Treasurer Sprague Announces December Compass Award Honoree

COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague has announced Sinclair Community College as the Compass Award honoree for the month of December. The monthly recognition program commends organizations, programs, and individuals across the state who are working to guide Ohioans toward financial literacy and empowerment.

“As our December Compass Award honoree, Sinclair Community College has proven to demonstrate a commitment to preparing students for financial success during their years in school and beyond,” said Sprague. “Sinclair is making a difference in the community through a variety of personal finance resources and strategic partnerships, and we’re proud to recognize their efforts.”

Sinclair Community College places a special focus on preparing students for life after college. Students have access to a variety of interactive and innovative resources aimed at improving their understanding of personal financial management. Areas of instruction cover topics like housing, budgeting, saving, investing, and managing tuition and student loan expenses.

Through its partnership with the University of Dayton and the UD Sinclair Academy program, the college is also helping students work toward multiple four-year degree pathways.

Sinclair Community College has also established a statewide presence through its Advance Job Training program, which offers education and skills training in all of the state’s prisons and six juvenile facilities. Enrollment in the program has more than doubled since 2020, and more than 15,600 certificates and degrees have been earned under the initiative over the past decade.
