Mr. Myron (Mike) Ullman, Executive Chairman of J.C. Penney will answer questions from a panel of community leaders discussing education and our local economy. Over 500 business leaders and educators will join the Economics Center in recognizing community leaders for accomplishments throughout the year, specifically highlighting successes in economic and financial education. 

Each year, at the Awards Luncheon the Economics Center acknowledges educators that have excelled in both economics and financial education. Teachers are recognized for their outstanding commitment to their students. These districts and their teachers have embraced our mission and are considered the best and brightest in the community. The Valentine Leadership Award is presented to a elementary principal who has demonstrated leadership, excellent program implementation, creativity and advocacy for the Center’s elementary initiative. A long time supporter of this program, Ms. Margaret Valentine, Vice President of Valentine Research, has generously supported the Student Enterprise Program (StEP) and she will present this award. Ohio National Financial Services, a contributor to the Ohio Stock Market Game, which the Center coordinates statewide, awards the winning student team. This game teaches important 21st Century skills, such as critical-thinking, decision-making and research, in addition to the basics of saving and investing. 

The Community Service award recognizes an organization that has important local and economic impact and is an organization that has a deep commitment to incorporating economic research into its business practices.

The Center broadens teachers’ knowledge about economics and finance through professional development seminars and empowers these teachers to introduce these concepts to students in the K-12 classroom.
