Believe in Ohio was co-founded by John Klipfell, a former Strongsville resident, and helps students understand the importance of a STEM education and entrepreneurial mindset if they are to become competitors in Ohio's Innovation Economy of the future. It does this through engagement with STEM and entrepreneurial experts and mentors, and participation in STEM Commercialization Plan and STEM Business Plan competitions in which students compete for nearly $2 million in cash awards and scholarships. The program inspires students to pursue their education and careers in Ohio by introducing them to Ohio's robust R&D and entrepreneurial ecosystem that offers great opportunities for them to create their future.
Strongsville High School students will compete locally on March 12 for thousands in prize money, with the opportunity to advance to regional and state competitions. There is quite a need for judges for this event and, we invite the professionals/parents of Strongsville to help take part in the process. Our Believe in Ohio program is also looking for professionals to help mentor students during their research and assembly of their Commercialization/Business Plan.
Dear Parents, Guardians and Staff:
High School administration was notified this morning of a threatening post appearing on Street Chat late yesterday afternoon. The post alleged a shooting threat to take place this morning around 8:00 a.m. at Strongsville High School. While the original post had been removed, a parent notified administrators after being informed by their child of the posting. The school resource officer was notified and six Strongsville police officers were dispatched to the high school, as well as all staff being put on alert.
There is an ongoing investigation, during which a police presence will remain at the high school. Administrators are working with Street Chat to identify the author of the threatening post.

On Tuesday, January 20, at 9:15am, police officers from Brecksville, Montville, Parma, Walton Hills, Macedonia, and Strongsville arrived at Strongsville High School with eight specially trained dogs that are employed to detect narcotics and other illegal substances. The dogs examined randomly selected areas of the high school campus that included book bags, classrooms, lockers, restrooms, and the parking lot. During this search, there were three separate discoveries of marijuana and paraphernalia in the student parking lot. All students involved in these discoveries are being dealt with according to our student code of conduct.
In an effort to send the message that illegal activity will not be tolerated, Mr. Mark Smithberger, the high school principal, initiated this search. These types of random searches take place throughout the year. Steve Breckner, Assistant Principal, said school officials were “very pleased with the cooperation of the students and the staff during the search.”
