Thank you to YSU for having Attorney Paul Perantinides be such an important part of your commencement.
“The guest speaker Saturday was Atty. Paul Perantinides, a Campbell native and a 1966 YSU graduate. He is a partner in the law firm Perantinides and Nolan Co., Akron, and has been listed every year since 1995 in Best Lawyers in America.”
“It all started here. It’s hard to believe it all started right here,” Perantinides said, noting that his life has changed dramatically since his childhood, growing up in the shadows of the former Youngstown Sheet & Tube. He said community service is an important part of his life, both personally and professionally, and he encouraged the graduates to adopt that attitude as well.
“Focus on giving, and your life will be one of service, and it will exceed your wildest dreams,” he said.”
