Corporate Caring Award: Alumnus Michael Swartz

ECE alumnus (1984) and ECE Industrial Advisory Board member, Michael Swartz, was featured in an article by Columbus Business First this week.

The 2015 Corporate Caring Awards honor for-profit companies for their donations and commitment to volunteering for local charitable organizations and causes.

Business First focused on Swartz, as CEO of Lake Shore Cryotronics, which "regularly brings young people to learn about the company and the work that its emplopyees do."

Creating probes, sensors and other equipment used during scientific experiments, Swartz helps pay it forward by organizing Student Day, allowing employees to give presentations about their work to groups of high school students. Swartz also holds Shadow Day for engineering students at The Ohio State University.

Swartz told Business First (Find the full article HERE) that interactions with Lake Shore Cryotronics help give students a wider scope of science-related careers they might choose from.

"People like the opportunity to make these presentations," he told the magazine. "They like the opportunity to talk to students and young people. Our employees like the opportunity to give back."
