Moravian’s vice president for enrollment receives William H. Harris Award of Excellence
(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Bernard J. Story, vice president for enrollment at Moravian College has been named the recipient of the College Board’s William U. Harris Award of Excellence. Named for William U. Harris who served as the executive director of the Middle States Regional Office (1990-2001), this award is given annually to an individual who possesses the high qualities of leadership and service to young people that Harris himself exhibited. The recipient of this award has had a distinguished career in education and demonstrates a genuine commitment to improving humanity.
Story serves as chair of the Middle States Regional Council. He is a member of the National Association of College Admission Counselors, the Pennsylvania Association of Secondary and College Admission Counselors, and the College Entrance Examination Board. Story was also elected to membership in the Moravian College circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership society.
A 1980 graduate of Moravian College, Story began working in the admission department following his graduation. In 1988, he was promoted to director of admission and during 1994, he was named dean of Admission and Financial Aid. Story was named vice president for enrollment in 1999.
“I was humbled to learn that I was selected for this prestigious award,” said Story. “I know Mr. Harris very well; I consider him a close friend and mentor. To receive this award named in his honor and given by my colleagues within the region is overwhelming. I am particularly thankful to Moravian College for encouraging me to become active in the College Board.”
Story will receive his award at an awards luncheon on Thursday, February 19, 2004 at the Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza Hotel in Philadelphia.
