MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Safety Council will hold the annual awards breakfast meeting Wednesday, April 18, at the Glenn A. Gallagher Centre. Doors open at 7:20 a.m. Special guest speaker Craig Krenzel, will present “Passion: The Number One Ingredient to Success.”

Craig’s leadership helped guide Ohio State to their first National Championship in 32 years leading the Buckeyes to a perfect 14-0 season including a victory over top-ranked and defending national champion Miami in the 2003 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, of which he was named Offensive MVP. Krenzel compiled 2,478 yards of total offense in 2002, fifth all-time at OSU and was named the Archie Griffin Offensive Player of the Year and voted OSU’s Co-MVP for the 2002 season. He currently ranks ninth all-time with over 4,300 career passing yards. After being voted All-Big Ten as a junior, Craig was named 2003 Team Captain by his teammates. He finished his career with a victory in the 2004 Fiesta Bowl where he was named MVP for the second year in a row. As a starting quarterback, Craig finished his career with a 24-3 record and was drafted in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. He started five games in the Windy City before spending one year with the Cincinnati Bengals.

•The 100 percent Award, presented to each company that has zero injuries or illnesses resulting in a day or more away from work in the previous calendar year.
