State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) attended the 2013 Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education Recognition Dinner being held at the Renaissance Hotel in Cleveland.

More than 150 people from all around the country, and as far away as India and Australia, gathered together to honor Columbus resident, Dr. Cathy Ashmore, on her retirement as Executive Director of the Consortium for Entrepreneurship Education, and for her life of dedicated service to the cause of entrepreneurship education.

Representative Anielski presented a House commendation, which was joint sponsored by Representative Michael Stinziano (D-Columbus), to Dr. Ashmore.

“I am pleased to help honor Dr. Ashmore for her life of dedicated service,” Rep. Anielski said. “Her passion for education has motivated thousands of individuals to create their own employment opportunities.”

“It is an honor to recognize Dr. Ashmore for her remarkable career in education,” Rep. Stinziano said. “Her work in the field of youth entrepreneurship is impressive.”

Dr. Ashmore has been involved in entrepreneurship education in the United States and across the globe in developing programs that brought training to newly developing markets in Poland, Hungary, Romania, Russia, South Africa, and Kyrgyzstan. She helped to start entrepreneurship clubs in South Africa to empower youth who had virtually no job options to create their own opportunities.
