Success Stories

For some, the path to success has a few turns. That was the case for Anthony Loehl, a 2012 graduate of Oak Hills High School and the Diamond Oaks Pre-Engineering program.

Loehl spent his time at Great Oaks learning advanced manufacturing and took a job with a manufacturer during his senior year.  After high school, he went to Cincinnati State to study civil engineering.  A change in the program, though, convinced him to set off in a new direction.  “I left school and took a job as a bowling mechanic, repairing pinsetting machines,” he said.  “It was a pretty relaxed job.”

But then he got a call that set him toward a lifelong career goal.
