Community leaders who made extraordinary efforts in contributing to the welfare of central Ohioans were honored by the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) at the State of the Region Luncheon held May 4 at the Grand Battelle Ballroom in downtown Columbus.
President Moeller received the Regional Leadership Award, derived from the Commission's “continuing dedication to addressing issues that transcend community boundaries and to stimulating visionary thinking.”
First introduced in 1997, the Regional Leadership Award recognizes individuals in a 12-county region (Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Morrow, Pickaway, Ross and Union counties) who make extraordinary efforts to ensure the future viability of the region's communities.
At the ceremony, presenters said: “Val Moeller led the creation of the largest online education program in Ohio; she created the college's Community Education and Workforce Development Division to promote noncredit job and business training; she expanded the college to offer classes and degrees at a number of suburban sites in Franklin, Delaware, Madison, Pickaway and Union counties; and she initiated and led the effort to create Columbus State's new Delaware Campus.”

This red fox was captured on camera by wildlife photographer extraordinaire Elina Vayntraub, in the grass lot next to the 28S parking area, not far from the howling beagles in the Veterinary Technology kennels. The smart fox knows that there won’t be any horses and hounds chasing her here! Elina reports that this vixen was spotted earlier with four kits near her downtown den.

Lectures are not where they used to be 30 years ago, 10 years ago, or even 3 to 5 years ago. Students are changing, teachers are innovating, and technology is advancing. So we are going to have a day-long event focusing on one of the foundational elements of higher education: the lecture. Join us as we look at new strategies and new technologies from both the instructor's point of view and the student's perspective. Microlectures with Jing! Annotation with smart technologies! Student recall with Livescribe! And a lot more! Sign up now to attend! Lunch will be provided for attendees of this event.
Friday, May 21 (10a.m. – 4 p.m.) - Register
Want to ride the bus to the Delaware Grand Opening?
Columbus State will again offer our employees the opportunity to ride up to the new Delaware Campus on a tour bus, Monday, June 28, departing at 10 a.m. for the 11 a.m. ceremony. In order to get an accurate count for the bus(es), please email email@example.com with the subject line “Ride the Bus” and we will count you for a seat on the bus! (Important: June 28 is the first day of Summer Quarter, so the timing of the Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting of the Delaware Campus may not be ideal for some.)
The ceremony will include dedication of the new building, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, campus tours and an outdoor barbecue luncheon, to conclude at 3 p.m. Those who will want to leave earlier from the Grand Opening may want to drive separately.
In addition to the bus, the college encourages carpooling to the event.
