Last week, Ohio Christian University’s Atlanta site in Georgia was awarded Member of the Week by the Clayton County Chamber of Commerce for outstanding commitment and service to the community. President of the Chamber Monica Colbert presented the award with two other members of the chamber to the campus. The Atlanta site has been a member of the Chamber for four years and has worked hard to impact the surrounding community, which boast over 6000 businesses.
In an effort serve their community, the Atlanta site has opened up their chapel for community events, including several job fairs. In the past six months, the site has hosted eight community events, including the “I Am Teen & Young Adult Job Fair,” which was seen as very successful in preparing young adults for the workforce. The event offered assistance in resumé writing, internships, and job opportunities.
It was for efforts like these that the Atlanta site was recognized for their service in the community. Through service and community engagement, Ohio Christian’s Atlanta site is shining as a powerful light for Christ in the greater Atlanta area.
