Here’s what 19th Class graduate Mark Shaffer had to say about his Alumni Advantage experience at Stark County day last month:
The Signature Program includes program days packed full of fun and highly informative material. The problem is, all topics are continually evolving and aren’t static. As an alumnus of the 19th Signature Class and current Leadership Stark County Board member, some time has passed and I wanted to refresh my experience and catch up on what’s new and evolving during Education Day. I enjoyed spending a day with the class and I certainly walked away feeling back up to speed. I’m looking forward to my next Program Day refresh.”
