Jerry Lucas led the Buckeyes to a 1960 national championship before heading to the NBA, and he was the speaker at this week’s Rotary Club reunion.

Lucas focused on his love of education and how he helps children find new ways to learn, giving them easy-to-remember sentences and pictures and connecting them to concepts that children learn at school.

“I created everything kids need to learn that is abstract and intangible, tangible – so it’s an image they can see and they can’t forget,” Lucas said. “If I say zebra or giraffe or elephant, you will see a picture in your mind, but the abstract and intangible things that are just ink on a page for kids, nothing comes to mind. gave an identity to everything they need to know. “

He also discussed the name, image and likeness rule that has just come into effect for Ohio varsity athletes.

“I think it’s great; these kids have an opportunity because their images are being used, and it’s great for them to make money from it,” Lucas said. “I hope that doesn’t turn into something that will cause a problem in the recruiting position, because in a school can say ‘you can come here, we can get you $ 5 million’ – I hope that doesn’t will not happen. “

Lucas partners with the Rotary Club for a raffle of signed photos of himself, Archie Griffin and Jack Nicklaus. All of these proceeds will be donated to the Lima Rotary Club and Lucas’s educational website. You can get tickets from any Rotary member in Lima.
