From The Lantern:
An Ohio State initiative serving at-risk youth since 2006 was nominated for and received a regional scholarship award over all other outreach and engagement programs on campus.
Nominated by the university president’s office, Ohio State’s Learning in Fitness and Education through Sports initiative was granted the 2020 W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Engagement Scholarship Award Oct. 6. The scholarship award is $5,000, and Rebecca Wade-Mdivanian, director of operations for the LiFEsports initiative, said the money will be used for the initiative’s next summer camp.
The initiative paired with the Lindy Infante Foundation, Columbus Recreation and Parks and Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority to give out equipment in five different Columbus neighborhoods, which the kids would use during online sports lessons, Wade-Mdivanian said.
