VIDEO FEATURE: $10,000 awarded to community non-profits as part of innovative English course

Ohio State Marion's Pay It Forward Celebration was held, Monday, May 1, 2017, 12 p.m. in Maynard Hall's Guthery Community Room. Students from Amy Tibbals' English 2367.01S class awarded $10,000 in grant funds to four Marion non-profits, including: Boys and Girls Club of Marion County, Marion Matters, Marion Goodwill, and Ohio Heartland Community Action Commission. The presentation served as the final piece of their semester-long grant process.

Pay It Foward is a partnership between The Ohio State University at Marion and The United Way of Marion County.

Students get an experience in this class. It isn' t just sitting down and writing papers and reading some books. It's something that they can take with them when they leave the classroom. They learn real skills, like their writing means something.
