This lecture series was created in 2012 to provide an opportunity for University of Akron students to learn from local business and community service leaders. The guest speakers exemplify the qualities, ethics and sense of public service demonstrated and valued by the late H. Peter Burg,former CEO of FirstEnergy and treasured University of Akron alumnus.A native son of Akron, Mr. Burg had a special love for his community and his alma mater, The University of Akron, where he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in 1968 and 1970, respectively. Mr. Burg led by example, endearing those around him with a style of leadership that incorporated the very best of what he learned from his own mentors.This lecture series was inspired by such experiences.
