Debbie Gross, a junior King’s College student and West Pittston resident, has had a paper accepted for presentation at an international conference to be held at Oxford University in England this summer.
Vittoria DeGiosio was recently awarded a $2,500 “Emerging Voices” scholarship presented by the Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) and Ford Motor Company Fund. She is a senior majoring in mass communications and political science at King’s College.
Jessica Wong, a student at King’s College, is one of only two students in the state to be awarded a $5,000 scholarship from the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA).
Wong, who just completed her sophomore year of study, can renew the scholarship for both her junior and senior years by maintaining a minimum 3.0 grade-point-average. Wong is an accounting major and is pursuing a minor in mathematics at King’s.
King’s College has established an annual award for achievement and leadership in the name of Father James Lackenmier, C.S.C., seventh president of the College.
The Reverend James Lackenmier, C.S.C., Award for Achievement and Leadership will be presented yearly in conjunction with the McGowan School of Business Forum. A highlight of Father Lackenmier’s 18-year presidency (1981-1999) was the establishment of the William G. McGowan School of Business at King’s in 1992.
