Exceeding Expectations, the digital narrative project of the Columbia Aging Center, was recognized by the New York Press Association with its annual award for best news of feature story.

Conceived by Ruth Finkelstein and directed, created, and edited by Dorian Block, the series was recognized in April 2016 by the New York Press Association for the narrative featuring Hank Blum written by Heather Clayton Colangelo. Hank Blum, an 85-year-old retiree who can’t stay retired, is an example of someone who benefits from the workplace and the engagement that work provides.

Despite several attempts to retire, Dr. Blum currently works at Metro Optics, a small business that received the 2015 Age Smart Employer Award, an initiative of the Columbia Aging Center to recognize businesses with hiring practices that favor a workforce of all ages.
