CORPs Project @ Okaw Valley
Community Occupational Research Partnerships
Explanation- The CORP Project is a partnership between OV CUSD #302 and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville. This opportunity to give back to our local community is very important to us. We also recognize the amazing educational opportunity we have with each encounter working for the Corps. Students throughout the District have had the opportunity to contribute to this partnership.
The District received the 2016 National Excellence in Partnership Award recognizing the agreement and the many hours students have put in to forward the mission of US Army CORP of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville.
