Jena Powell to speak to Greenville BPW

Jena Powell
Greenville, OH May 22, 2018 - The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club is making preparations for their next meeting which will be held on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 at 6:30 pm in the Brick Room at the Brethren Retirement Community located at 750 Chestnut, Greenville. The meeting will be hosted by the newly elected officers: President Peggy Foutz, Vice President Kasey Christian, Secretary Sonya Crist, Treasurer Dorothy Poeppelman, and Assistant Treasurer Susan Shields.

Jena Powell, the recent 80th House District primary election winner, Darke County resident, and Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Huntington Outdoor will be speaking to the group. She will talk about her love of Darke county, how she started her first company at age 17, and how she wants to give back to the community through both the business and political realms. Powell grew up in Darke County with her six siblings in a family that has been farming for generations. After receiving her degree in Business Marketing from Liberty University, she began working to build her own company and at age 18 made her first sales call here in Darke County. She says “Thankfully, much like the citizens of Southern Darke and Miami counties, the business owners in our community are some of the kindest, and most supportive you could hope to find. They were patient with me when I was just starting out, stammering through my sales pitch”. She will share more about her journey as a woman in business.

Members are also currently selling tickets to their Chicken BBQ fundraiser to be held on June 20, 2018. Tickets need to be purchased by June 10th.
