From the Superintendent
What I Think... by Ty Ankrom
What I Think... by Ty Ankrom

Jeffrey Robb believes that hands-on experiences build a foundation for one’s future.


To prepare for his future, the Logan Elm senior has dedicated numerous hours during his high school career to school leadership, athletics and volunteering. In the fall, that future will include attending Hiram College to study political science and public affairs.


And next week, Jeffrey will be named the 2018 Pickaway County recipient of the Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award, presented by each county Educational Service Center.


Named in honor of Walter, a former longtime state superintendent of public instruction, the award was established in 1989 by the Ohio Educational Service Center Association to promote and recognize outstanding student leaders for their academic achievement and service to their schools and communities.  

Eligible applicants must be a high school senior enrolled in a public school within an ESC’s service region. Recipients were required to demonstrate outstanding academic achievement as indicated by high school grades, test scores, school activities and awards.  


Jeffrey wants to continue his service-minded bend while in college, hoping to be active in many groups to understand how to help others, he wrote in the award application. He also would like to earn an internship at the state capitol to increase his education.


“Although college is a great place to begin your journey, I know that my mission stretches far beyond the confines of a college campus. Despite what my career ends up being, I want to ensure the success of the American people,” he wrote. 


“Every person is unique and intricate, and I want to make sure that all people have equal opportunities and chances to live their best life. I firmly believe that one way to do that is to elect the best public servants possible.


“Therefore, I plan to start a nonprofit that teaches the importance of voting and staying politically informed to teenagers and young adults in a bipartisan way.


“Whatever I do, I hope that I never lose sight of the importance of giving back and making the world a better place.”
