COLUMBUS - Tyler Butler recently was selected to be a founding member of The Ohio State University's I BEAM Society.
The I BEAM Society is an 88 member student organization whose purpose is to represent the impact each county in Ohio has on The Ohio State University. One student from each county was chosen through a selective application process in order to find students who truly embody the spirit of their home county. Butler was chosen and will serve as the student representative from Huron County.
Members of the I BEAM Society will show their county pride by serving as a representative at different Ohio State events. Recently, members of the I BEAM Society signed the final beam that was placed on the new Ohio Union on May 9, 2008, securing their place in history.
The Ohio Union, the student Union on Ohio State's campus, currently is being reconstructed and will be completed in 2010. Members of the I BEAM society will continue to play a role in the development of the Ohio Union.
Butler is from Wakeman and graduated from Western Reserve High School. He is a student at Ohio State majoring in Political Science, where he is also a member of Alpha Tau Zeta fraternity, Stradley Hall Council, and Russian Club.
