Okay, I admit both places were in Ohio so it wasn’t quite the glorious road trip that the title implies. Last week, I spent some quality time in Ohio and the first stop was Miami University and they were super cool . . . and creative. For example, The Programming Board has an amazingly large banner that they named Abraham, which stands for “A Banner Reaching Awesome Heights and Miracles.” Once I heard that, I knew I was with good people and that we were going to have a good time. I had a great time talking with everyone about personal safety and kickin’ booty when necessary. A big thanks goes out to Devin, the event coordinator and Scary Bad Guy. Devin is actually a repeat Scary Bad Guy and has mad skills in this area.
The next stop was Walsh University and, while they did not have a banner named Abraham, Bernie, one of the event coordinators, taught me a catchy song called “Stop,” which is a song about ending harassment and other inappropriate things. The crowd was awesome, very interactive and entertaining. I have to a throw out another big thank you to Steven, my very, VERY nervous Scary Bad Guy and Mike, one of the other awesome event coordinators. And, Mike don’t think I forgot about the pony I demanded in return for this seminar. I’ll keep an eye on my mail for it. 🙂
Overall, my trip to Ohio was a huge success and a lot of fun. I had a great time with all of the awesome students at Walsh and Miami!
