 Visionary Dreamer award presented at First Wednesday

B. Smith-Allen and T. Brooks

Barbara Smith-Allen, Student Advocacy Center coordinator, was presented with a 2019 Visionary Dreamer award for her long-time commitment to the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at Columbus State. She established the partnership between the College and Ohio State University 30 years ago, one year after she joined Columbus State. That partnership has led to prominent individuals being selected to serve as keynote speakers during the celebration at both institutions. In addition, she has maintained support for the event over its full 30-year history. Terrence Brooks, senior director of Student Engagement, Leadership and Inclusion, presented Smith-Allen with the award during yesterday’s First Wednesday. Brooks said she has worked tirelessly over the years to guarantee both institutions have a well-known speaker for their respective MLK events.

In addition, Columbus City Council recognized the College’s 30-year history with the event, and Smith-Allen specifically, in a formal resolution which was presented to her after it was signed by each council member.

Making News

Partnership with Amazon Web Services

A Columbus State partnership is in the news. Todd Warner, executive in residence for workforce innovation talked to the Columbus Dispatch about our partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop a cloud computing degree. Columbus State is among the first community colleges in the nation to develop an associate degree program with AWS. The partnership is made possible by a nearly $589,000 National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education grant. Read the Columbus Dispatch story here.  

Women in Hospitality

An event, Women In Hospitality, which was held last Thursday, February 28 at the YMCA, was covered in the news by a reporter from Columbus Business First. Columbus State organized the event. Read the story here.

OACC president & CEO reacts to Gov. DeWine’s address

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine delivered his first State of the State address Tuesday. While he has not unveiled his full budget proposal for each department, the governor has indicated that he will be supportive of technical training and associate degrees. Jack Hershey, president and CEO of the Ohio Association of Community Colleges (OACC), issued this statement following the State of the State address:

“Governor DeWine laid out a solid vision for Ohio’s future, one that relies heavily on strengthening workforce training efforts to get people into rewarding jobs and careers.

The Governor’s embrace of industry certificates marks a notable turn in the state’s higher education policy away from a decades-long message that the only way to a successful career is through earning a bachelor’s degree to one that acknowledges and promotes the crucial role of employer-driving short-term training programs as pathways to meaningful, self-sustaining careers.

Ohio’s community colleges understand we are ground zero in the Governor’s call for the most aggressive workforce development effort our state has ever seen, and we look forward to working with his administration to fulfill his vision.”

Be part of the Legacy Dinner next Saturday

Legacy Dinner graphic
Columbus State’s award-winning culinary apprenticeship program has deep roots. It began more than 40 years ago with the late Siegbert “Ziggy” Allespach. The German-born Allespach became an executive chef at the Sheraton Hotel in Columbus before opening Ziggy’s Continental in Upper Arlington.

In 1977, Chef Allespach made a phone call to Carol Kizer, who was then the chairwoman of the college’s hospitality management program, about an apprenticeship model for aspiring chefs. That launched the College’s Chef Apprenticeship Program which allows culinary students to spend most of their time in restaurant kitchens, not classrooms.

Since then, hundreds of students have graduated from the program. Some have gone on to open their own restaurants. Others have become high-ranking culinary executives within the food industry. The common ingredient in their careers is Columbus State.

The annual Legacy Dinner honors Chef Allespach along with the past, present, and future of the program. A five-course dinner with wine pairings will follow champagne and hors d’oeuvres. The event will also include a silent auction. It will be held Saturday, March 16 at 6:00 p.m. in WD Conference Center Ballroom.

Tickets can be purchased here. They are $125 each or $1,250 for a table of eight. If you have questions, you may contact the Columbus State Foundation at extension 2436.
