Joseph E. Kloecker, MBA, CPA
Joe Kloecker’s lengthy career in finance began after he graduated from Gannon University in 1974 with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and then joined Marine Bank as a staff accountant. While employed there, Joe obtained his MBA from Gannon and passed the CPA exam on his first attempt. As a senior management team member at the bank, Joe served as Senior Vice President and Controller.
When PNC acquired Marine Bank, Joe was instrumental in the transition at the local and corporate levels in his senior financial role. After 20 years at Marine/ PNC, Joe and his wife Diane decided to remain in Erie. He joined HBKS Wealth Advisors as a Senior Financial Advisor, a position he remained in for 27 years until his retirement in November 2022.
Over the years, Joe was a highly active member of the Erie Community, serving in a volunteer capacity for many organizations, most often in a leadership role. Joe served on the Finance Committee and as President in the early years of the Cathedral Prep Advisory Board. He spent many years volunteering at Gannon University, working on the Annual Fund, and serving on the College of Engineering and Business Advisory Board. In that role, Joe also served on the search committee for a new Dean and various professor positions. As an undergraduate, Joe served as President of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and as a member of the Interfraternity Council. Joe has remained an active Pike alum, organizing numerous reunions over the years. In October 2022, Joe received Gannon University’s Distinguished Alumni Award.

Lisa Campagne Winschel
Stephanie Powers is the senior advisor for public policy and partnerships at the Council on Foundations, managing the federal relations portfolio for the government affairs department. In her work on behalf of the Council’s 860+ members, Ms. Powers identifies opportunities to connect foundations and government for mutual benefit, bringing together the public agenda and philanthropic interests for collaboration and leveraging of investments. In addition, her work helps to ensure that the philanthropic sector has a voice within the Executive branch of the federal government to help advance philanthropic missions and the greater good. She plans to retire from the Council on May 5, 2023.
Before joining the Council in 2007, Ms. Powers was the CEO of the National Association of Workforce Boards and held positions in the Clinton Administration. The Secretaries of Labor and Education appointed her as National School to Work Director from 1998 – 2001. Before that, she held the positions of Chief of Staff and Director of Public Affairs in the Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration from 1993-1998.
Ms. Powers has extensive nonprofit and public sector experience in workforce development, community organizing, public policy advocacy, and disability employment advocacy. She also held local and State government positions, primarily in workforce development policy and programs in New Hampshire early in her career, and was on the professional staff of the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire before accepting her appointment in the Clinton Administration in 1993. In addition, she began her career working with economically disadvantaged youth as a VISTA volunteer in central New Hampshire communities working for community action programs and federal job training programs for many years.
Educated in Erie by the Sisters of St. Joseph, Ms. Powers is a 1967 graduate of Villa Maria Academy and attended Our Lady of Peace grade school. She is a 1971 graduate of Seton Hill College in Greensburg, PA (now Seton Hill University), founded by the Sisters of Charity and named in honor of Elizabeth Bayley Seton, founder of the Sisters of Charity and the first American-born saint. She earned a BA, majoring in Sociology and Classical Studies. Ms. Powers was honored to receive the University’s Distinguished Alumnae Leadership Award in 2001.
She has resided in Fairfax County/ Alexandria, Virginia, for 30 years and loves the dynamism of the nation’s capital. She is an avid gardener and has never lost her love of the water and beach life (although she leans to the ocean now), having grown up a mile from Presque Isle’s beaches “back in the day.” She plans to travel a lot more in retirement — to beaches worldwide.
Lisa Campagne Winschel
Lisa grew up in Erie, attends St. George Church, and is a Villa Maria Academy Class of 1984 member. For 21 years, Lisa was the operations manager at her father’s company, Career Concepts Staffing Services. However, she felt her calling was to care for others. In 2012 Lisa received her degree from Mercyhurst University to become a Licensed Practical Nurse. She became a Registered Nurse in 2015, again with a degree from Mercyhurst University. An extensive career in nursing at local hospitals followed. Lisa worked with the Sisters of St. Joseph in Mary Crest as Nursing Coordinator for two years before leaving to care for her parents and family.
Lisa’s faith is deeply rooted, especially in caring for others. She has a long relationship with the Sisters and lives by their mission. In 2019 Lisa’s brother, Paul, died unexpectedly from Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy. Paul dealt with seizures throughout his life, and his family was always at his side. Lisa’s mission and ministry is to strongly advocate for epilepsy education, research, and support for people and families living with epilepsy.
Lisa and her husband, Tom, have two children, Anthony and Carla, son-in-law Nick Vicentini, and 7-month-old granddaughter Carina. Completing the family is a large lovable dog, Charlie, and his close cat companion, Cheddar.
