Starting her own business was not Lyla Grandstaff’s first leap of faith.

A native of Rivesville, Lyla attended Fairmont State in the fall of 1980. “I wasn’t sure of a major and was working part-time. I was offered a full-time position and quit school,” she says.

Even though she was working, she says she wasn’t able to advance because she didn’t have a college degree.

On March 1, the School of Business hosted the annual Business Etiquette Dinner and Reception at Muriale’s Italian Restaurant in Fairmont.  In today’s highly competitive business world, business isn’t just conducted within the confines of an office.  Proper etiquette skills are extremely important for our students who must know how to conduct themselves and represent their company at the dining table and in other social settings, whether entertaining or being entertained.
