LEWISTOWN — Barbara Harer, Director of the Lewistown campus of South Hills School of Business & Technology, was recently honored as one of the top 100 business leaders in central PA in the January 27, 2017, edition of the Pennsylvania Business Central publication. Final nominees were selected from a 23 country radius for their professional and community contributions.
Barb Harer joined South Hills in 2002 as director of the Philipsburg campus and transferred to the Lewistown school location in 2009 to become its enthusiastic director. She became part of the South Hills family long before that as a student, where she earned two associate degrees in Business Administration, Management & Marketing and Information Technology.
Whether she’s serving the business community or dedicating her time and talents to community service organizations, Barb brings her strong leadership qualities and passion to everything she does. Barb knows the pleasure and reward of volunteerism and emphasizes its value to her faculty, staff, and students. She strongly encourages the students at the Lewistown campus to become involved in community service as well.
Congratulations are extended to Barb Harer for the “double-dip” of recognition she honorably attained within the last five months. South Hills was additionally proud of its dedicated school director, as Barb was recognized in October 2016 as a leading businesswoman in the state.
