for Norwood City Council at Large


Val Nice Orza was raised in Norwood and has always considered it home. When it came time to establish roots for her own family, Val, her husband Chris, and their two young children relocated in 2013, from New York City back home. 

Val is a graduate of St. Josephís College in Brooklyn. She holds a Bachelorís Degree in English. During her time in college, Val was awarded the Deanís List for academic excellence. She was a member of the Student Government Association. Also, she served as the President of the Music Association and had the honor of being the principle violinist of the St. Josephís College Orchestra.

In order to be the change she wants to see in the world, Val is very involved in the community. In 2015, Val ran a tight race for Norwood City Council Ward 4 representative. She spent three years as a substitute teacher in Norwood while obtaining her Ohio Teaching License and is now a fourth grade teacher at Immaculate Conception Academy in Norwood. Val is the newly elected PTA President at Norwood View where her children attend.  She is a member of several local groups including the Norwood Alumni Association and the Norwood Wellness Group. She is the founder and President of the Norwood Community Orchestra and enjoys playing the violin alongside her friends and neighbors. In the past, Val has served as Co-Chair on the Norwood Police Department Citizenís Advisory Council. At the state level, Val is a member of the Ohio PTA and Ohio Women in Government. Each of these roles show her ability to work as a leader on the behalf of others.

Val continues to see immense potential within the city of Norwood despite our major financial setbacks. A fiscally responsible Norwood is, again, at the forefront of Valís campaign.
