Ohio High School Athletic Association
Commissioner Dan Ross, Ph. D.


Dan is the ninth commissioner of the Ohio High School Athletic Association.  His passion and enthusiasm for secondary education, combined with his tireless efforts to promote the important role that interscholastic athletics and extracurricular programs play for students, have helped the OHSAA become one of the most respected high school associations in the country.

Ross has extensive experience as a school administrator in Ohio, having served as a superintendent, principal, teacher, counselor and coach for 30 years, and he also has experience as a college instructor, in manufacturing and as a contest official.

Ross is a native of Portsmouth and graduated from Columbus St. Charles High School in 1967.  He earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Ohio Dominican College in 1971.

Look for our new feature "Parting Shot" at the end of this newsletter for the picture of the week. 

Join us at noon on Mondays at:
The Boat House at Confluence Park
679 W. Spring Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215

Join Leaders - Exchange Ideas - Take Action

 

 
 

Calling all Rotarians, Families and Friends.  Come enjoy the early part of your day with us. 

We need volunteers through out the day to help in the Rotary INFO booth, to act as timers for the Team Challenge and other small rolls.  None of these rolls will require your assistance for the entire event.  Contact Mark LaMonte or Scott Brown to volunteer.

ImageColumbus Rotary began recognizing member participation in addition to attendance at weekly luncheons using a program called Touch Points. To date participation in events other than weekly meetings were recorded only when information was made available to the club office. This will not change, however, members can now record their participation easily by going to the website www.ColumbusRotary.org. Relatively, the Touch Points will be awarded to members as follows:

•       1 touch point for attendance at weekly meetings, club socials, project/committee/Board/District/RI meetings, etc.
•       2 touch points for being an active volunteer at a Rotary function, chair committee/meetings, etc.
•       3 touch points for contributing at least $250 to Columbus Foundation or Paul Harris fellow, $100 to the RI foundation/Polio Plus or other fund raisers
•       4 touch points for every new member you sponsor that joins the club and pays dues for at least one year

For every Rotarian that achieves 52 touch points in a Rotary year, a “Perfect Participation” award will be made. This award will be added to our annual Perfect Attendance Awards. Recognition will be similar to the Perfect Attendance recognition.  

The awarding of Touch Points will be on the honor system. Each member determines the number of TPs they are eligible for and submits this information to the club on the club website. Doug Gouty, First Vice President Tricia Strahler and Scott Brown have made entering this data easy on the club website. I am sure there will be issues and we will use this year to evaluate and change as needed. Please bear with us as we are going through this change.

Congratulations to Columbus Rotary's Veteran Mentoring Initiative upon helping OSU obtain this special partnership.

Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State University has been selected by the Pat Tillman Foundation as a University Partner in its Tillman Military Scholars program. The program provides educational scholarships for veterans, active-duty service members and their spouses. As part of the Tillman Military Scholars program, Ohio State joins an elite network of institutions providing innovative support services to our nation’s veterans and their families.

University Partners are chosen based on their ability to meet criteria that include a culture of support for veterans across the institution, specific support services for veterans and a significant military/veteran enrollment.

 
 

On July 9, 2012 President Jim Maniace announced to members attending the Club's Monday luncheon that this would be our last weekly meeting at the Hyatt Regency.  Responding to a number of suggestions and positive comments from members and committees the Club Board voted to move the weekly meetings to The River Club at Confluence Park; 679 W. Spring Street as soon as possible.

Starting on July 16, 2012 the Club will meet weekly at the River Club.  Large signature events, such as the Service Above Self Fair, will be held at the Hyatt Regency.

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
