Marj Carlson Hurst, Ph.D., dean of the School of Business and Leadership, recently received an interesting email:
Hello, I am a Malone Graduate MBA class of 2000. I am currently deployed to Kuwait with the Ohio Army National Guard. I would like to ask if you could use your influence to send me a 3 X 5 Malone University Flag so that I can fly it from the Flag Pole here. If you care to send any other Malone trinkets I will give them to my Soldiers. I am responsible for 117 Soldiers who are from all over Ohio.
SGM Joseph Miracle
Malone responded with a University flag for the company as well as water bottles for each of the soldiers, and a Pioneer t-shirt for Sergeant Miracle. The University received news that the company had also participated in a shadow run during the Akron Marathon.
"I did a half marathon. This is what we do for entertainment around here," said Sergeant Miracle.
