Nominations Underway for Student, Faculty and Staff Awards
Throughout the year, Penn State Worthington Scranton’s faculty and staff work diligently to ensure the success of our campus and our students.
As a way of recognizing their efforts, Penn State Worthington Scranton has established the Campus Awards, which have been a long-standing resource for recognizing the efforts of hardworking faculty and staff.
Worthington Scranton continues to be remarkably successful in compelling benefactors to support our faculty and staff through select Campus Awards for the work they do both on our campus and in our community.
Nominations for the Campus Awards are now underway, and continue through April 18, 2008. All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to learn more about these awards and submit their nominations by going to www.sn.psu.edu/FacultyStaff/awards.htm
Awards nomination forms are available online. The winners of these awards will be presented at this year's Honors Convocation in May.
In addition to faculty and staff awards, nominations are also now underway for several student awards/scholarships.
