Businesses helped students at Fort Drum


As part of their Strategic Management Course at Columbia College, nine students were given the opportunity to select a local business of their choice. The intent of the project was to have the student interview the owner or manager to discuss daily operations and long-term goals.

The interviews took place in September, and nine different businesses were selected. The interview questions were prepared by the students and submitted to me. The students then contacted each business representative to schedule the interviews.

The students covered a range of topics.

Lacey Northrup, a student at Columbia, met with Lisa Weber, the CEO of Timeless Frames in Watertown. Lisa provided Lacey with a history of the company. In addition, the mission statement, strategy, internal structure and daily operations of the company were discussed.

The students, after their interviews were concluded, presented their findings in a classroom setting on the Fort Drum campus.

Columbia College wishes to thank the following businesses, which made this project a terrific learning experience for the students:

Bella’s (Clayton), Colonial Voluntary Benefits (Watertown), Dick’s Sporting Goods (Watertown), Jreck Subs (Philadelphia), Les Savons De LouLou! (Carthage), Phyllis Foster Driving School, Ramsey’s Pizzeria (Adams Center), Sonny’s Garden Center (Watertown) and Timeless Frames (Watertown).
