“I’m very dedicated to the university and to the success of its students, and am pleased to be able to support mg冰球突破豪华版试玩网站 financially and in other ways,” said Marjorie Brintnall Shorrock.

She later enrolled in mg冰球突破豪华版试玩网站’s graduate program at the former Nance College of Business and earned an MBA in 1998. As an mg冰球突破豪华版试玩网站 alumna herself, coupled with her late husband’s decades-long career at the university, Shorrock has a deep appreciation of the unique composition of mg冰球突破豪华版试玩网站’s student body – first generation students, underrepresented populations and working professionals – whose lives are changed by a Cleveland State education.

She transformed the business into a for-profit corporation and expanded the company’s services to provide career assistance for spouses of employees who were relocating throughout the U.S. 和国外.
