Some of the recipients included state senators Tim Bivins, Dan Rutherford, and Edward Maloney. In the House of Representatives, Suzi Bassi, Bill Black, and Tom Cross were among the individuals applauded for their efforts.

Sinclair Community College – Among the Lowest Tuition Rates in Ohio

An experienced lawyer and teacher, Kyle Kirts has worked in the legal field in both Illinois and Ohio. Before opening up a private practice in Dayton, Mr. Kirts worked as staff counsel in the Illinois House of Representatives as well as a lobbyist for the state’s Fraternal Order of Police. He received his juris doctor from the School of Law at the University of Dayton. Since 2010, Kyle Kirts has served as an adjunct faculty member at Sinclair Community College.

Of Ohio colleges, Sinclair Community College is notable for offering some of the lowest tuition rates in the state. The college has made a commitment not only to providing students with affordable tuition but offering them financial support as well. In fact, the school awards $80 million annually in scholarships and aid.

Recently, the college phased in a slight increase in its tuition to support rising technological costs. However, even with the added expense, the tuition for students, especially for those inside the county, is still among Ohio’s lowest. Yearly tuition rates are set between $2,400 and $3,800, while online classes are offered at $7.50 per credit-hour.
