LIMA, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich has presented his annual Governor's Courage Award to the sons of late astronaut Neil Armstrong, community members in Chardon, site of a school shooting a year ago, and a woman who has worked to break stereotypes about autism.
Kasich says the awards were created to highlight the extraordinary work of fellow Ohioans, work that deserves recognition but that can also serve as an inspiration for all.
Kasich says Neil Armstrong was a great man who was also one of the most humble persons you could meet.
He presented Armstrong's awards to the astronaut's sons Rick and Mark.
Kasich also honored Sondra Williams, director of the Autism Research Institute's Youth Division and teachers, students and residents in Chardon, where three students were killed last February.
