For Episode 18 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interviewing Johnna McEntee, the Executive Director of the Ohio Museums Association.

As indicated on their website, Founded in 1976 by members of the Ohio’s museum community, the Ohio Museums Association is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. OMA works with a variety of museums, museum professionals and providers of museum services to strengthen the state’s museum, foster excellence in the field and support the museum community.

Johnna has a great enthusiasm and dedication to serving the 1,200 sites in Ohio.  Here are some highlights from the show:

 

    • Johnna grew up in Kenton, Ohio, named after the famous frontiersman Simon Kenton.  A great biography on Simon Kenton is The Frontiersman by legendary author and Ohio native Allan Eckert
    • She credits her parents with instilling in her the following values:
      • being a lifelong learner
      • exploring your world around you
      • appreciate history and culture
      • faith and family
      • integrity, respect, hard work, and being dedicated to a cause
    • the value of her internship at the Ohio Historical Society, now known as Ohio History Connections.

      • The American Alliance of Museums is the national association for museums
      • the upcoming annual conference for the Ohio Museums Association in Cleveland, Ohio
      • Ohio has 10.4 museums per 100,000 residents, well above the national average
      • the economic impact of museum visits
      • how schools and museums partner to bring local history to the classroom
      • how someone can develop a new museum

      I really appreciated Johnna's commitment to serving our museum treasures in the great state of Ohio.

For Episode 17 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interview Don and Tracy Popp, a father-daughter combination who own and operate Don Popp Honey in Hamilton, Ohio.

Don began keeping bees in 1995 and the business has shown spectacular growth.  Last year, Don Popp honey produced 95,000 pounds of honey from 500 hives.  The product is known for its high quality and does not last long on the shelves in stores like Jungle Jim's and Krogers.

Here are some of the highlights from the show:

  • Learn about the importance of bees to mankind, and why there is cause for concern with the declining populations.
  • Varroa Mites...the deadly killers of honeybees
  • What the average homeowner can do to protect the bee population.
  • "If something eliminated bees from our planet, mankind would soon perish." -Albert Einstein
  • Open House event every August on the farm.
  • Why it is beneficial for his farm partners to keep hives on their property.
  • How they use the "honor system" to sell their product directly from their farm.
  • Beekeeping start ups
  • Don and Tracy's purpose of working to sustain the bee population for future generations.
