A 5-County Transition Student Expo hosted by Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities and the Region 14 Transition County was held Friday in the atrium of Good News Gathering in Hillsboro. More than 300 high school juniors and seniors from 12 school districts across Highland, Adams, Brown, Fayette and Clinton counties gathered information and heard presentations from 28 employers and education institutions, learning a variety of tips on training and job hunting, according to Cynthia Crews with the Ohioans with Disabilities office. Crews said Friday’s event, which included morning and afternoon sessions, was the first of its kind for this region.
