Leadership Tuscarawas Events | Kent State University
Conference of Excellence

LTs Conference of Excellence is an event to bring the community together to begin to think about our heart of leadership for Tuscarawas County.
Our 2016 speaker was author Todd Gonger. He led us on a journey of discovery deep into the heart of leadership where many of life’s most difficult questions on peace, passion and purpose can be found. Attendees were challenged to think more deeply about what leadership is, who you’re called to be as a leader, and ultimately, why you’re here on this earth.

History's Future

In collaboration with Kent State University at Tuscarawas, Office of Business and Community Services, College for Kids Program, History's Future is an off campus course with tours of Warther’s Museum, Auman TV Museum, Dover Riverfront Park, Dennison Railroad Depot, Uhrichsville Clay Museum, Trumpet in the Land, Tuscarawas County Center for the Arts, Kent State University at Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center, Tuscarawas County Historical Society, Zoar Village, Fort Laurens, Sugarcreek Cuckoo Clock and Alpine Hills Museum. Students will compare technology from the past with the present. This will include the use of ground censoring radar and a hands-on archaeological dig along with stepping inside an actual working cuckoo clock. You will also learn the technology of making and sharpening knives as well as understand the workings of everyday items like the television. Finally, this will all tie together through discussion to help students preserve and share our history for the future by providing a framework for volunteerism and civic involvement. This class is made possible in part through a grant from Tuscarawas Valley Heritage, Inc. and the Tuscarawas County Historical Society.

Grape Escape Wine Tour

This event is one for friends to travel together around the Tuscarawas Valley and experience unique wine tastings and experiences at our local wineries.  In 2016, we enjoyed a Tasting Flight coupled with fruit and muffins at School House Winery.  We then toured the historical building at Baltic Mill Winery and enjoyed an expansive tasting.  We then had a behind the scenes tour and tasting at Swiss Heritage Winery and Broadrun Cheesehouse.  Our day ended with a lab tour and a personal wine tasting followed by a BBQ dinner at Breitenbach Winery.
