Barbara E. Harer

School Director

South Hills School of Business & Technology Lewistown Campus

Barb Harer has been a school director at branch campuses of South Hills School of Business and Technology since July 2002. She started at the Philipsburg campus and transferred to the Lewistown school location in 2009.

As a director, Harer believes that she can fuel Mifflin County’s potential by guiding its community members through higher education.

“There are many hard working men and women who want to make their hometown, state and country a better place. I believe I can help the region by continuing to live out South Hills School’s mission by, “Teaching People….Changing Lives,” in all of the communities that I touch.,” she said.

At the Lewistown campus, Harer is involved with a number of community organizations: board secretary of the Juniata River Valley Chamber of Commerce; Mifflin and Juniata County Business & Education Committee, Mifflin County Academy of Science & Technology Advisory Board and Steering Committee, Mount Union High School Business Department Advisory Board, Juniata Valley Employer Advisory Council, Board Secretary of the Lewistown Kiwanis, South Hills Circle K Advisor, South Hills Phi Beta Lambda Advisor and Steering Committee member of the South Hills Goose Day Fun Fest.

She also volunteers for Toys for Tots, local food banks, and American Cancer Society Relay for life.

Barb lives in Livonia, Pa. with her husband, Duane and their dog, Rudy. In her free time she enjoys photography, singing and is an “enthusiastic cheerleader for the civil war re- enactment groups that Duane participates with across the east coast.”
