Favorite thing about Project GRAD Akron:

I love that PGA cares about each and every one of the students.  As the Finance person, I see the wonderful ways that PGA not only mentors the students but also help them financially with tuition scholarships, book scholarships and with other hardships the student might be experiencing.  PGA looks at the student in a holistic way and works to ensure success for the students from kindergarten to college and beyond

A little about Debra:

I was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. I came to Akron to attend The University of Akron and pursue a degree in Accounting. I have a love for numbers and that love lead to starting an Accounting business that is celebrating 32 years in business. One of my favorite projects in business is helping young people start their own businesses and pursue their dreams. I love to go camping and fishing at West Branch Park, playing golf, reading, meditation, and backyard barbecues with the family.
