JARED DRUMMER AEB PROFILE
I had a management major and a minor in economics
Where are you from?
I am originally from Dayton, Ohio.
Where do you currently live?
3 words to describe yourself?
Reliable, outgoing and thoughtful.
What is the most interesting thing about you?
This is corny but, I helped my class win the 1st week goal for alumni weekend. We were the first to reach our fundraising goal and are now on the trophy.
How did you find Hiram?
I was recruited by the swim coach so I came to Hiram to swim and played golf.
What clubs were you involved in?
I was in senate, I was the president my senior year, I was in the investment club, on the senior class gift committee and water polo. I swam and played golf, intramural sports and was in the outdoors club.
Your favorite Hiram traditions?
I did campus days, volunteering locally for the community. During one, we went to a food bank in Kent, another year I helped to clean up a room of old church stuff in the bottom of Booth Centennial, I cleaned out the old racket ball courts in the gym too.
Craig Moser. An economics professor, I enjoyed sitting in his office to talk about school life and things outside of the classroom. He passed away a few years ago; he had been the mayor of Garrettsville.
I have a favorite member of the staff too: Eric Riedel. It was similar to Moser how we were able to connect on a personal level and he helped me during my senior year with my transition into the real world.
What is your favorite location on campus?
I spent most of my time in the athletic center. Back then, we did not have the new dining hall or the townhouses. That is living in style; I would have lived in the townhouses for sure if we had them back in my time!
What is your favorite Hiram memory?
Hiram gave me the chance to be involved with two collegiate sports, receive a great education and prepare to move on to be successful in my career.
What is the most important thing that you learned from Hiram?
Hiram gave me the opportunities to learn how to manage time because I was in so many things. But, I also gained skills in being able to communicate with leaders across campus, so I had no issues meeting or taking with higher level people in my future career.
Do you feel that Hiram prepared you for your future?
What is your current employment? Retired? What are you doing now?
After Hiram, I went straight to work and started with National City Bank, (PNC present) and am now in upper level management. I am an operations manager senior. I manage part of the cash services team, I am responsible for operation of foreign currency remote safe solutions (a safe product that we offer) and cash logistics.
What do you enjoy in your spare time?
I like golfing, cooking and spending time with my family. Our new, ten-month old son keeps us very busy. Outside of family, the Alumni Executive Board is the other thing.
What brought you back to Hiram and why the Alumni Executive Board (AEB)?
I joined back in 2014 because I was looking for a way to continue to get back to Hiram. I enjoy coming back to campus three times a year and like being able to have a voice to support the alumni community.
