Guy Worley, who has helped direct numerous civic projects Downtown, is being recognized by the John Glenn School of Public Affairs at Ohio State University as its outstanding alumnus of the year.

Worley, who since 2007 has served as president and chief executive officer of the Columbus Downtown Development Corp. and Capitol South Community Urban Redevelopment Corp., earned an undergraduate degree in economics and a master’s degree in public administration from Ohio State.

He played a key role in projects such as the Scioto Mile along the riverfront and Columbus Commons, which replaced City Center.

Before joining the development corporation, Worley was county administrator for the Franklin County Board of Commissioners, serving as its chief executive officer.

He will be honored at a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday in Page Hall.
