Benefits of the Switzer Network

Fellows: 

For some time now Jerry and Chris Kay of Media Interchange have been collecting Fellows' thoughts on the benefits of being part of the Switzer Network for us.  This short video they put together really tells the amazing story of the Foundation's commitment to individuals' success, so we wanted to share it with you.

We hope you'll give us your feedback in the comments section.  Here's to another great year with our newest Fellows and old friends!
