Civic engagement with Cleveland is second nature to Sunny Nixon ’11. Growing up in Dover, Ohio, 90 minutes south of Cleveland, she first fell in love with the "The Forest City” when her dad brought her family to Cleveland to attend the annual convention for the Ohio Fire Chiefs’ Association. Nixon recalls being mesmerized by the impressive malls and lakefront that define Cleveland’s downtown.
Guest Speaker: Prof. Mark Sundahl
The hallmark of an exemplary leader is how that person values effecting positive change for others, not only for themselves. Great leaders make their mark by managing people and organizations with integrity, advocating for justice and speaking up against injustices. Those qualities, and many more of a great leader, are embodied in Equality Ohio Executive Director Alana Jochum ’10, recipient of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law’s first Leader on the Rise Award.
