(Shepherd hosts Professional Connections Day for students April 5)

Shepherdstown, WV--The Shepherd University Office of Alumni Relations, School of Business and Social Sciences, and Career Services will sponsor a Professional Connections Day for Shepherd students Tuesday, April 5, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Shepherd alumni from the business community, both private and public, will participate in several different sessions that will cover topics ranging from career development and workplace communications for small business entrepreneurs, corporate, government, and nonprofits. The topics will be geared toward helping students prepare for a career after college. The day will also focus on how business, accounting, and economics are interrelated in the business community. The morning sessions will be followed by a networking lunch to allow participants to meet the business professionals.

Registration will begin at 8:10 a.m. in the Student Center on Tuesday, April 5 followed by a continental breakfast in the Storer Ballroom. At 9 a.m. Dr. Suzanne Shipley, president of Shepherd University and Scott Bradford Doleman '95, president of the Alumni Association, will introduce keynote speaker Delegate Tiffany Lawrence '04, marketing and public relations manager, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, and member of the West Virginia House of Delegates.

"Professional Connections Day, open this year to all students, is intended to inform our students on important aspects of career development, inspire them by real-life stories of success, and give them opportunities to network and perhaps to develop long-lasting relationships with representatives from business and government," said Dr. Ann Legreid, Dean of the School of Business and Social Sciences.
