Congratulations to our 2019 Bright Star, Donna Winter from the Olmsted Community Center!

Donna's heavy involvement in our community & her willingness to lend a hand make her a highly valued member of our Chamber of Commerce!

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we say goodbye to Mr. Clint Williams, a man who dedicated his life to restoring and preserving the downtown area and creating a wonderful place for the community to enjoy. Without his vision, investment, eye for detail, and dedication to excellence the Grand Pacific Junction Historic Shopping District would not exist and Olmsted Falls would have a different look and feel than it does today.
Clint's commitment to the success of small business owners has always been unwavering. He founded Olmsted Heritage Days to bring the community together and increase awareness of his tenants at The Grand Pacific Junction.
We are grateful for his loyalty, contributions, and support of the Olmsted Chamber of Commerce and for the amazing historic gifts he left for all of us to enjoy for many years to come.
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to Clint’s family and close friends during this difficult time. He will be dearly missed by the entire community. ❤️

OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio -- A secondary education is all about educating students for their future. This includes life lessons in regard to money management and career decisions.
At Olmsted Falls High School, the state-required personal finance class involves numerous teachers with different backgrounds educating students on various related topics throughout the year.
"We want each student to look at their interests and how they're going to make money doing those interests," said digital marketing, marketing, internship and accounting teacher Liz Cleary. "We talk about college, trade schools, the military.
"We talk about jobs and income, budgets, emergency funds and saving for the future. We really cover the whole lifespan."
Over the years, Cleary has witnessed how the class has made an impact on students. Former pupils have credited the course for preparing them for paying taxes, while others wish they could retake the class for a refresher.
"We have the kids watch a documentary about some pitfalls of what happens to people when they get into financial problems and how it causes stress," Cleary said.
"So if they start now and have a foundation for when they become an adult with those challenges, they're kind of aware and have some tools to cope with those and get past those challenges. That's what we're hoping for," she said
