WILMINGTON — Raising awareness and $73,000 along the way requires all kinds of support. Many people are out front and very visible in the effort while others work quietly behind the scenes.

Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives and Clinton County native Cliff Rosenberger was one of the latter when it came to the two Clinton County Honor Flights.

Rosenberger’s support did not go without notice by members of the Honor Flight Committee who felt the Speaker’s unadvertised efforts were critical to the eventual success of the project.

Shining the light on his contributions came at the Clinton County Corn Festival when members of the committee surprised the Speaker with a special recognition.
