VOICEcorps reading service is pleased to announce that an interview with Jerrie Mock, the first woman to fly solo around the world, is now available. Mock, a Bexley, Ohio native, was a 38-year-old mother of three when she flew her single engine Cessna, “The Spirit of Columbus,” around the world in 1964. She was later heralded by then-U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson for the achievement.

VOICEcorps volunteer Steve Miller, of Worthington, interviewed Mock in early April. Now in her late 80s and living in Florida. The program originally aired on April 17, the 50th anniversary of her historic flight, coinciding with the unveiling of a statue of Mock at Port Columbus International Airport, where she had landed.

VOICEcorps celebrates its volunteers

VOICEcorps saluted its more than 200 volunteers Friday, April 11 in Grandview Heights. The annual occasion took place during National Volunteer Week.

Volunteers received service pins for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 35 years of continuous service to VOICEcorps and its listeners.

Thanking the volunteers for their commitment to bringing current news and vital information into the lives of so many, Nick Zerbi, VOICEcorps Board chair, said: “Without you, volunteers, VOICEcorps can’t run. This winter was a highlight of the dedication of our volunteers who know our listeners need us,” he said.

VOICEcorps volunteers come to the studios to read live, record programs and books. They also conduct interview programs, help with mailings and office work and assist at special fundraising events and the organization’s annual listener survey. The event was held at the Guild Athletic Club.

2014 Celebrity Read-In and Care-Athon
News

 

 

On Friday, March 7, more than 30 media professionals and community leaders gathered at VOICEcorps reading service studios to take part in the 2014 Celebrity Read-In Friday, March 7. The Read-In kicked off our annual Care-Athon on-air week of giving.

Among our guests was Columbus City Council member Priscilla Tyson.

“I think VOICEcorps plays a significant role in communicating with our residents. It’s important that all of our residents have access to information, such as the news of Columbus, the county, the state and the world. I think we have a responsibility to make sure people can get that information to enhance their quality of life,” Tyson said.

Several attendees used Social Media such as Twitter and Facebook to promote VOICEcorps before, during and after their visit.

To date, VOICEcorps has raised nearly $6,000 during the Care-Athon, with donations still coming in. And, it’s never too late to add to that effort by donating through our website, or sending your gift to VOICEcorps, 2955 West Broad St., Columbus, OH 43204.  Here’s a brief sampling of photos from the Celebrity Read-In…
