Risen Star to Rising Star-Women Making a Difference

Brigitta Hoeferle, 2009 Rising Star Award winner/owner of Montessori Kinder International School graciously handed over the honor of "Rising Star" to me, Jennifer Jack.

The Cleveland State Community College Small Business Development Center hosted a luncheon at the Museum Center at 5ive Points with wonderful speakers such as State Rep. Kevin Brooks; Brenda Sheehy, Small Business Development Center director; Carl Hite, CSCC president; and Cleveland Mayor Tom Rowland.

The Rising Star award is given annually by the Small Business Development Center to a business that best exemplifies not only business success, but an outstanding working relationship with the local SBDC and the use of the services it provides. In giving the award, the local SBDC is also recognizing the entrepreneurial spirit of the business owners and their contribution to the local business and economic environment.

What an honor to share this award with such a wonderful lady, and hope it will inspire others to dream big and help others!
