Marsha Freeland is the Featured Speaker for the February Women’s Success Series

Marsha Freeland, director of the Norma Johnson Center, will be the featured speaker for the Women’s Success Series on Feb. 3, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Kent State University at Tuscarawas. The session also includes a discussion based on John Maxwell’s book, Intentional Living, available at any Tuscarawas County Public Library. Cost to attend is $15 when paid in advance and $20 if paid at the door. The fee includes a continental breakfast. 

Under Freeland’s 12 years of leadership, the Norma Johnson Center, a 303 acre conservation center and nature preserve in Dover, has grown dramatically in services and public awareness. She works closely with the Center’s nonprofit board, the Tuscarawas County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Tuscarawas County Commissioners to operate the center. Freeland is also very involved with local schools, community members and businesses along with several community organizations.

Now in its fifth year of programming, the Women’s Success Series features outstanding women who share their success stories. In doing so, they inspire the audience to move forward in their own lives and careers. The series is designed for women of all ages and from all walks of life.
