Sinclair Community College welcomed more than 160 leaders from business, K-12, and higher education on Wednesday, March 22, 2023, for the SuccessBound 2023 Conference. Attendees participated in multiple breakout sessions focused on work-based learning, pre-apprenticeships, business advisory committees, career-technical programming for students with disabilities, and industry recognized credentials.

Sinclair hosted the SuccessBound 2023 Conference as a member of the Ohio Tech Prep West Region. This year’s theme was “Bringing Together Ohio’s Strong Business and Education Partners to Engage and Inspire Students.”

Meeker’s presentations include surprising insights, engaging personal stories, fun movie references, hands-on exercises and "Hollywood-esque" tools that everyone will remember and use long after the event ends.
