Jennifer Chung – AccuWeather

For nearly 60 years, AccuWeather has belied one of Bob Dylan’s most iconic lyrics: “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” What began as a service in central Pennsylvania disseminating localized weather forecasts has blown up like an all-encompassing low-pressure front. Today, AccuWeather forecasts are found online, in print, over […]

Jennifer L. Ervin – Shelby County Schools

Most homecoming celebrations involve wearing school colors, singing the school song, a pep rally and then the big game. For Jennifer L. Ervin, homecoming has been a bit more involved.

On a calm October day, Jill Javor, husband Attila and 6 1/2 year-old son, Ryan, stand beside U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman, their ribbon cutting scissors poised and ready.

Jennifer Turner Harrigan – Symphony Talent

Mention a certain, locally based national health and wellness organization to folks in the greater Pittsburgh area, and most of them will know exactly who you’re talking about.
