Sharing Magyar Experiences: Saturday, March 14th Program

The Cleveland Hungarian Museum cordially invites you to join us  for an afternoon program featuring three panelists with different ties to Hungary, as they present their personal views on three widely different topics. Our presenters will be Ms. Mireille Thomas, CWRU MBA student, speaking on entrepreneurship in Hungary,  Mr. Miklós Boros, speaking about the Reconnect Hungary Program, and Fr. Tamás Forrai, S.J., from Budapest, Hungary, speaking about high school education in Hungary. Fr. Forrai’s talk will be in Hungarian.

“Entrepreneurship in Hungary Today” Ms. Mireille Thomas, CWRU MBA student at The Weatherhead School, will describe her trip to Budapest over last spring break with members of her class to explore the advances in entrepreneurship in Hungary. If you are a CWRU alum or student, you will be pleased to know how this trip enriched the academic experience of the participating students.

” Discovering Hungarian Roots”– If you know a young college student with roots to Hungary, bring them along to hear Mr. Miklós Boros describe his experience last summer as part of the Reconnect Hungary Program.

” High School Education in Post 1989 Hungary” -This will be a Hungarian language presentation by Fr. Tamás Forrai, S.J., who will join us from Budapest, Hungary. He has extensive experience in the arena of education in Hungary, and an English language summary of his presentation will be available at the program. Fr. Forrai will also be able to address any questions in English.

Each panelist will give a 20 minute, informative talk on their topic, which will be followed by questions and answers. The audience will have the chance to meet and greet the presenters after the program, while tasting Hungarian pastries and coffee. Come and help us celebrate this very “Magyar” weekend (when Hungarian-Americans in Cleveland remember the events of 1848 throughout their community).

The program begins at 2 p.m. at the Museum, First Floor of the Galleria at Erieview, in Downtown, Cleveland. Parking is available for $3 in the Galleria’s underground heated garage. A donation of $10 will be collected to cover the costs of this program.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Cleveland Hungarian Development Panel.
