ATC Accounting Class visits RECC Headquarters in Somerset

Vocational Teacher Dana Hurd's Accounting and Finance Foundations Class touring RECC

The Accounting and Finance Foundations class at the Wayne County Area Technology
Center recently took a trip to the SKRECC to talk with their accounting staff and to take a tour of
the facilities.

The tour began with a look at before and after pictures of the newly renovated building
and learning interesting facts about the new headquarters. They were then taken to the board
room where Michelle Herrman, Vice President of Finance and Member Services, talked to the
students about the business structure of the co-op, it’s membership, and her duties along with
those within her department. The students concluded their trip with a tour of the buildings led by
Joy Bullock and were treated to some snacks before they headed back to school.

The students had many good things to say concerning the information they received
about an accounting career and accounting in general. For instance, Taylor Frost said, “It was
interesting because a lot of the things they talked about, we have learned about this year.”

Sierra Hagerman reported, “I am excited to pursue this career and I am thankful they let
me and many other students into their workplace. I have gained a lot of insight and I couldn’t be
more ecstatic to venture into the future!”

Haley Roberts added, “The tour was amazing and exciting to see. My favorite room was
the dispatch room; it was cool to see how all those screens played a part in the company.”

Lauren Hughes was also grateful for the experience and said “I never realized how many
different jobs South Kentucky RECC had. It was a beautiful establishment.”

ATC Accounting and Finance Instructor Dana Hurd concluded, “We would like to thank
SKRECC for allowing our students such a great opportunity.”
