Event description

Description

Our March speaker will be Heather Herron. She brings a wealth of leadership and professional experience to our First Fridays speaker team.

Heather Herron joined the Sweetwater team in May of 2018. Prior to that, Heather spent 17 years as the evening anchor at Fort Wayne's CBS affiliate, WANE-TV. Her broadcasting career began in 1990 and she worked at several radio and television stations in Indiana and Michigan as a reporter, producer, and news anchor.

She holds a B.S. in Telecommunications from Ball State University. Her work as a journalist has resulted in several awards, including a Regional Emmy. Heather's role at Sweetwater capitalizes on her extensive knowledge of media and public relations. She works closely with other members of the Executive Team to showcase the growth of Sweetwater, improve community involvement and engagement, and continue the philanthropic work of Sweetwater and Chuck & Lisa Surack.

Heather has been involved in numerous non-profit agencies. She is an active volunteer for the local chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana, is a past president of the Board for Family & Children's Services (now Headwaters Counseling), and the president of the parents club at her daughters' school.

She and her husband Jim stay very busy with their two teenage daughters.

After this event we will be partnering with the Better Business Bureau to host a forum on how their company can assist your business grow in the area. This event will start at 9:30am in the same room as First Fridays. We will be sending more information about this forum soon!
