President Rod introduced Melissa Growden, Director of Career Services at Siena Heights University, instructed members who agreed to volunteer at the Art of Mingling presentation immediately following today’s regular meeting on their specific roles as students from Jackson College, SHU and Adrian College arrived. Some 60+ students were in attendance along with 10 club members.


And, what a great program it was. President Rod gave welcoming remarks along with Mayor Jim Berryman. Rotary members were asked to sit at individual tables and provide their expert advice to the students they sat with throughout the one hour and a half program. Melissa and two students, Danielle and Catherine, presented the information and mirrored some examples. Students were given a couple of written exercises and an opportunity to “mingle” while applying what they learned.


Yours Truly wrapped up the event by mentioning how important the information that was shared and that to be effective, they needed to practice and apply those valuable principles. This is the 3rd year our club has hosted this event. Thanks to all who volunteered!
