The keynote speaker, Dr. Richard Adams, a graduate of The Ohio State University and former State Representative for Ohio, gave an enlightening presentation encouraging students to follow their dreams and suggested guidelines for consideration to achieve success in the future. He encouraged each student when preparing a homework assignment, working on a project or a job task to ask themselves the question, “Is that the best you can do?”

We thank Dwayne Thompson, Superintendent of Piqua City Schools, for allowing us to use the Piqua High School facility and Chamber Ambassadors, Matt Cox, Jeff Hemm, Jim McMaken and Randy Sever who assisted to help the evening run smoothly.
