Gaudeamus

The Dubious Distinction Award goes to Rosemarie Reinhard, secretary for the education department, who was selected by ABC-TV’s The View as winner of its Ultimate Clean-Up Contest. The April 8 issue of the Morning Call featured before and after photos of Rose’s home in Hoken-daqua, which she shares with husband Jeff, 4-year-old Christina, and 7-month-old twins Alexandra and Gabrielle.

Michelle Schmidt, assistant professor of psychology, delivered a paper at the Conference on Human Development, April 5-7 in Charlotte, N.C.

Carl Salter, associate professor of chemistry and director of the SOAR program, has been elected to a three-year term as a councilor in the chemistry division of the Council on Undergraduate Research, which promotes collaborative student/faculty research projects and lobbies agencies such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the U.S. Departments of Energy and Education for funding.

Art Lyons, professor of psychology, has accepted a one-year appointment as interim editor of The Humanistic Psychologist, published by the American Psychological Association. His first issue of the journal is a special triple volume on “The Art of Psychotherapy” (Spring/Summer/Fall 2001).

Tierney Lyons (not related to Art) and Dorothy Glew, reference/public service librarians, attended the Computers in Libraries Conference, March 12-15 in Washington, D.C. They attended sessions on e-learning and literacy, search engine updates, and cyberguides. (Would those be like the one played by Orlando Jones in The Time Machine?)

Hail and Farewell

New to the department of reproductive sociology is Samuel Purdue McClellan, born April 11 to assistant professor Lucy McCammon and John McClellan. He arrived one day after his due date—not bad for a first baby. His mother says he seems to be “a good, mellow baby.”

Jen Drey, assistant director of financial aid, has left Moravian to join the Markward Group, Allentown. “She has been a valuable part of the enrollment team for more than 8 years, and we will miss her,” said Stephen Cassel, director of financial aid. Her last day was April 19.
