April Hometown Hero: Nick Hahn
Local12, Grainger, and PNC are proud to honor this month's Hometown Hero, Nick Hahn.
Mr. Hahn is the very essence of a Hometown Hero. He grew up on Cincinnati's west side, graduated from Elder High School and then Xavier University. Even today, Nick and his wife Barb reside in the small west side community of Bridgetown.
Nick has devoted much time and effort over the years to helping Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services (GCB). This local non-profit organization serves adults with severe mental illness in Hamilton County. Now retired from the Kroger Company where he served as Director of Corporate Brand Sales, Mr. Hahn worked tirelessly to "leverage the influence of his high-power career" for the benefit of GCB, stated Andrea Paul-Taylor in her nomination letter. Nick has served on the board of GCB since 2006 and will soon take over the role as Board Chair in July.
Quick to mention just a few of Mr. Hahn's kind works in her nomination, Andrea recalled Nick's donation of turkeys for GCB's annual Thanksgiving feast and his gifts of canned foods and dry goods that he will personally deliver to GCB and other area social service agencies. His "good nature and positive attitude are contagious," Andrea stated, while noting that he "regularly brings similarly motivated volunteers to work on behalf of GCB."
In addition to his work with GCB, Nick serves on the Board of Crayons to Computers, works with the Elder Alumni Association, served on the board of the Freestore Foodbank for 10 years and donated time to many other non-profit agencies around town.
With warm thanks, it is our privilege to introduce to you April's Hometown Hero, Nick Hahn. In appreciation of his efforts, Grainger has presented Nick with a commemorative plaque and PNC Bank will make a generous donation to GCB on Mr. Hahn's behalf.
