Nancy Case and Carol Higgins of the Transitional Workforce Department are also recipients of an award of $15,000 from The Harry C. Moores Foundation to the Columbus State Development Foundation for their project, OTAP for Youth (Orientation to Trades and Apprenticeships). The funds will help the department provide OTAP services to youth who are not supported with TANF program funding.
Did you know?The Staff Advisory Council (SAC) has added a page to its Web site called "Did-You-Know?" It lists the many extras available to Columbus State employees, including employee discounts, health services and massages. Items will be added as SAC is made aware of them. If you know of an employee extra that is not listed, email SAC using the comment box on the site. SAC meets every month on the second Thursday, from 2–4 p.m., and any Columbus State staff member is welcome to attend.
