"I enjoy living in Portage County because there are three huge pillars in the community. Industry, Advocacy, and an Appreciation for Nature. There are huge corporations here that are accessible to the community for both jobs and as partners in fundraising. They also sponsor activities and the winding trails and natural scenes bear their names on plaques. There is always an opportunity for individuals to create positive change and make big ripples. All it takes is a decent idea, patience, and cooperation."
