I am Mountain Cat Proud to recognize two members of our staff, Sherri Rae and Pat Pecora, for outstanding service.
Ms. Rae, director of Student Life and the RealWorld Action Program, received the 2013 President’s Staff Award for Excellence in Service to the Community. A member of the Pitt-Johnstown staff for 12 years, Ms. Rae is someone who is genuinely concerned about the welfare of others. Not only a true cheerleader for Pitt-Johnstown, she is a champion of the community with an unwavering dedication to its success.
Her participation in organizations such as Special Olympics, Goodwill Good Guides Mentoring Program, Outstanding Young Woman Scholarship Program, and the Cinderella Project, to name a few, have impacted this community in a positive and far-reaching way.
Mr. Pecora, director of Athletics, received the 2013 President’s Staff Award for Excellence in Service to Pitt-Johnstown. A member of the Pitt-Johnstown staff for 37 years, Coach Pecora is the embodiment of the spirit of the Mountain Cat.
He is a true ambassador for the University, and leads the way when it comes to promoting pride and community on campus. His leadership and ever-positive attitude about “all things Pitt-Johnstown,” not to mention his unparalleled success as a coach, makes Mr. Pecora deserving of this award.
We are, indeed, fortunate to have dedicated individuals like Ms. Rae and Mr. Pecora as members of our campus community. Please join me in congratulating them on their well-deserved honors.
