COLUMBUS—On Tuesday, Ohio Humanities honored State Senator Stephanie Kunze (R-Hilliard) with their inaugural Ohio Humanities hero award. 

Kunze was chosen for her leadership to promote humanities in Ohio specifically through the Women's Suffrage Centennial Commission, as well as efforts to secure pandemic relief funding for cultural institutions throughout the state.

"I am deeply honored to receive this award and I am thankful to the people in our communities and our state that foster beauty and connection through the humanities."
