Governor's Courage Awards honors three Ohioans

WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Gov. John Kasich has given this year's Governor's Courage Awards to three Ohioans who made personal sacrifices to help others.

The governor delivered the awards during his final State of the State address on Tuesday in his hometown of Westerville.

Recipient Mikah Frye, a 10-year-old from Ashland County, passed up an Xbox for Christmas and used the money to buy blankets for a homeless shelter.

Chris Hole, a nurse from Miamisburg, won the award for her work helping to save lives after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history in Las Vegas in October.

Nina Schubert, a 19-year-old student at Kent State University, was the third winner. Schubert created the Nightingale Project, an on-campus student group with the goal of ending stigmas around mental illness.
