The kindergarten received a visit from the current Mrs. Ohio, Jeri Ward, during their lessons about the state. Jeri is an active volunteer, advocate, social worker, counselor, and autism specialist who lives right here in Dayton. She currently works for the state of Ohio in assisting families with reunification services to strengthen the families of Ohio, and ensure children’s safety.

Mrs. Ohio spoke to both kindergarten classes about how they can be an active members of their community and the types of volunteer activities she participates in. She even let everyone try on her crown. The students were able to ask her questions about what it takes to be Mrs. Ohio. She said it takes a lot of dedication, hard work and a love for your community and fellow human.

The students learned that you can achieve whatever it is you put your mind to if you have the courage to try and the determination to reach your goals.
