Six to Receive 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award

Congratulations to the following kindhearted alumni, who have won the 2010 Distinguished Alumni Award for their selfless contributions to Penn State:

Joan Amble(1975) Executive Vice President and Corporate Comptroller for American Express.
Gen. C. Robert Kehler (1974) Commander, Air Force Space Command
Daniel S. Mead (undergrad: 1975, grad: 1977) Chief Operating Officer for Verizon Wireless
Karen B. Peetz (1977) Chief Executive Officer of Financial Markets and Treasury Services at The Bank of New York Mellon
Richard L. Trumka (1971) President of the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO)
Dr. Johannes D. Veldhuis (1974) Professor of Medicine at Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education

This award is issued annually by the Penn State Board of Trustees, and it serves as the “University’s highest award for an individual.”

Some of these fine individuals may be partially responsible for the highest single month of donations on record in December 2009 (over $58 million).

The awards both shed light on our faithful supporters and encourage said donors to maybe, perhaps, possibly cough up a few more bucks in the future… please? It’s going to a good cause… us!
