‘Men of Honor’ dispense advice to Withrow students

Three “Men of Honor, A Salute to African-American Men” honorees spent time with several Withrow University High School students March 7, 2018, providing advice about career and life.

Howard Elliott, founder and president of Elliott Management Group; Dr. Keith Melvin, Mercy Health; and Phillip Cox, president and CEO of Cox Financial Corp., named “Men of Honor” in previous years, shared the trials, triumphs and accomplishments through life’s journey.

A question-and-answer session followed, giving the youths the opportunity to gain knowledge and network with the business executives.
