“We always like to get students involved in the company and create positive learning experiences for them. We also encourage these students to come back to live and work in Martinsville-Henry County after graduating from college,” said Dru Ingram, Corporate Controller at Bassett Furniture and Hannah’s supervisor for the summer.
Hannah’s experience this summer has primarily revolved around financial reporting and retail operations projects. For her, the experience has helped confirm that she is headed on the right path in pursuing a career in accounting.
“This internship has given me more insight into the daily life of accountants. I’ve completed various assignments in school, but it is very different when applied in a real-world setting,” shared Hannah.
Hannah is a student of North Carolina Wesleyan College, where she also plays volleyball. She will graduate in May 2019. Hannah previously graduated from Bassett High School and Patrick Henry Community College.
