It was a busy three days at Port Clinton High School as hundreds of students and student council advisors from across the state came to Port Clinton. Community members opened up their homes to help house and transport students throughout the three day event.

Students attended many small group work sessions, shared ideas, and received recognition during the event. Both middle school and high school level student council representatives attend the conference. On Friday evening, the Port Clinton High School gymnasium was transformed for the dinner banquet. Following dinner, students and chaperones went to Port Clinton Middle School for a dance.

The event was a year in the making. The Port Clinton City School District In-Service day was planned on April 25 around the conference. PCHS Leadership Council members and advisors Scott Cross and Mike Spencer organized the conference down to every detail. The theme, “Come Sail Away” was consistent throughout the event, from the banquet centerpieces by Otto & Urban to the snack cart made to look like a sailboat.

“The Best of Times, the Worst of Times”

There has been much said on the future economic development of Port Clinton that will impact the future of Port Clinton and the surrounding area. There is a lively debate every Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. at Common Grounds Coffee Shop, initiated by our local newspaper, The Beacon. It is entitled, “Coffee with the Editor.” Concerned citizens voice their opinion and suggestions on a wide variety of subjects, most seem to be concentrated on the revitalization of the downtown and adjacent areas of the community. This is an informal group that is monitored by the Editor, Jasmine Cupp.

Several of these discussions have included local official’s names and organizations that the citizens feel should be accountable for their actions, or lack thereof. Many credible surveys have been conducted to determine what the people really feel about the future of their community. It seems to be apparent that they want to have a vibrant community that was once Port Clinton. The community, as a whole, agrees that doing nothing achieves nothing. 

There are several community business leaders that are working behind the scenes to achieve the results that the community, so deservedly, have voiced their opinions on. These groups will be working with our elected officials to achieve the goals that you have set forth. More will be forthcoming in future announcements on these initiatives.
