Terri was a 1980 graduate of The Ohio State University and was a 30-year resident of Delaware County. As an entrepreneur, she started and grew a successful accounting firm from her home and later opened offices in Delaware County: The TLC Group.
Terri lived her life to the fullest (FUN was serious!) while being highly committed to her family, friends, church and business. She was deeply devoted to a personal level of service to her clients and made a lasting impact on everyone she met through her fun-loving outlook on life. Terri loved spending time with her many friends, family, never missed a Buckeye tailgate or the opportunity to return a hearty “I-O” to an “O-H.”
Terri’s family is honored to be able to continue her legacy by awarding this scholarship to a student from Delaware County annually.
