Schemel Forum Director appointed by President Obama to Commission on Presidential Scholars

The Weinberg Memorial Library would like to congratulate Schemel Forum director Sondra Myers on her appointment by President Obama to the Commission on Presidential Scholars.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, the Commission on Presidential Scholars is a “group of eminent private citizens appointed by the President to select and honor the Presidential Scholars.”  The Scholars are selected from a pool of candidates who “demonstrate exceptional accomplishments in academics, the arts, and an outstanding commitment to public service.”  We can’t think of a better way to describe Sondra and her contributions to the Schemel Forum, the University, the Scranton community, and the global, public good.
