The business case for a weekend MBA

The Herald Business Journal

Shannon Affholter has always valued education.

The son of a high school teacher, he grew up in Toppenish in a home where education was highly regarded as something that was important to pursue. Affholter, 45, said for a long time he's also had a keen interest in business. 

A desire to better himself through continued education and a natural curiosity about the business world led Affholter, an Everett City Council member and the vice president of business and economic development for Economic Alliance Snohomish County, back to the classroom.
