Ada has lots to offer for a small town - just ask Becky Neville

Ada has lots to offer for a small town.

Just ask Becky Neville, broker for Century 21 Beacon Realty, 208 N. Main St., Ada. She’s been telling about all the good things that the community offers since she purchased a realty office in Ada in 2001.

“Ada offers all kinds of cultural and educational-related opportunities with Ohio Northern University,” she said. “And, there are lots of very nice people who live here. We have a great school and the community is involved in the village activities.”

“I love being on Main Street…love saying hello to my neighbors, and doing business locally,” she adds.

Pharmacy student receives Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Award

Ohio Northern University student Katie Westgerdes, a fifth-year pharmacy major from Coldwater, Ohio, is ONU’s inaugural recipient of the Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Award. The Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy was one of 13 pharmacy schools from across the nation selected in 2011 to receive funding from the $1.1 million Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Program.

This scholarship will help defer the costs of Westgerdes’ tuition at Ohio Northern. In addition, Westgerdes has been invited by Cardinal Health to attend and be honored at its annual Retail Business Conference in Orlando, Fla., in July.
