Senator Hottinger is presented the PCSAO Gayle Channing Tenenbaum Legislator of the Year Award, presented by Mary Wachtel, legislative director for PCSAO.

COLUMBUS—State Senator Jay Hottinger (R-Newark) was named Legislator of the Year today in recognition of his continued support for the children served by Ohio's children services agencies during a special presentation at the Public Children Services Association of Ohio's annual conference.

"I'm truly humbled to receive an award named in honor of Gayle Channing Tenenbaum—a nationally recognized advocate for children’s issues and especially her leadership in Ohio as a voice for abused and neglected children," said Hottinger. "The agencies and the children that this organization serves are facing unprecedented challenges. These issues should be a top priority for all of us.”

Hottinger was honored for his work successfully championing a $15 million investment to address the growing pressure put on agencies to support children affected by the drug crisis. The budget also invests in recovery centers and child protective services, thanks to efforts led by Senator Hottinger, to assist in caring for children who have been abandoned by drug-addicted parents.

Public Children Services Association of Ohio is a membership-driven association of Ohio’s county Public Children Services Agencies that advocates for and promotes child protection program excellence and sound public policy for safe children, stable families, and supportive communities.

Education Begins In The Home

 

Each new school year brings fresh challenges and responsibilities not only for students, but also for us as parents. Students whose parents take an active role in supporting their education perform better in class, stay more engaged and are more likely to stay in school than those students whose parents are not involved. Children whose parents consistently spend time with them have a higher self-esteem and stronger motivation to succeed in the classroom.
