Article Body

     Alicia Foughty, a 2010 University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown business/marketing  graduate and daughter of William Foughty of Murrysville, 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 Pitt-Johnstown, 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, Pitt-Johnstown is located in the Laurel Highlands of Western Pennsylvania and is the first and largest regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh.  The University offers a high-quality educational experience in a supportive living-learning environment designed to prepare students for the real world of the 21st century.  Pitt-Johnstown is recognized by U.S.News & World Report as a “Best Baccalaureate College” (2010), by the Princeton Review as a “Best Northeastern College” (2010), and by G.I. Jobs as a “Military Friendly School.”  Additionally, Pitt-Johnstown has been named to the 2009 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
