50 ideas to move the region forward. Here's who else is in the Future 50 Class of 2020.

What does Columbus need to thrive? “We may be the Future 50, but along with new residents will come new children, the real future. As a new mom and a daughter of educators, education and opportunity for young children in the community is at the core of the work I do every day. A leader’s key responsibility is always to create more leaders. I think it is our responsibility to support the kids and create new leaders.”

Epp’s idea: “Columbus has so many existing events and organizations available already. Because of the saturation, the awareness and the visibility often are not there and they aren’t reaching the right people or as many people as they could. Tapping into the existing events, talent and organizations and using the Future 50’s connections, I think we could empower the current infrastructure to really expand their reach.”
