The Ohio State University senior and Dublin native Daniel Lesman has been named a 2021 Rhodes Scholar.
Lesman is Ohio State’s ninth Rhodes Scholar, and the third Buckeye to be honored in three years — an unprecedented feat in university history. Ohio State’s previous recipients were Henry Wu (2020) and Laila Ujayli (2019).
A snapshot of where Star House is mentioned:
During Lesman’s freshman year at Ohio State, he volunteered at Star House, a center for youth experiencing homelessness. Lesman realized that there was an unmet need for academic tutoring among Star House residents, and he eventually founded Pass the Class, a nonprofit organization that has served over 100 homeless and at-risk youth. The organization is currently expanding to other universities across the country.
“As our students go on to attend institutions of higher education and achieve other important milestones, the value of education has never been more apparent to me,” he said.
