Local grads with big plans for their businesses, hope to help the Mansfield area thrive.

The third group of graduates from North Central State College's Entrepreneur Certificate Program celebrated their accomplishments and endeavors Wednesday night during their graduation celebration. They have big plans for the Mansfield area; some already own a business, others are just getting started.

Graduate Charles Anderson plans to open a teen dance center, called "Sublime Concoctions" to "bring Mansfield back to life"

Architect Matthew Stanfield found a new calling through this program; he makes and sells rain barrels and raised gardening beds through his website field9architecture.com

Author and Entrepreneur, Gary Shoeniger spoke to grads via Skype. His message? The word "Entrepreneur" seems scary, but it's easy to be one. He says find where your ideas, interests and abilities lie, then use them to help others solve their problems.
