The 22nd Class of the Child & Family Leadership Exchange (CFLE) has been named, with 29 participants from 20 different area organizations taking part in a year-long series of activities designed to promote excellence in leadership among Summit County professionals who serve children and families.

Through this program, participants gain an in-depth understanding of the county's child and family services systems, expand their network of service delivery partners, and develop their leadership skills. The program's hands-on approach to learning encourages communication among service providers and enhances the effectiveness of those leaders committed to strengthening family life in the community.

Included in the class are:

Beth McMinn Sullivan, LSW (Munroe Falls), Evaluator for the Summit County Domestic Relations Court.

Lucky Tisch (Munroe Falls), Communications and Community Outreach Coordinator for the County of Summit ADM Board.

Katie Tomko, JD (Stow), assistant prosecutor with the Summit County Prosecutor's Office.

The Child & Family Leadership Exchange program is administered by Summit County Children Services and oversight is provided by an advisory board.
