"Columbus Mayoral Race"
Zach Scott, Franklin County Sheriff 
Sheriff Zach Scott was raised in Franklin County. After graduating from Hamilton Township High School, he continued his studies at Franklin University where he earned his degree in Organizational Leadership and Business Administration. In 2014, Sheriff Scott completed the Senior Executives in State & Local Government Program at Harvard University’s John Kennedy School.
Sheriff Scott was appointed as Sheriff in July 2011 and elected in 2012. During his tenure with the Sheriff's Office, Sheriff Scott worked in the Franklin County Correctional Facility, Narcotics and Vice Unit, SWAT Team, Detective Bureau, and Community Relations Unit. Sheriff Scott was the lead detective on the Sheriff's Office's largest international, non-task force, drug seizure as well as other investigations. The investigations include, but are not limited to, the following: the I-270 Serial Shooter, the Caulley murders, and the Conway gang murders.  Several of Sheriff Scott's homicide investigations have been featured on Court T.V., A&E, and the Discovery Channel. In 2014, Sheriff Scott was designated a Certified Homeland Protection Professional (CHPP) by the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition. Those who hold the CHPP designation are prepared to help their organizations prevent, protect against, prepare for, respond to, mitigate and recover from all hazards.

The much awaited and anticipated 2015 Dictionary Project is upon us. I am sure everyone is tingling with excitement, as always.

We need a few more sets of hands for the sorting of Dictionaries tomorrow - Thursday, October 1
st @ 2:00 PM. We will do this at Buckeye Boxes, 601 N. Hague Avenue, Columbus 43204. We will be in the south building.
Some of you signed up at Rotary last week to deliver dictionaries to schools, but we still need your help to visit every elementary school in the City School District.  
This year we are trying to get ALL schools delivered between October 5th and 16th. A two week window is an effort to not miss any students that switch schools.
Please let Tim Maghie know if you are able to help again this year, your efforts are much appreciated.
Looking forward to another successful year.

The Rotary Clubs of Whitehall-Bexley, Circleville, Zanesville, Marietta, Columbus, Dublin AM, and Dublin-Worthington are reviving the Group Study Exchange Program. We will send a GSE Team to Sorocaba, Brazil May 3-25, 2016, and a return team will visit from District 4620, tentatively in late May through mid-June 2016. District 4620 is located in the area surrounding and including São Paulo. 

The District 6690 GSE Committee is now seeking applications for Team Leader to visit Brazil. We need your help to identify candiates for this position.

The GSE Team Leader must be a Rotarian from District 6690. Rotarians with proven leadership ability and international travel experience are encouraged to apply.  Having the ability to speak Portuguese is a plus. The District Governor, her spouse, the Immediate Past District Governor and his spouse are not eligible to serve as Team Leader.  Otherwise, all Rotarians from District 6690 are eligible. 

The deadline to submit the application (attached) for Team Leader is Friday, October 30, 2015.  Completed applications are to be sent to District 6690 GSE Chair Jan Zupnick at 77 South Cassady Avenue, Bexley, OH 43209 or email 

Later this fall, information will be sent about applying for the remaining four non-Rotarian GSE Team positions. If you’ve already received this information, please pass the application to a likely candidate.
