Cleveland Clinic Banner School 2019-2020

The Cleveland Clinic has recognized Pickaway-Ross teacher Tammy Tipton for her work with its Worldwide Classroom program. 

Tipton, who teaches Pickaway-Ross' Allied Health magnet program, was lauded for using the Cleveland Clinic's program with students in her Introduction to Health Tech class at Logan Elm High School.

"It's a designated time and a live feed so I'm only able to offer it right now at Logan Elm but I would love to offer it to my Allied Health students," Tipton said of what was dubbed Technology Tuesdays.

The program provides Tipton's students — with students from other Ohio schools — the opportunity to interact with health professionals such as a physician's assistant, physical therapist, nurse practitioner and a nutritionist to learn about different fields of study.

Tipton's Logan Elm class was among those in the program named a Cleveland Clinic Banner School, a distinction earned by fewer than 24 percent of the 264 schools in 10 states that participated in Cleveland Clinic's K–12 Education School Programs during the 2019-2020 school year.
