Several districts in the region, including those in Celina, are returning to school this morning.

Starting at 4:30 a.m., News Center 7’s Adam Marshall will be in Celina, where he’ll take a look at how the district is recovering from the Memorial Day tornadoes that ripped through the area.

He’ll also tell us about the recently built $24 million Tri-Star Career Center that students will be returning to on their first day. The center provides technical training, and it services Mercer and Auglaize counties.

"This great facility here at Tri-Star, we were involved with the planning... organization with the schools," said Chief Douglas Wolters of the Celina Fire Department.

While at the facility, Adam will give viewers a look inside the building and talk to school officials about some of the programs they offer.
