COSI hosted their fundraiser, Catalyst: A Celebration of Inspiration, on the evening of Wednesday, May 24. The event was hosted by 10TV’s own Angela An and featured the presentation of the John Glenn Inspiration Award to Jack Kessler, who single-handedly secured state action to rename Columbus’ airport to The John Glenn International Airport, worked to help create The John Glenn College of Public Affairs at The Ohio State University, and so much more. COSI’s President & CEO, Dr. Frederic Bertley, revealed a brand-new John Glenn-themed Learning Lunchbox science kit that will be distributed at no cost to under-resourced learners, and to conclude the evening, guests sampled delicious cuisine, enjoyed live jazz from The Bobby Floyd Trio, and explored a Lunar Rover replica from the Armstrong Museum for the night.
