On April 5, Drew Odum received the Ohio State Bar Foundation Community Service Award for Attorneys 40 and Under. Former Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA) president Robert Ware presented the award to Drew at the OSBA District 12 meeting.

Drew’s community service includes working one on one with students at the Cleveland Municipal School District’s Cleveland Early College (CEC) High School at John Hay Campus. A CEC advisory board member, Drew has volunteered as both a 3Rs teacher and a mock trial coach. He is a Louis Stokes Scholars Program mentor to minority college students interested in becoming attorneys, and he serves on the Cleveland High School for Digital Arts Advisory Board, the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network, and Cornell Club of Northeast Ohio. Drew is also an executive board member of the Center for Arts-Inspired Learning (formerly Young Audiences of Northeast Ohio).

A graduate of the Cleveland Municipal School District who, despite humble beginnings, went on to graduate from Cornell University, Drew taught fifth grade with Teach for America in Atlanta before attending Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and joining Tucker Ellis.
