This week, OAPCS member school Columbus Collegiate Academy (CCA) celebrated the completion of its outdoor recreational facilities with an event at the school featuring CEO & Founder Andrew Boy and Keynote Speaker Archie Griffin. CCA received grant funds from The Columbus Foundation and The Columbus Youth Foundation to improve the playground.
At the Recreation Celebration this week, CEO and Founder Andrew Boy welcomed the guests and shared, “Today is a victory for our students and a celebration of using physical activity to positively impact the emotional and academic aspects of our community. Children now have a safe place to play and it is so uplifting to see this vision become a reality.”
Keynote Speaker Archie Griffin, President and CEO of The Ohio State University Alumni Association, discussed the importance of physical activity. “If I had not had a playground when I was a child, I would not have become the athlete I am today. Every child deserves this opportunity.”
