STOCK BROKER TO SPEAK AT GCC COMMENCEMENT

Laura Pedersen, the youngest person to hold a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, will be the speaker May 21 at Genesee Community College's 27th annual commencement exercises.

She began her career at age 18 with an entry-level position on the American Stock Exchange's trading floor. Within a year, she was an options trader and a year later she became the youngest person in the history of the stock market to get an exchange seat.

Ms. Pedersen left the exchange in 1989 and has since written two books, appeared on numerous talk-shows and worked as an independent financial consultant.
