Mid-Ohio ESC Announces Fall Administrative Conference

Mansfield, OH (May 3, 2024) — Area educators and educational administrators are invited to the Mid-Ohio Education Service Center's Fall Administrative Conference on Tuesday, August 6, 2024. The conference will take place at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center, 890 W. 4th Street in Mansfield.

The featured keynote speaker is Jim Tressel. James P. Tressel was the ninth president of Youngstown State University from 2014-2023. Under President Tressel’s leadership, YSU saw increased enrollment, improved academic quality of freshmen classes, and improved student retention. The university was also solidly focused on student success. In addition, the university hit record fundraising levels, keeping the lid on tuition costs, expanding scholarship opportunities and increasing both university and private housing options across campus.

A native of Northeast Ohio, Tressel graduated from Berea High School in suburban Cleveland in 1971. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Education from Baldwin-Wallace College in 1975 and a master’s degree in Education from the University of Akron in 1977. He also holds honorary degrees from YSU in 2001 and Baldwin-Wallace in 2003.

He came to YSU in 1986 as head football coach. In 15 years, including six as executive director of Intercollegiate Athletics, YSU appeared in the playoffs 10 times and won four national championships. In January 2001, Tressel left YSU to become head football coach at the Ohio State University. In 10 seasons, he guided the Buckeyes to the 2002 National Championship and seven Big Ten Championships. After leaving Ohio State, Tressel served as executive vice president for Student Success at the University of Akron and then returned to YSU in 2014 as president.
