Originally from Wisconsin, Park headed to Indiana for college and graduated from DePauw University with a degree in English and Communication. She realized quickly that a double major in her native tongue did not result in many lucrative job offers. She went back to school and obtained her teaching certification from the University of Michigan. She taught 4th and 5th grade while completing her M.A. in education from Marygrove College. In 1997, she moved to Australia and taught U.S. History. After coming to Ohio, she attended Case Western Reserve University Law School and went on to practice law in Cleveland at Baker and Hostetler. She met Jon Park, and he convinced her to marry him and move to Medina County. She has lived happily here with him and their four children (her two sons and his two daughters) for four years.
Park has been an active member of the community, serving as a board member for United Way of Medina County, SHC/the Arc of Medina County, and as a member of the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center’s Citizen Advisory Committee. In 2016 and 2017, she was the chairperson for Taste of Medina County and will be taking on that challenge again this year.
Terri (Hradek) Greene, Class of 2012, has joined the Leadership Medina County team. She has been the Cuyahoga Community College, Brunswick University Center Director since 2010. A new job isn’t the only thing new for Hradek. In July she married Bill Greene and is now Terri Greene. She will begin working as the Community Impact Director on September 4, 2018.
The Director of Community Impact is responsible for developing, coordinating, directing, and tracking education events, alumni engagement, and marketing. Since its founding in 1991, with the purpose to connect leaders to advance community, Leadership Medina County has served over 1,000 graduates who remain involved in Medina County. It is nearly impossible to find a board or effort where Leadership Medina County graduates are not involved.
“I’m thrilled to join Leadership Medina County,” said Greene. “I have a passion and drive to serve the community and build our leaders for tomorrow.”
