March 3, 2010: The Columbus Council on World Affairs IAC


Tuesday, March 9, 2010

The Columbus Council on World Affairs International Awards Ceremony (Tuesday, March 9) will honor
AEP and educator Tricia Fellinger-Reyes of Upper Arlington High School. Keynote from Michael Morris,
AEP Chairman, President, & CEO. Content of ceremony will address global energy and climate change,
world language education, and the role of Ohio businesses and workers in the world marketplace.

ABOUT THE HONOREES

American Electric Power – By investing in energy research and environmental education locally, this
utility provider has established itself as a leader in addressing global climate change.

Michael G. Morris, Chairman, President, and CEO of AEP, says the company’s role in addressing global
warming is embodied by its voluntary efforts to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, including investing
in carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, but also in its support of the American Clean Energy and
Security Act of 2009. He says a comprehensive legislative approach, if it passes the Senate, will help
guarantee that “steps are taken to preserve jobs for American workers by ensuring that international
trade counterparties are taking comparable actions to address this global issue.”

While public debate continues over specific legislative approaches, or the role of technologies like CCS,
Patrick Terrien of the Columbus Council on World Affairs says “We honor AEP because they are
fundamentally involved in these global discussions, working to reconcile the needs of various parties.
Energy security and all of the related concerns – like the connection between energy and water or
international conflict over oil – are at stake.”

Patricia “Tricia” Fellinger-Reyes – She views language learning as a gateway to the development of
students’ “world citizen” identities. This outstanding educator doesn’t just teach her pupils the words
with which to communicate correct German phrasing, but fosters their desire to talk ABOUT something
with peers worldwide.

Fellinger-Reyes says she works to “give students access to the tools with which they can develop their
language proficiency so that they will be able to think, analyze, and defend their opinions on important
global issues in German.” This includes regular correspondence with peers in Deutschland. A recurrent
topic that has emerged regularly in online discussions between the two groups is the respective countries’
approaches to dealing with environmental concerns at the international, national, and household levels.
