May Class Notes

Signature Class of 2012, The Rain/Shine Class

Michelle Powell ’12, with Let’s Make A Difference, has started a book club for young ladies in elementary school called “Can We Talk?”. This book club is in collaboration with Carey Knox, Music Teacher at Claggett Middle School, and is an element of the nonprofit (Let’s Make A Difference).


Signature Class of 2014, The Class On Fire

Annie Finnerty ’14, was recently appointed to the Community Action Wayne Medina Board of Directors.


Signature Class of 2024, The Total Eclipse Class

Jennifer Tama ’24, has a lot to celebrate!

“Gotcha Covered of Medina has recently expanded.  We now own Gotcha Covered of Green.  As a result of this expansion, we can take care of all clients in Southern Cuyahoga County, all of Medina County, West and South Summit, Stark and Wayne County.  We felt, given the inquiries we receive from folks in Wooster and Massillon area, it was the right thing to do to provide quality window treatments at a price most people can afford.

The business is still owned and operated by me.  I provide all of the in-home consultations, quoting, installation and follow up.  My customers know they will only work with one person and no red tape.

I have also been appointed to the Franchise Advisory Council, FAC.  This is a two-year position designed to help other franchisees navigate our space.  I am their voice for any concerns they have for speed resolutions.  I am also their one point of contact for communication.

Finally, I have been appointed to the Home Services Summit planning committee.  This is an event where several home services companies get together to connect and network.  We learn how to grow our businesses from like-minded owners.

I am on the verge of being a graduate of the Signature program.  This has been an amazing year.  I have truly enjoyed the friends I have made and the things I have learned.

I am currently on the selection committee for future Signature Class candidates.  This has, so far, been a great experience.  I am getting to meet people who are in the same position I was a year ago looking to step out into this adventure.

I am also looking forward to my youngest coming home from college for the summer.  I am planning to head off on a cruise to Alaska with my youngest.  It is on both of our bucket lists, and we cannot wait.  Next adventure is a trip down the California Coast in the summer.”
