Business Partners Dinner held

A large crowd of business leaders from Clermont County met for dinner at the Early Childhood Education Center at Clermont Northeastern Tuesday, Oct. 27. The CNE Local Schools hosted the third annual Business Partners Dinner to honor those businesses and organization who partner with them throughout the year and invite others to share in the support.

“The board has done a tremendous job of helping to find ways to work with local businesses,” said Superintendent Neil Leist. “Staff and teachers at CNE are going in the right direction. Eighty percent of what we have done creating partnerships has been through the help of Clermont Chamber of Commerce and we appreciate their assistance.”

Leist estimated that more than 140 were in attendance at the dinner. Heather Powell, principal of the middle school, acted as emcee for the event.
