Other Experiences


    Miss Stacie Keith is a senior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and will be graduating in May 2011. She is currently employed with IUP at the Center for Student Success Program as a Peer Mentor as well as an Inter for an Internship that she created herself. Stacie also works part time on a family dairy farm on the weekends when she is at home. Stacie assists to milk cows and takes care of the young cattle as well as help out anywhere help is needed on the farm.

    Stace has an extremely impressive work ethic. Stacie has been taking 18-19 credits most semesters at college so that she can take additional Marketing classes before she graduates. She can handle very heavy workloads with grace and punctuality. She has a very addictive personality. She is pleasant to be around and is incredibly knowledgable. She treats those around her with respect and acts professional with authority figures. She enjoys helping those around her even if it means they do better than she did for a particular task. She wants everyone to succeed and will help anyone get to where they want to be in their career as best as she can. She is creative in all areas of her life and continues to show that everyday.
