Summit seeks strategies

panel guests
At the second Regional Summit on College Access and Attainment, held Tuesday in the Conference Center, more than 150 local educators came together to discuss three major topics and create a working plan for future meetings. The day kicked off with a panel discussion on current initiatives, which included Columbus State President Dave Harrison, Dr. Gene Harris, superintendent of Columbus Public Schools, Dr. Kathy Krendl, president of Otterbein College, and Dr. Bill Wise, superintendent, South-Western City Schools. The attendees then broke into three working groups for data collection, curriculum alignment, and college access—and determined the next steps for regional goals and strategies.

Saying farewell!
