Bryce RiggsBryce Riggs ‘15

An internship with a local corporation led to a job offer when Bryce graduated from Heidelberg. He now serves as the Development Coordinator for the Seneca Industrial and Economic Development Corporation. He helps plan and coordinate events by working with local businesses and corporations, handling logistics, marketing, and business enhancement.

The business program offers a lot of opportunities inside and outside class. I chose Heidelberg because I saw how successful the alums were. The program here provides you a foundation from which you can choose your own path. You have options because there isn’t just one track for everyone.
