President’s Report

SSAS is an award winning society

We are very excited to share that the Stadium Scholarship Alumni Society has been named the Society of the Year for 2017. This award is given to the one society who exemplifies the mission of The Ohio State University Alumni Association (OSUAA) and The Ohio State University with volunteer efforts that exceed expectations and excel in all areas.  This is one of three awards presented to SSAS at the recent OSUAA Leadership Symposium.  In addition to this award, we were awarded with Program of the Year for our Capes for Kids event.  Over 60 people came together to make capes to be given to young patients at Nationwide Children’s Hospitals to help them to feel like the superheroes that they each are.  Finally we were also named as to have Scarlet Status as an Outstanding Alumni Society.  Present to accept the awards were board members and officers Kristy Mount, Len Kummerer, Mary Ann Heft and Sue Kaczmarek.

In addition to the awards, we were invited to address the Ohio State Alumni Association Board of Directors.  As president of SSAS, I went before the board to share a summary of our year.  Additionally, board members asked questions not only about our programming but also about the needs that we still have to continue to excel.  I was able to share with them the excellent services and support that we receive from Craig Little, Heidi Glanzman and others at OSUAA.

We were happy to accept the awards in the name of all alumni and would like to thank you for the continued support and participation.  Please know that the SSAS board does not plan to rest on these laurels.  Plans are in place for an equally amazing 2017-2018 year.  Read other articles in the newsletter to find out about the many events being planned and also check our website often for more information and for new events that will come up.  We invite your participation to help us continue to be our best.  We especially hope that you will mark your calendar to join us on the evening of March 3 for our Celebration of the 85th Year of the Stadium Scholarship Program.
