Clark Hill Associates Beth Stawasz, Ellen Hoeppner, and Peter Domas served on the host committee for The Henry Ford Young Professionals Kick-Off Meet and Greet on Dec. 18, which was attended by close to 100 young professionals. Attendees enjoyed a reception and introduction to the institution at the Michigan Café inside the Henry Ford Museum before heading outside to partake in the Holiday Nights festivities in Greenfield Village.
The Henry Ford’s Vice President of Institutional Advancement, Spence Medford, gave a brief presentation on the institution and the value it provides to the community, highlighting The Henry Ford’s mission of, “providing unique educational experiences based on authentic objects, stories, and lives from America’s traditions of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation.” Stawasz, who submitted the proposal for the group, provided an overview of what she and others on the host committee hope to accomplish in the future by working together to support The Henry Ford’s mission through fundraising and awareness. She pointed to The Henry Ford’s mission of ingenuity, resourcefulness and innovation as the answers to many of the problems presently facing our region, state and nation.
Stawasz has worked with Domas, Hoeppner and the Henry Ford since she first submitted her proposal to The Henry Ford for a young professionals committee last year. Now they will incorporate the ideas shared at the meet and greet and move toward forming an organization that will provide meaningful leadership and networking opportunities for young professionals. All while supporting “America’s Greatest History Attraction!”
