Dear Student Life Team, Happy High Five Friday!  

I hope your summer is going well, so far. Scarlet and Great things are happening in Student Life, and it’s time again to High Five some of the people making the magic happen.  

High Five to Disability Services Lead Access Specialist Kelly Bonice, for being a double Buckeye Access All-Star. She was one of only eight faculty and staff on campus who were nominated in both the autumn and spring terms (by separate students) to be recognized for her work in promoting access for students with disabilities. In both cases, the students shared that Kelly had helped to increase their confidence as they experienced their disabilities while navigating Ohio State. 

And speaking of Disability Services, High Five to Access Specialist, Kayli Futty, for receiving an Ohio State Career Services Award for her work within the University Career Services Committee of career professionals on campus and their IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access) Team. She was also recognized for her part of the Program of the Year project on Disability Disclosure in collaboration with the Fisher College of Business. 

High Fives to Jennifer Chilman and Mollie Workman for being elected to continue as Executive Team Officers for University Career Services Committee (UCSC) for the 2021-2022 academic year. Jennifer will be Treasurer and Mollie will be Technology Team Lead.  

Rec Sports’ Nick Pangio gets a High Five for customer service. He’s been helping with membership and locker renewals, and made it go so smoothly for one patron that he told Nick, tongue in cheek, “Stop making it so easy!” 

High Fives to everyone who is taking some time to relax and refresh this summer. We all need it!
