We welcome the following special guests:

Kent Wellington, Honorary Chair

Honorary Chair: Kent Wellington, CYC mentor, Director of Saturday Hoops, CYC Advisory Board Member, former CYC Board President and Chair, and attorney at Graydon.

Regina Carswell Russo, Master of Ceremonies

Master of Ceremonies: Regina Carswell Russo. Regina began her professional communications career in radio in Detroit and Grand Rapids, Michigan. She later switched to television news working in Lansing, Michigan before moving to Cincinnati, Ohio where she spent 15 years as anchor/reporter/host for the FOX affiliate.

Feeling a desire to stretch her talents in storytelling she became the Director of Marketing and Communications at the Cincinnati Art Museum. In her first two years the museum received remarkable local, regional and national media attention which translated to record attendance numbers. She became the Chief of Communications at the Contemporary Arts Center and elevated the brand awareness of the internationally recognized non-collecting museum. Her work there was recognized by the Cincinnati Business Courier, awarding Carswell Russo with a C-Suite Award for Chief Marketing Officer.

Regina is also a published writer, serving on the Editorial Board of Contributors for the Cincinnati Enquirer and Contributor to Polly Magazine, UPTOWN Magazine and Movers & Makers Magazine.
