Penn State Wilkes-Barre Student Honored With Evan Pugh Senior Award

Dr. Charles Davis, Penn State Wilkes-Barre Chancellor, and the Pennsylvania State University are pleased to announce local Evan Pugh Senior Award honoree and Penn State Wilkes-Barre student, Megan Millo.

The Evan Pugh scholars are those juniors and seniors who are in the upper 0.5 percent of their respective classes at the end of the fall semester of the academic year the award is given. Candidates are eligible if they have been full-time undergraduate students for at least four semesters prior to selection. The seniors this year have cumulative grade-point averages of 3.98 and above.

Millo, a Penn State Wilkes-Barre senior, will be graduating in May with a Bachelor's in Business.

"We are exceptionally proud of Megan's accomplishments - she is an outstanding student who has made wonderful contributions to our campus, in academics, her clubs service, and her work in the greater Wilkes-Barre community," explains Dr. Davis. "Megan truly exemplifies the spirit of Penn State Wilkes-Barre in the NEPA community."

Millo was also the 2012 recipient of the Eric A. and Josephine S. Walker Award. The Walker Award recognizes undergraduate students enrolled at the Commonwealth locations whose outstanding qualities of character, scholarship, leadership, and citizenship have been directed into programs and services that have positively influenced fellow students and have contributed to the prestige and well-being of their campus and, hence, to the reputation of the University as a whole.

Penn State University is committed to equal opportunity and diversity in both its employees and students.
