Cynthia Connolly (MPA ’11)
As a member of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, Connolly has worked for years to advocate for native and indigenous communities. Even her work as director of programming for The City Club of Cleveland allows her the chance to amplify those indigenous voices that are often overlooked.

Cleveland Mayor-elect Justin Bibb selected Bradford Davy as the Transition Manager for his transition team that will help determine his goals and priorities as he prepares to take office in January. With this new role, Davy leaves his previous post as director of regional engagement with The Fund for Our Economic Future, a consortium of foundations, higher education institutions, corporations, government institutions, and civic associations.
Cathryn Greenwald (MAES/JD '09)
Greenwald's vast experience helped expand the Cleveland law firm Thompson Hine’s real estate lender representation platform and earned her a spot as partner. In addition, she is a board member for CHN Housing Partners and is chair of the Cleveland chapter of the Urban Land Institute.
Allison Lukacsy-Love (anticipated MSUS '22)
Lukacsy-Love's work as director of the department of planning and development for the City of Euclid has transformed the city’s shoreline into what is now a popular park for both residents and visitors.
