COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Nine Ohioans will be inducted into the Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Columbus.

The ceremony will be held at the Ohio Statehouse on Thursday. This year’s honorees will join more than 400 individuals inducted since 1978.

Officials with the Ohio Department of Aging say the 2015 honorees include 87-year-old John Hughes, of Springdale. He has logged 38,000 miles as a cyclist promoting health and fitness and raising funds for various causes.

The hall honors individuals age 60 and older who are native-born Ohioans or who have been Ohio residents for at least 10 years.

Nominations are evaluated on the impact of current contributions or a continuation of work and accomplishments begun before age 60.

This year’s nominees range in age from 67 to 92.
