COLUMBUS - Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof
(R-Medina) today reappointed State Senator Peggy Lehner

The Senate Education Committee is charged with overseeing Ohio’s primary education system including standards and regulations managed by the Ohio Department of Education. The committee also makes recommendations to the full senate on the advice and consent of certain governor’s appointments.
“I am honored to be reappointed as Senate Education Chair,” said Lehner. “I look forward to continuing to work with Ohio’s many fine teachers and education leaders across the state, along with my colleagues in the Senate, to ensure all students—from preschool to college graduates—have access to the highest quality school system in the nation.”
A leader at the forefront of efforts to align K-12 education with college and career readiness, Senator Lehner works with stakeholders from across the country to find innovative solutions to Ohio’s challenges and opportunities.
As a result, she is the recipient of various awards for her leadership on education issues including Legislator of the Year by the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools and the President's Award from the Buckeye Association of School Administrators.
