Curtis Jewell, founder and CEO of EXCEL Management Systems, was honored this year at City Year Columbus’ annual Red Jacket Ball for his long-standing support of the organization. EXCEL is a 25-year old IT services company with customers in federal, state, commercial, and non-profit sectors. EXCEL is committed to supporting organizations such as City Year that do important work in the community day in and day out.
City Year Columbus is led by a group of dedicated and inspiring professionals who are committed to ensuring that City Year makes significant impact in helping students who are at risk stay on track to graduate on time. Its leadership is comprised of business professionals, community leaders, and devoted alumni.
The Red Jacket Ball unites business and community leaders, citizen supporters, and service champions to raise funds to support and honor the work of corps members who are making a difference in their communities through a year of full-time service. Through this event and others, City Year was able to raise almost a quarter of a million dollars (and counting) to continue its work in Columbus City Schools, keeping students in school and on track to graduate.
