  • Michelle Park, a 2013 Strictly Financials fellow  and finance reporter at Crain’s Cleveland Business, said, “I gained a re-energized belief in what I do and what my job can do for my community, if only I’ll look and dig where others might not. I left Strictly Financials inspired by my ability to dig more intelligently into numbers that matter.”
  • Tom Herman, a 2011 Business Journalism Professors fellow and adjunct instructor at Columbia Journalism School, said,“Your seminar was absolutely superb. The professors were excellent, and I learned a tremendous amount from my fellow students, too.”
