Ohio officials have honored 12 people with inductions into the state Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.
The hall recognizes the impact of the contributions of leaders in their fields, community activists and others who have benefited the state. This year's nominees range in age from 72 to 95 and include Dublin Doctor Jeri Milstead - an internationally known expert in nursing education and public policy, Worthington's Chuck White - the state's first black TV broadcaster and Jim Lorimer, who helped start the Arnold Sports Festival to Columbus. The Ohio Department of Aging says the Hall of Fame highlights the important roles of older Ohioans as they continue to contribute later in life. Since 1977, more than 400 individuals have been inducted into the hall.
