Lisa Huntsman, president of Lauren Manufacturing, will be the first featured speaker for the second year of programming for the Women's Success Series. Huntsman will speak on Nov. 1 as part of the event being held from 8:15 to 11:30 a.m. at Kent State University at Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia.
As president, Huntsman is responsible for the direction and growth of Lauren Manufacturing. She has progressed through the ranks at Lauren by consistently achieving goals and establishing new processes to advance the company and expand business opportunities both domestically and internationally. She received her Bachelor of Science in Polymer Science from Eastern Michigan University and her M.B.A. from Ashland University.
The Women's Success Series, which began November 2012, is designed to bring together women of all ages who seek better lives, professionally and personally. The series is intended to be a catalyst for women to think differently about success, a catalyst to think differently about themselves and a catalyst to think differently about how they live, work and play in Tuscarawas County.
Three women are featured each year. The 2013-14 sessions include Huntsman on Nov. 1, Joanne Limbach on Feb. 7, 2014, and Libby Drabik Wallick on April 4, 2014. During each session, participants will hear from these dynamic women who have enjoyed a measure of success right here in Tuscarawas County. Each session will have a book selection that the audience will read and partake in a discussion designed to move each participant to the next level in life.
The series premier sponsors are the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum and Kent State University at Tuscarawas in collaboration with Dominion East Ohio and Tuscarawas County Public Library System.
Planning committee members include Michelle McMorrow Ramsell, director of the Tuscarawas County Public Library System; Pam Patacca, public relations coordinator, Kent State Tuscarawas; Tracey Stevens, external affairs manager, Dominion East Ohio; and Wendy Zucal, director, Dennison Railroad Depot Museum.
Cost to attend each session is only $10 which includes a continental breakfast. Books associated with each session are available at any Tuscarawas County Public Library for check out, or can be purchased at the Dennison Depot. The price of the books will vary but will include a discount off the standard price, when possible. The November 2013 book selection is Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg.
