Ohio State students had a photo opportunity with Heisman trophy winners Archie Griffin, Eddie George, and Tim Brown after the Office of Student Life special event “Life of Excellence.” During the program the football stars shared insights into living a well-rounded life. “You can’t stay in your comfort zone. Get out of it and you can accomplish great things,” Griffin told the crowd.
Congratulations to all the hardworking students landing on the honor roll at Harambee Christian School and beyond! Keep up the great work.
Columbus has an international reputation for thoughtful food and spirits, and Food Conscious Columbus celebrates both, like they did in a recent lunch at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams test kitchen, featuring food selected by Local Matters and Dan The Baker, two local treasures. Great food was combined with great philanthropy, as Food Conscious Columbus raised $1,000 for Local Matters through this (delicious, organic, local) luncheon!
