Gadfly Bites 5/7/18 - Not to worry

  1. Chad Aldis is on hand to discuss the 2018 Ohio gubernatorial primary with The 74 in this piece. At least, an aspect or two of them. (The 74 Million, 5/7/18) Chad’s contributions to this piece—on the education legacy of outgoing governor John Kasich—are more wide ranging, but just as insightful. (IdeaStream Public Media, Cleveland, 5/4/18)
  2. Away from politics and back in the real world, it’s nice to see seniors at the Ponitz Career Center in Dayton getting a look at options for after graduation. Employers, colleges, and branches of the military were all there at the second annual pre-graduation event, and motivational speakers helped boost students’ interest in a fulfilling and productive pathway after high school. Nice. (Dayton Daily News, 5/4/18)
  3. Finally today, an appreciation of the tremendous work of the Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund. The fund has provided needs-based scholarships for students to attend private schools in Toledo and surrounding areas for 20 years. Over $12 million in scholarships have been awarded, with much more to come. Amazing! (Toledo Blade, 5/7/18)
