Comerica VP Inspires Students

Matt Barnhart, VP, Corporate Communications – Michigan Market for Comerica, recently visited with 11th – 12th grade DECA students, sharing his professional journey. His presentation was passionate and engaging as he involved every student.

DECA facilitator, Renate Matthews, shared that he encouraged and inspired her students. “I will always remember something he said to the students: ‘You’re the greatest asset in explaining your own
story; you need to have your authentic voice.’ I think my students will remember that as well.”

We are grateful to Matt Barnhart for sharing his time and talent with our students, and for Comerica’s partnership with Cornerstone. Exposing our students to the workplace and beyond enlarges their perspective on what is possible.
