Central Penn College announces a new Entrepreneur Speaker Series that will showcase local business owners and leaders, as well as faculty members. The series will feature a mix of workshops and speaking events.
“Business has been part of Central Penn’s curriculum since the founding of the college in 1881, and small business is the biggest driver of today’s––and tomorrow’s––economy,” says Doug Fisher, interim chair of the college’s Business Department. “We want Central Penn to be a go-to resource not only for our students, faculty and staff, but the entire business community, too.”
All events are free and open to the public. The series kicks off with the workshop, “The American Dream – I am an Entrepreneur,” on Tuesday, June 11, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. in the Capital BlueCross Theatre on the college’s Summerdale campus. Participants will include:
  • Joyce A. Libby, Vice President/Financial Planner, with Hazlett, Burt & Watson, Inc. in Lancaster
  • Daniel Mowery, CEO/Owner, Midway Bowl in Carlisle
  • Doug Fisher, who in addition to his Central Penn College duties, has served in executive positions––including president and CEO––at five corporations with operations based in the capital region
The workshop will be moderated by Reference & Instruction Librarian Samantha Bise and will include a question-and-answer session. Currently, there are four events scheduled in the series through the fall. The other three will occur in the evening at the ATEC building and feature a single speaker. More events are expected to be added throughout the academic year.
