Favorite quote:

Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men, by rendering myself worthy of their esteem. How far I shall succeed in gratifying this ambition, is yet to be developed.”
Abraham Lincoln  

Favorite thing about Project GRAD Akron:

A little about Ben:

I was born in Columbus, OH and now live with my wife Laura in Cuyahoga Falls. I have a passion for education and its ability to improve lives and communities. I attended The Ohio State University and graduated with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and work today in the management of call centers. I love having the Metro Parks and the Cuyahoga Valley nearby and enjoy spending as much time as possible enjoying them.
