A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT….
With a new school year underway, the Chamber of Commerce is fortunate to have Michael Sheppard, Superintendent of the Berea City School District speak at our upcoming Chamber meeting. Mr. Sheppard’s annual “State of the Berea City Schools” presentation will be held on September 8th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Engle Road in Middleburg Heights. This usually widely attended meeting with be held in conjunction with other local Chamber’s and will provide valuable insight as to the where the school district is heading in the future.
Staying with the theme of a new school year, the Chamber is interested in hosting another Scholarship Fundraiser as we have each year in the past. The Chamber’s Scholarship fund allows our organization to recognize two Middleburg Heights residents which are current high school seniors with $1,000 scholarships to help defray some of their upcoming college expenses. Please stay tuned to future newsletters as to the details on the next Scholarship Fundraiser. If you or your business are interested in hosting an event to help donate proceeds to the Scholarship fund, please contact the Chamber office to help organize an event.
Throughout the past few months, the Chamber has continued to grow our membership. Please join me in welcoming the new members that have recently become Chamber members:
Berea Printing Company, Stangaurd Security, CorVel Ohio MCO, Sears Automotive, Motel 6, Reliable Solutions, Thom Sivo Photography, T-Mobile, VFW Post 3345
Thank you to all of our new members as well as our current members who continue to get the word out about the value of joining the Chamber.
I look forward to seeing you at the State of the Berea Schools meeting on September 8th.
John Grech, President
