A message from President McDavis regarding the passing of Senator Voinovich

The following message was sent by President Roderick J. McDavis to the Ohio University community on June 12, 2016. 

We are all deeply saddened by the news of Senator Voinovich’s passing. Senator Voinovich was a great American, dearly beloved alumnus of Ohio University, and a stalwart public servant and political leader. His passion for his community and state, his commitment and love for his family, and his unwavering support for educating the next generations of public servants serve as examples for why we revere him and feel blessed to have benefitted from his knowledge, wisdom, care, and compassion.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Janet and the Voinovich family as we mourn the loss of this great man whose legacy will touch many generations now and into the future.
