LEWISTOWN — South Hills School of Business & Technology is proud to announce that Barbara Harer, Director of the South Hills Lewistown location, was recently recognized as a leading business woman who is making a difference in central Pennsylvania.
Barb is one of 36 women honored in The Pennsylvania Business Central’s Women Making A Difference September 2016 publication. The PA Business Central is a business journal which covers 23 counties in central Pennsylvania. The women were chosen for this recognition because of their inspiring influence as role models in business and in their communities.
Barb isn’t just an employee at South Hills, she’s also an alumna, having earned two specialized associate degrees at South Hills in Business Administration–Management & Marketing in 1987 and in Computer Information Systems (now called Information Technology) in 1998.
With her extensive background at South Hills, Barb demonstrates her knowledge and strong leadership qualities to her students, faculty, and staff on a daily basis. Her high standards of professionalism, inspiration, integrity, innovation, and optimism make South Hills Lewistown a motivational and pleasant place to work and study. Barb is greatly appreciated by all.
It is Barb’s spirit for serving her students and the local community that gives her this level of recognition within the region. The list of community organizations and advisory boards on which she serves is extensive. With a strong desire to enrich the lives of her students, Barb also involves them in a number of rewarding community events in Lewistown throughout the year.
Barb Harer lives in Livonia with her husband and Civil War re-enactor, Duane, and their fuzzy-friend, Rudy, the dog.
