It has been a big week here in Cleveland, there are always new stories to cover and report on! Here are a few stand-outs from our Weekly News Wrap Up this week!
Navigating The Hiring Process
The first story I have for you is about a way for Clevelanders to get around the hiring process. It isn’t always easy to find a job, given setbacks you might face. The City of Cleveland held an informational session on how to navigate through this process. The workshop was designed to help the public gain insight into the steps involved in becoming employed.
This essential event took place at Cleveland’s Public Auditorium, and was free and open to anyone interested on learning more about the ins and outs of employment. There were many key people at the event, including Mayor Frank Jackson and a representative from The Cleveland Human Resources Department. Events like these are expected to see numbers increase as years go by.
Italian American Heritage Awards!
That’s Amore! Next up, we have the Italian American Heritage Awards! And coming from a full-blooded Italian, I loved putting the story together on this one! October is Italian-American Heritage Month, for those whom might not be aware. To kick-off the month-long celebration, The Annual Italian-American Heritage Awards Ceremony was held at the beautiful City Hall Rotunda.
“Our local Italian Community adds to the cultural diversity and that is the foundation on which we are building a brilliant future for our children and ourselves. By embracing our history and culture, we can create opportunities for increased prosperity, greater equality, and higher purpose in Cleveland.”- Mayor Frank Jackson.
^I completely agree with Mayor Jackson, the diversity our City has is amazing and it’s only fitting that we recognize those who go above and beyond for Cleveland!
Cleveland Clinic Breaks Ground
A new building is being added to the Cleveland Clinic! The Cleveland Clinic recently broke ground on the new multi-disciplinary cancer building on its main campus. The event featured a panel discussion on the future of cancer care, along with the history of this collaborative vision, and how it all came about. Mayor Frank Jackson was joined by workers of the Cleveland Clinic and many other local officials to commemorate this next step.
“This will be no ordinary building,” Clinic CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove promised 200 listeners under a large tent on the construction site at Carnegie Avenue and East 105th Street, where steel beams had already been stacked for use. Speaking to an audience that included philanthropic donors and Clinic staff members, Bolwell said he understood how emotionally devastating it can be for a patient to receive a cancer diagnosis. “We get it that this is a big deal,” he said. “We have to do something about it and to give the best care possible.”
A fundamental goal is to centralize cancer services so patients don’t have to walk from one building to another. This is a great step in helping the cancer patients in our area find light for their situation, and for them to know to never give up hope.
