COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — John Pace has made it his focus to impact young lives. For years, the CEO of Classic for Columbus, along with members of his team, has been helping to send thousands of kids to college.
He plans to continue that work, but now with a bit of a shift in his mission. As Central Ohio communities confront deadly violence, he’s working to save lives.
“You have an opportunity no matter what your circumstances are today,” Pace said. “You can rise above those circumstances. Education is the key, and we’re going to make sure once you prepare yourself, the opportunities are there for you.”
