A native of Cleveland, OH, Mr. Banta is the proud grandson of a West Virginia coal miner who moved the family to NE Ohio to mine for salt underneath Lake Erie when the coal mines dried up. Raised in a blue-collar area dominated by steel companies and auto manufacturers, he was taught early on the principles of hard work, integrity, loyalty, honesty and respect by parents and grandparents. As a result, he was the first in his family to attend college, earning a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing from Kent State University and a Master of Business Administration degree in Marketing from Cleveland State University. His next academic initiative is to begin working on a Master of Jurisprudence, Health Law and Policy at Texas A&M.
