State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently met with students from the Columbus Intermediate School.   She spoke to a group of fifth and sixth grade students from the school.

Representative Anielski explained the many roles of a state representative to the students and how positive interactions with people are crucial for being an effective leader.  In collaboration with Columbus Intermediate School and Councilman Chris Callender, Ward 1 of Oakwood Village, a student group called “Committed to Excellence” has been created to provide positive influences and motivation to the students at a young age. 

“Interacting directly with bright young students, like the fifth and sixth graders at Columbus, was enlightening,” said Rep. Anielski.  “The limitless energy was portrayed in verbalizing their future aspirations.  It is vital that we instill the importance of voting, government, and education at a young age to keep our children engaged.”

Oakwood Village Councilmen Chris Callender said, "Committed to Excellence provides an opportunity for young men to establish goals for their own future.  Committed to Excellence’s mission is to provide an outlet for students to handle difficult situations in the correct manner without losing sight of their future goals.   We will further discuss how to handle issues and problems that occur during this age group.  Our focus will be on making the right decisions, doing the right thing and building character.”
