Meet Your Legislators
The Honors Program at Penn State Lehigh Valley invites the public to an informational forum featuring local Pennsylvania legislators from 9:00-11:00 a.m. on February 27, 2009 in the Atrium at the Lehigh Valley campus.
Guests of “Meet Your Legislators” will include Representative Karen Beyer, Senator Pat Browne, and Representative Richard Grucela, who will each give a short presentation. Other guest legislators may be added to the program. Afterward, students from the Honors Program will lead a question and answer period.
“As part of the Honor’s Program mission, we strive to bring to campus educational forums that impact students’ lives. We plan to have the forums twice per year,” says Dr. Nichola Gutgold, honors program coordinator and associate professor of communication arts and sciences at Penn State Lehigh Valley. “Some of our gifted students may go on to careers in public service and learning of the careers of public officials, as well as how their work impacts Penn State, is of great benefit to students. The forums also give students an opportunity to improve their communication skills.”
This event is free and open to the public. Penn State Lehigh Valley campus is located at 8380 Mohr Lane, Fogelsville, PA, 18051. For more information, please contact the University Relations Office at (610) 285-5067.
