    David Kilroy [Local Legends Podcast] #26

    David Kilroy is the Program Director at the Kricker Innovation Hub.

    About a decade ago, The State of Ohio designated Shawnee State University as the center of excellence in Digital Immersive Technology.

    Since then David has become a key part of executing that vision, which has become the The Kricker Innovation Hub, a flagship space in the community for start-ups, tech education, and symbol for the New Portsmouth.

    We dive deeper into the resources available here in Portsmouth for entrepreneurs with the hunger to thrive in the river city, discuss what the space has yielded so far, as well as what's to come.

    Matt Knore [Local Legends Podcast] #24

    Matt Knore is the Fixed Ops Director at Glockner Chevrolet Service Center.

    Matt and I have been talking a lot recently off the mic, and here we share some of the practical steps that we’re taking to uphold the Glockner vision statement, that being:

    “Without excuse or apology, we will strive to be the benchmark that others aspire to match.”

    Lets be very clear, being a “local” business is not a limitation. 

    We’re striving to be the best at what we do and want to openly invite the other small town entrepreneurs listening to join us.

    Jacob Tolliver [Local Legends Podcast] #23

    Jacob Tolliver [Local Legends Podcast] #23

    Jacob Tolliver is a local piano playing prodigy from West Portsmouth, Ohio.

    Right out of high school, after a video he uploaded on youtube caught the attention of the right person, Jacob ended moving to Las Vegas to perform in the Million Dollar Quartet.

    A far cry from Jacob’s original plan to attend The Ohio State University, he’s another perfect example of how far anyone in a small town can really go, if only we don’t downplay what we can accomplish because of where we’re from.

    From Portsmouth, Ohio being the poster child of the opioid epidemic in 2015, to becoming the National Civic League's 2020 All-America City, I can’t help but feel our small town is brimming with exceptional small town people.
