Fran DeWine


As First Lady of Ohio, I am focused on helping children and families with programs that support early childhood literacy, promote child nutrition, and help maintain healthy families.

There is nothing more important than reading to our children. I read to all eight of mine and now read to my 24 grandkids. I am excited to promote the Governor’s Imagination Library, in partnership with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, to help put books into the hands of Ohio kids no matter where they live. 

I also love helping kids learn about preparing healthy and nutritious foods, while supporting local programs and organizations, like food banks, that do this important work. Cooking together is more than just making a meal – it’s a time to connect with each other, which brings us closer together.


First Lady Fran DeWine's projects intersect with her personal passions and help support children and families all over the State of Ohio.
