Ohio’s treasurer on Monday recognized an area manufacturing employee for his work.
Treasurer Josh Mandel praised Scott Wasserman for his contributions to Findlay Machine and Tool.
Mandel said the “Ohio Strong” award aims to honor such employees and inspire young people to enter the field.
“You have a whole generation of young people with a lot of college debt,” Mandel said. “Many of them have four-year liberal arts degrees, but they’re working at Starbucks or retail at the mall.”
Future nominations for the award can be made through ohiotreasurer.gov.
