Lisa Marie

Age: 21

Residence: Monroeville

Family: Mother, Lynn Wagner; father, Rick Marie; sister, Laura Marie

Education: Junior at Duquesne University, majoring in supply chain management and information systems

Background: Marie spent a semester abroad studying at the National University of Ireland, Galway. She is preparing for a summer internship with Alcoa Inc. on the North Shore, has held consecutive internships at Westinghouse Electric Co. and is finishing an internship at Global Growth and Innovation, Supply Chain.

Noteworthy: Recently awarded the 2010 R. Gene Richter Scholarship. The Richter Scholarship program, which includes a financial award and professional mentoring services, is the largest nationally recognized scholarship in the field of supply chain management.

Quote: "I came to Duquesne, an undecided business major. But after taking several classes, I decided I wanted to be in supply chain. It is an emerging profession that involves integrating different activities to reach a goal. I've been very fortunate. I've had many opportunities that made me realize how much I enjoyed working with people and bringing people together to reach a goal. A lot of people have shaped me in getting me to where I am today."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
