Garrett Rohrbaugh ’16, ’17 chose Shenandoah University because of its Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business and his interest in playing football for the Hornets, but he also liked the university for its beautiful location and welcoming environment.
Rohrbaugh’s fondest memory during his time at the university is playing on the football team during Saturday afternoon games. “Although we are considered a small D-3 school, we offer big opportunities and experiences, for example, the sports management program going to NCAA Championship Games and the Olympics,” said Rohrbaugh.
Head Football Coach Scott Yoder, Offensive Coordinator Stan Hodgin, Assistant Football Coach Kalvin Oliver ’04, Associate Head Football Coach and Defensive Coordinator Brock McCullough and Acting Dean of the Harry F. Byrd School of Business and Professor of Economics I. Bogdan Daraban, Ph.D., are great role models and leaders to him.
Rohrbaugh is a relationship manager at Water Street Financial in Winchester, Virginia. In his position, he is the direct point of contact for plan sponsors, business owners and human resources professionals, regarding all aspects of their company retirement plan. Rohrbaugh also works directly with recordkeepers and third party administrators to provide the best possible service to their clients.
The most rewarding part of Rohrbaugh’s career was finding an outstanding employer that provides him an amazing workplace atmosphere and knowledgeable co-workers that encourage him to keep learning and growing.
Shenandoah prepared Rohrbaugh for the career field because he was taught by strong professors in the business school and had the opportunity to meet his current boss, Ryan Oates ’17, while in the Master of Business Administration degree program.
Rohrbaugh’s advice to students is: “Get involved in every group or club you can. Network as much as possible.”
