Excellence is embodied in this year's recipient of The Ohio Society Gold Medal for Meritorious Service to the Accounting Profession--Press C. Southworth III, CPA.
Southworth, a retired partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers, stepped out of retirement to salvage the near defunct Opera Columbus by assuming the role of executive director. After only 16 months, the organization has gone from the verge of closing its doors to paying off its debt.
In an emotional close to his remarks, Southworth acknowledged his ten-year-old grandson as his personal hero. "He was born with a handicap, but he has never let that slow him down. He is the best pitcher on his baseball team and fastest player on his soccer team. That is an example of what determination can do," Southworth said.
