     Briana L. Day, a 2008 University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown business/marketing cum laude graduate and daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Day of Mars, Pa., has been honored by the Wall Street Journal with its Student Achievement Award.

     The Wall Street Journal Student Achievement Award was established by the Journal to provide national recognition to top graduating seniors in business at colleges and universities that are participating in its Journal-in-Education program.  At UPJ, students are nominated for the award based on the exceptional quality of their social issues research portfolio, a project that requires extensive research into contemporary issues in business.

     Founded in 1927, UPJ is the first and largest regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh.  A vital knowledge center and a foremost contributor to the area’s educational, social, cultural, and economic environment, UPJ offers a high quality educational experience that is purposefully designed to prepare students for the real world of the 21st century.
