Julius Hill, a 2011 graduate of MSOL Cohort 69, shared the following sentiment in a recent email sent to Connie Shroyer, MSOL program manager:
"I just wanted to express my gratitude to Dr. Dittmar, you, and the staff at Geneva College. I leave Pittsburgh much better than when I came. Thank you for the great roles you all played in making this happen. I am currently attending Regent University’s Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership program. I will soon begin a job with the National Institute for Health in Bethesda, MD as a Program Analyst, and my MSOL degree is the qualifying factor. The memories of my Geneva experience will always be cherished. Please relay this to Dr. Dittmar and the faculty and staff of the greatest school in Pennsylvania, Geneva College!"
