April 25 was “Bring a Girl to CRE Day” and members Diana Whisenhant and Diane Strojin hosted girls that day to promote CRE careers to future female leaders.

Helen Jean Whisenant, 2 ½ year old daughter of CREW Cleveland Past President (2014) Diana Whisenant spent the day helping the corporate services brokerage team at Hanna Commercial.   See Helen’s photos below to see how she quickly learned how to take command of her desk and engage with Hanna colleagues. 
Katie Lyons, a freshman at Baldwin-Wallace University, spent the day with Diane Strojin, CREW Cleveland’s Foundation Champion, learning about Commercial Real Estate Banking, including Loan Closing, Construction Loan Administration, Portfolio Monitoring and Relationship Management.  In addition, she spent time with CREW Cleveland Network Liaison Callie Cripps, from Downtown Cleveland Alliance to learn about building development throughout the city and how the DCA promotes Cleveland as the premier place to “Live, Work and Play”.  See photos below of Katie with CRE Bankers and Callie Cripps from DCA.
