SGWS Honors Alumni James Herold

»Posted by on Apr 6, 2016 in School News | 0 comments

 

JamesHerold2At this year’s 27th Annual Benefit Auction, April 23rd at Greystone Hall, Spring Garden Waldorf School will honor and award an alumni who has made a difference and brought about positive change in the world.  This award, “The Waldorf Difference”, is being given to Akron native and Commarke President, James Herold, for his contributions to the Akron business community as well as his commitment to giving back to SGWS as a volunteer basketball coach.

James is a recent graduate of the University of Akron and startup executive at Commarke Marketing Agency here in Akron, OH, which specializes in target marketing to the Millennial demographic. James is also giving directly back to the Spring Garden community as a volunteer in our athletic department as a basketball coach for our young men’s Jaguar team. Jim has given our students positive mentoring, interactions, and actions worthy of imitation for our students.

James graduated from Spring Garden Waldorf School in 2005 and still remembers the influence of his teacher, Theo Michaels, and his Waldorf education.

“My Waldorf education curated my ability to find a distinct sense of what is new or individual about a client’s business, which then allows me to creatively approach their marketing needs. I attribute how I work through Commarke – developing unique ideas and out of the box thinking  – to my time at SGWS.

We are pleased to honor James Herold at this year’s Spring Garden Annual Auction Benefit at Greystone Hall as our The Waldorf Difference Award Winner.
