A Very Special Person

One of the special treats of my position is stepping in for a moment in an institution’s history and engage with board members and supporters for which COSI has been a life’s work and passion. We just celebrated one of those individuals today as board member Fred Pfening, Jr. stepped down after 27 years of direct board service to COSI.

Fred has been involved in the hiring of three of the four Presidents that we have had in our 44 year history. He’s been one of the key voices at the board table reflecting the historic strengths and memory of COSI and keeps us anchored on those when we need it. We’re going to miss that. Fred is just a special person and I’ll let the video of our little board ceremony honoring Fred tell the rest of the story.



  1. Fred is an excellent chap. And no one knows the circus business better than Fred. (Really!)

    Thank you, Fred, for your wonderful service to Columbus, to COSI, and to your common citizen.
