Our Photographer Wins Huge Award!

Hey, Barbizon of Akron! You already know that we love celebrating our students, but we also love to celebrate those that we work with. Jim Metrisin has worked with Barbizon of Akron for years shooting their Barbizon of Akron photo shoots!

Jim was awarded, October 19th, with a great award from his city council and church parish! It was for his dedication as a Eucharistic minister, parish photographer and minister to those who are incarcerated. They applauded his dedication and service to the community and the way that Jim goes above and beyond in his service to St. Ignatius of Antioch Parish. This award is a BIG deal!

Also given an award was Sr. Pat Burke CSJ. Jim has been humbled by this experience and said that it was a great honor. We also would like to thank him for his service and hope that you will join us in celebrating this huge honor!

Jim will be the first one to tell you that he is no different from you or I. The secret to making your dreams come true is to begin following them! Also, when you give to your community, you also give back to yourself. Always be true to yourself, your dreams, and those around you, and life will bring you greatness!
