We are excited to be starting a wonderful new planning project with Malone University in Canton, OH. On the way from Cleveland to Canton, I-77 winds its way through Akron, the home of Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. We took a short detour through this truly unique mid-sized American city on our way to Malone. Akron is a unique mix of high-tech research facilities and quaint rust-belt American charm and definitely worth a second trip to really absorb the finer details.
Just a bit further south on I-77 is the City of Canton, most notable for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, whose stadium is actually the home of the Malone Pioneers, but also the home of a thriving Christian-focused university. We spent three days touring the campus and preparing for the summer planning work amid bright sunny skies and bursting Cherry trees, in early April no less. If this experience is an indication of the rest of our time in Canton, we are in for a terrific summer.
