Paying it Forward      

Spotlight on BD&E.           

We are thrilled to announce that our President and CEO, Jeff Flick, was named Alumnus of the Year by Bethany College! Jeff graduated cum laude from Bethany in 1982 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications and a concentration in graphic design. Jeff was also a varsity soccer player for the nationally ranked NCAA Division III Bison. The Alumnus of the Year Award is given to notable Bethany alumni who demonstrate loyalty to the college and exceptional achievement. He was honored at the Alumni Weekend Awards Reception on May 4th.

BD&E has worked with Bethany College on various marketing communications and branding efforts for nearly 10 years. Jeff loves being able to work directly with his alma mater, stating, "Having Bethany as a client gives me the opportunity to pay back, and try to pay it forward."

Work Hard. Play Hard.          



On May 4th, Corey Martinez crossed the Tiffin University stage, received his B.A. in Business Administration, kissed his mother (Kris Martinez, Executive Vice President/Creative Director) and left town! ... with his teammates to compete in the NCAA DII Golf Regional playoffs. In August, Corey will compete in Scotland as a member of the USA DII Golf team ----  on the links at St. Andrews, the home of golf. By fall he will return to TU to begin work on his master's degree. 

 Catching up with Bella
Swim, Bella. Swim.

Bella has made her triumphant return to Lake Elizabeth while regaining the title of Mayor on Foursquare. To some, it may seem as if it is a cement pond or a simple water feature located in West Park. To Bella, it is her favorite place to catch a brief swim, hang out with Kayak Pittsburgh and chase the ducks! Thanks to our Neighbors on the Northside for making it happen every year!

Thanks for your time. We will catch up again next month. Spring is in full bloom; remember, it is nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!" Go Pens!
