United Way of Central Ohio hosted the Community Impact Center (CIC) Celebration where all CIC tenant partners came together for refreshments, camaraderie and networking. Dr. Lisa Courtice, President and CEO of United Way of Central Ohio, and Melanie Gresson, Vice President of Information Technology and the CIC, welcomed everyone with an opening speech detailing the unique trajectory by which the building, its tenants, and even the adjoining parking garage came together as one entity. Indeed, 215 North Front Street is now a shining beacon in downtown Columbus, solely filled with non-profit organizations that carry out life-changing missions every single day. 

After enjoying a wide range of beverages and snacks, the attendees were instructed to partake in the evening’s core activity - a passport-style tour of the building. Tenants were to take some time to explore the other offices to learn who their neighbors are and see how they might collaborate and complement each other. As non-profit organizations who serve diverse populations and age groups, it was an invaluable opportunity to bring great minds together and to establish new connections for future endeavors. 

LTWLA’s Executive Director, Anthony Murphy, and Narahari Luke, the Director of Operations, made their way around the building and were proud to represent Lead The Way Learning Academy. They interacted and connected with countless new colleagues from Future Ready Five, Per Scholas, I Know I Can, and Deaf Services Center, just to name a few. 

LTWLA certainly enjoyed meeting its fellow building mates, and their “passport visit” was set up as an interactive game which allowed the player to see what it is like to be an A.M.P. Career Coach. There were even prizes for participation!

Brea Porter, the Director of Business Operations, and Christian Owens, the Director of K-8, made sure that the visitors walked away not only with some LTW swag, but also with a solid sense of LTWLA’s mission and daily impact. It is clear that the CIC Celebration was a rousing success.
