New Philadelphia, Ohio - Skyline Champion Homes is partnering with Buckeye Career Center to host a barbeque for the members of the career center's Drug-Free Clubs of America chapter. 

The barbeque will be Friday, May 3rd, from 11 am to noon at BCC's main campus in New Philadelphia. Member students will be treated to burgers, sides, and ice cream courtesy of Skyline. Division Manager James Johnson says they wanted to support the chapter while also providing an incentive for the students. 

"We stand tall in our support of BCC and their students’ commitment to being drug-free,” he says.

BCC Principal Matt Fockler says he is thankful for Skyline’s willingness to provide an incentive to encourage students to remain drug-free while at home, school, and in the workplace.

“The Drug Free Clubs of America gives our students the opportunity to be a part of an organization that promotes and rewards their commitment to healthy decisions. Their membership shows prospective employers, colleges, and universities their responsibility and dedication to being individuals of high moral character,” he says.

Buckeye Career Center is still accepting monetary donations to help cover the chapter's expenses including random drug testing and incentives for club members. For more information, contact BCC Public Relations Coordinator Shyanne Carroll at 330-339-2288 ext. 1241 or
