Graduate Puts Business Concepts to Work Managing Local Store



Using the skills that she developed in her business administration management program, Richmond Campus graduate Rebekah Watts has advanced from bartender to manager of the Hog Trough Bar and Liquor Store.

Rebekah’s accounting and computer skills that she gained at ANU have been essential to the day-to-day operations of the business, where her duties include working with the Point of Sale (POS) system, reconciling the cash drawer, and keeping inventory of stock and placing orders.  She feels grateful to her instructors at ANU, who gave her the one-on-one attention that she needed to grasp the management concepts that she learned. “[Accounting instructor Eric] Vogler always made it fun,” she recalled. “I just liked the teachers and the way that they taught. They told of some of their life experiences to help you with the lesson that you had at the time.”

As a recent graduate, Rebekah is thankful that, despite work and family obligations, she persevered to complete her program, which has given her a foundation of knowledge about the business world and brought her more financial stability. “Your goals are a lot clearer once you get through it,” she explained. “When you’re older it’s always hard, because you’ve got a whole [separate] life that you’ve got to do, but once you take the time and push through it, it’s great.”

Rebekah Watts found that the personal attention she received in her classes at the Richmond Campus helped her to master the accounting and computer technology skills that she uses in her job managing a local bar and liquor store.
