Thanks to the tour of the Millstream programs at a young age our daughter decided to participate in the Millstream Culinary program. With hands-on training and mentoring from the instructor she quickly narrowed her career path to baking and pastry arts. The guidance and time that Mrs. Greiner puts into her students’ lives is remarkable and makes such a huge impact on their lives. My husband and I will be forever grateful for the tools Findlay City Schools and the Millstream program gave us in raising our daughter.”
Torri Coleman, Class of 2011
“The Millstream Culinary program is how I decided what career path I wanted to follow. It gave me the opportunity to understand how the industry works and with my ServSafe certificate I was able to get a good job right out of high school. The education was a good combination of book work and hands-on training, I’m glad it wasn’t just one or the other. I have went on to continue my education and will graduate with my Associate’s Degree in Baking and Pastry Arts December 16, 2012, only 18 months after I graduated from Findlay High School. Thank you Findlay City Schools and Mrs. Greiner.”
Bethany Maynard, Class of 2009
“The skills I learned in the Honors Mentorship both my junior and senior year have proved invaluable in my internships, and other interactions with the Cincinnati corporate world – it truly is a great program!“
Laura Moses Julien, Class of 1983
“Findlay High School was a life changer for me. Education did not start out to be something that I was exceptional at or wanted to be good at, however, as I progressed through high school taking a variety of classes including Millstream Business classes, general ed, vocational, theatre, and co-op classes…a lightbulb went off that showed me the direction that I should go in order to be successful. Today, I work at Findlay City Schools as Webmaster and I also teach Web Development at Findlay High School & Millstream Career Center. I know, without a doubt, that the choices I made after graduation were a direct reflection on the many choices of outstanding classes and faculty at Findlay High School.”
Teresa J. Line – Class of 1978
“I am a 1978 graduate of FHS and C.O.E. co-op program with Mr. Wohlgamuth (known today as Millstream). My co-op employment was with Whirlpool Corporation…after graduation, I filled in for the secretary that I shadowed while she went on vacation. While I was filling in for the secretary on vacation, a position came open in the Personnel Department…I interviewed and was hired. I held various secretarial positions within my 14 years of service with Whirlpool Corporation, before leaving to become a stay-at-home mom.”
Dawn Thomas Rose – Class of 1998
“I graduated in 1998 from FHS. I had many great experiences in the music department during my years at FHS. I was involved in marching band, orchestra, choirs, VIP, FFE, and the musicals. I have many wonderful memories of my years at FHS. My favorite teacher was Mr. Damon, best history teacher!!”
Pam Hamlin – Class of 1989
“As a 1989 FHS grad and now a Principal at Bigelow and Northview schools, I continue to be proud of my Alma Mater. I strive to provide a rich learning environment for my students just as I received going through the system. Findlay City Schools has given me the skills needed to be successful. I am now lucky enough to give back to those who gave to me. I am proud to say I am a TROJAN!”
Jeremy Logsdon – Class of 2005
“Though there are some things I would like to have changed during my high school years I can honestly say I’ve had some of the best times of my life participating in the music programs available. Choir, VIP, marching band, concert band, music tech, and Pantasia (by far the best group to be a part of) introduced me to a lot of great people. In fact I was talking with my co-worker Andy once about how the Freshman are supposed to be in their own wing and closed off from the rest of the high school. My freshman year I did not feel any smaller or less important than the upperclassmen even though we had our own wing of classrooms. I attribute this to the fact that I met many new friends my age and also upperclassmen during band camp, before school even started. I didn’t even want to go to band camp but my mom forced me to, since I had already signed up. Marching band turned out to be a great experience and I loved every performance. In short, I believe the music department helped shape my high school experience into a much more enjoyable one.”
