Donor Spotlight - Becky Montague EMBA '88, PFP '98
What is your current title and position? What does your current job entail?
I am the GE Energy Transmission & Distribution Account Manager for FirstEnergy Corp. and International Transmission Company.
What brought you to Weatherhead?
I went to Weatherhead while I was working as the Controller for a high growth company in the electric utility industry. The company was acquired by GE Energy in 1999.
Why do you choose to donate to Weatherhead?
Weatherhead has always provided many opportunities for continuing education, networking, and connecting with students. Donations to Weatherhead allow the school to provide scholarships and programs that benefit current students and all of our alum.
What is your favorite Weatherhead memory?
That’s difficult to say as I have had so many great times with my Weatherhead friends (faculty, staff, alum, students). I think some of the best times have been at continuing education/networking events that bring together all the above to strengthen ourselves and each other.
Do you have any advice for Weatherhead students currently in the same program you were in?
Tough it out. There is an end in site! Take full advantage of the expertise of the faculty – during the program and after! They are incredible. And, don’t miss going to graduation!
How are you or have you been involved with Weatherhead and why did you choose to get involved?
I’ve been on the Alumni Board for many years, served as Alumni President for three years, attend continuing education programs, serve as a student mentor, held mock interviews, participated on various panels for student programs, served on the strategic planning committee under Dean Anvari and on the WSOM Visiting Committee. I am also on the Board of the Alumni Association of CWRU.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Volunteering, obviously! I’m active in our local community of Sandusky, and I also enjoy entertaining friends & family, and being outside to enjoy Lake Erie and long walks.
