Katie Moore of Plymouth and David Dauch of Wakeman gained insight into what it takes to be an entrepreneur. The two area residents were among five Ashland University students who attended Immersion Week hosted by the Entrepreneur Education Consortium. They were among 35 students from the seven universities who attended the event Aug. 12 to 17 at Cleveland State University.
The students attending heard several entrepreneurs give talks about being an entrepreneur, received training from university professors and participated in joint exercises with the college students from the other universities. The week ended with Ashland students competing against the teams from the other six universities. It was a stiff competition over various business concepts with the judges stating that it was a difficult decision to select a winner from all of the projects that were submitted with only five days development. The Case Western Reserve University team won the competition.
The five Ashland University students developed a Web-based provider service which many of the judges felt was a very good project. The students are bringing this project back to AU to continue with a business plan and to seek financing to make this concept a reality.
A 2004 Willard High School graduate, Moore is the daughter of Timothy and Susan Moore, of Plymouth.

Loyola University of New Orleans created the Loyola Institute for Ministry Extension Program (LIMEX) in response to the expressed need of Roman Catholic dioceses with little or no access to graduate degree programs in ministry or religious education. The LIMEX degree/certificate program is a fully accredited program sponsored by the Diocese of Toledo and offered in the local area.
Seven students in this diocese have completed four years of rigorous study and have completed the requirements for a master's degree in pastoral studies (MPS). This is the sixth class to graduate from the Diocese of Toledo since the program began here in 1996. The 2007 graduates are: Deborah Chimahusky of Sacred Heart Parish in Fremont, Deacon Thomas Dubois of Resurrection Parish in Lexington, Sara Fitzgerald of St. Paul Parish in Norwalk, Shellie Gabel of St. Wendelin Parish in Fostoria, Cindy McLaughlin of St. Paul Parish in Norwalk, Martha Tansey of St. Mary Parish in Wakeman, and Janet Wilhelm of St. Aloysius Parish in Bowling Green.
The graduates traveled to New Orleans in May to participate in graduation ceremonies there and were honored in the diocesan celebration for the Loyola University graduates on Aug. 19. The festivities took place at St. Paul beginning with a Mass of Thanksgiving. Family, friends and colleagues joined the graduates for a reception following the Mass. The Rev. Ed Littelmann, a 2002 Loyola University (LIMEX) graduate, was the principal celebrant and homilist.
