Four Shawnee State University students were selected to represent at the Propel Ohio: Collegiate Summit 2015 on Friday, Oct. 16, at The Ohio State University.

In partnership with Ohio Campus Compact, the Corporation for National and Community Service, The Ohio State University, the GAR Foundation, University of Dayton, Print Syndicate, Nationwide and the John Glenn Civic Leadership Council, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown invited emerging student leaders from across Ohio to participate in Propel Ohio, a one-day leadership conference seeking to promote civic engagement and inspire and empower undergraduate students to grow into civic leaders.
The summit started with a panel discussion with Sen. Brown and a presentation from Print Syndicate’s Tanisha Robinson. The rest of the day was filled with interesting sessions featuring different community leaders, such as former Ohio Governor Bob Taft. Students also participated in an internship fair and breakout sessions focusing on food security, mental heath and human trafficking.
