Speare Memorial Hospital president & CEO honored by Plymouth State University student group

PLYMOUTH — The President and CEO of Speare Memorial Hospital was honored November 5 by the Plymouth State University student group, Marketing Association of Plymouth State (MAPS). Michelle McEwen '81, was named to the MAPS Alumni Hall of Fame at the Delta Mu Delta annual awards dinner. McEwen, a resident of the Plymouth area for nearly 30 years, said she was surprised and honored to be recognized by her alma mater.

"I'm truly humbled by it," McEwen said. "I think the experiences that I got here were wonderful; I had professors had real-life experience, they could apply what we learned from a textbook to their jobs, whether it was as a tax attorney or a CPA, that really helped. The small classes were also very helpful- it was more of a dialogue than a lecture, which is a great way to learn."

McEwen, a summa sum laude graduate of Plymouth State, is a Certified Public Accountant who has lent her expertise to several local and regional boards of directors, including the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, Foundation for Healthy Communities, Meredith Village Savings Bank and NH Mutual Bancorp. Previous to her leadership role at Speare Memorial Hospital, McEwen served as the Vice President for Finance at the New Hampshire Hospital Association and as manager at Ernst and Whinney, one of the world's largest accounting firms.

This was the seventh year the MAPS organization has named a PSU alumnus to their Hall of Fame at the annual Delta Mu Delta dinner, which also serves as a networking opportunity for PSU business students and alumni. Previous Hall of Fame recipients include Jason Lyon, '94, CEO of the Common Man Family of Restaurants, Larry Haynes, '86, President and CEO of the Grappone Companies and Plymouth business owner Scott Biederman, '75.
