The Swanton High School accounting program recently held a Swanton Women in Business symposium at the University of Toledo College of Business.

Nine former alumni met with the junior and senior female students in the accounting program. The alumni who volunteered for this event were Anna Harless, Manager of Procurement with the Andersons, Inc; Allison Mishka, CPA with Plante Moran; Claire Ledigh, CPA, Assurance Senior with Plante Moran; Mandi Steinhelfer, accountant with DMB Endeavours; Madelyn Silveous, CPA with Plante Moran; Dana Lumbrezer, CPA, Risk Consulting Manager with Gilmore Jason Mahler, LTD; Bethann Simon, Finance Specialist with NWOCA; Elizabeth Howard, HR Benefits Administrator with Rudolph Libbe Group and Victoria Pinson Bloom, Senior Assurance Associate with Gilmore Jasion Mahler.

The event started with a meet and greet event at Starbucks to allow students to introduce themselves to alumn and talk about three possible career paths they are exploring. The event moved to the College of Business to allow a forum for students to ask alumni a multitude of questions that deal with finding a career of value and the characteristics of success. Discussion carried over to a group luncheon at BD’s Mongolian Grill.

Swanton accounting students are part of a two-year College Credit Plus program that is funded through Penta Career Center with students receiving college credit with their high school course work.
