Traveling to New York to see the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, Come From Away, Shirley Brooks-Jones relived the touching display of kindness and humanity shown by the people of Gander, Newfoundland when 38 planes were ordered to land unexpectedly following the attacks on 9/11. Shirley was instrumental in founding the Lewisporte Area Flight 15 Scholarship Fund at the Foundation to give back to the community that opened its arms to so many. Come From Away will be coming to Columbus in Spring 2019.

The Columbus Foundation is working to capture The Spirit of Columbus through images that showcase the determination, dedication, and commitment of people in our smart + open community.
