Lalik was one of six recipients University-wide. This award recognizes a staff member who goes above and beyond their normal routines, who resolves difficult dilemmas, who is exceptionally creative and who is responsive to the needs of others.</p><p>Lalik was nominated by her Penn State Lehigh Valley colleagues: Diane McAloon, alumni relations coordinator; Felicite Gibson, administrative support assistant; and Sharon Neders, administrative support assistant. The nomination noted Lalik’s many accomplishments and collaborative and supportive nature.</p><p>“Ann Lalik has endless energy for her passions, both promoting the arts and promoting the University. As gallery director, she is responsible for bringing a multitude of learners into our campus community on a daily basis… The gallery has been a great success in many ways. Not only has Ann attracted community support through exhibitions, her work has gained financial support for the campus as well,” noted McAloon.</p><p>“She lends her creative energy and expertise to enhance the campus visibility all year long. Ann worked with me to host our first campus meeting for the Forum on Black Affairs (FOBA). She immediately offered to help create a program at the Ronald K De Long Art Gallery to welcome FOBA members from University Park and across the Commonwealth campuses. Ann helps make Higher Education more interesting, creative and fun,” said Gibson.</p><p>Neders said, “Her interest in promoting the arts and Penn State, across all possible avenues, is unmatched. Ann has changed things large and small here as an instructor, innovator, artist and community activist.”</p><p>Of the other five award recipients this year, three were from University Park, one was from Worthington Scranton and one was from World Campus.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-contacts field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Contacts</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"> <article role="article" about="https://lehighvalley.psu.edu/content/dennille-schuler-1" class="node contact node-contact default clearfix"><div class="content"> <div class="field--name-field-contact-display-name"> <h3>Dennille Schuler</h3> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-email field--type-email field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="mailto:djs82@psu.edu">djs82@psu.edu</a></div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Public Relations Specialist<br /> Penn State Lehigh Valley</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-work-phone field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field--label">Work Phone</div> <div class="field--item">610-285-5018</div> </div> </div> </article></div> </div> </div> Tue, 10 May 2016 20:38:12 +0000 admin 13371 at https://lehighvalley.psu.edu
