Gaudeamus

The Moravian College Choir under Paula Ring Zerkle, associate professor of music, performed January 24-25 in the Washington, D.C., area. The 55-member group sang at Mount Olivet Methodist Church, Arlington, Virginia, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and at Glen Lutheran Church, Glen Burnie, Maryland, whose minister is David G. Berg ’66.

Bernie Story ’80, vice president for enrollment, has received the William U. Harris Award of Excellence of the College Board, an intercollegiate agency that sets admissions and accreditation standards across the country. Named for the executive director of the Middle States Regional Office (1990-2001), the award is given annually for leadership and service to young people. Bernie is chair of the Middle States Regional Council and 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. He also is a member of Moravian’s chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership society. He has worked at Moravian since his graduation and was named vice president in 1999.

Kelly Krieble ’86, assistant professor of physics, attended the 128th annual meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers, January 24-28 in Miami Beach. He returned with a special treat for the editor of InCommon: a session report on “The Physics of Cats.” Since Kelly does not own (or even much like) cats, we are very appreciative.

A Death in the Family

Elizabeth Pfohl Campbell, dean of Moravian College for Women (1928-29), died January 10 in Washington, D.C., at the age of 101. She was the daughter of Moravian bishop J. Kenneth Pfohl ’98, ’00 (Seminary), who wrote the lyrics to Moravian’s alma mater, and sister of J. Kenneth Pfohl Jr. ’32. She was later an administrator at Mary Baldwin College; then a longtime member of the Arlington, Virginia, school board, shepherding it through the difficult era of integration. She was one of the founders of WETA, the powerful Washington-area public broadcasting station.
