Cincinnati State Cheer Zone for Girls on the Run

Who loves Surge? Over 1100 local girls aged 8 to 13 were part of November 21st’s “Girls on the Run” 5K walk/run on Cincinnati’s Riverfront. There to applaud and motivate them on a chilly morning were Cincinnati State family and friends in the college’s first “cheer zone”. While other area colleges are represented by sorority sisters, Cincinnati State faculty supported runners with a whole lot of cheers, several hundred high fives, and even a few Surge hugs. Giving hugs and high fives despite the cold were Johnna Bradley, Jayne Dressing, Meredith Effler, Jason Ellis (and family), Julee Johns, Stani Kantcheva, Julie Klensch, Kathleen Pickens, Mark Tiemeier, and Abbey Yee.  Click thru to view the photo gallery.

 “Girls on the Run” is an international program that does more than get girls running—it aims to build character, self-confidence, and empower young women to fulfill their potential. Quite simply, it inspires girls to “Be Great”.


Happy #GivingTuesday!

Today is a global day of giving that kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

For the Cincinnati State Community, #GivingTuesday is another opportunity to make your contribution to the Giving Challenge.

If you have not yet participated in the Giving Challenge, please consider making a gift to Cincinnati State. 

You can designate your contribution in a way that is meaningful to you. 


 For inspiration, watch this video of President's Impact Scholarship recipient Davon Bennett, which was filmed at the scholarship luncheon. Just click on the image.

As a reminder, the Giving Challenge has been extended to run until noon on December 18th
