State Senator John Eklund (R-Munson Township) today presented a resolution to the Cornerstone Christian High School boys basketball team for winning this year's division IV state championship.
"These men have proven that the path to achievement is not always a straight one," said Eklund. "This team has demonstrated their strength of heart and made the entire community very proud."
Silencing the nay-sayers with a 72-54 victory, the team clinched their first-ever state title in a match-up against Lincolnview.

"This program provides a unique opportunity for recent graduates to explore their interests in state government," said Eklund. “For many, the LSC Fellowship has led to successful careers in public policy, communications and public service."
"It is humbling to be chosen for an award such as this," said Eklund. "I believe in the kind of legislation that can bring hope, the kind that has the power to transform lives and the kind that makes the men, woman and children of Ohio feel secure and cared for."
"I look forward to working alongside my colleagues on this committee to ensure that each piece of legislation is thoroughly vetted and serves to improve the quality of life for all Ohioans," said Senator Eklund.
