Pittsburg State University’s Meritorious Achievement Award recipients for 2013 couldn’t be a more diverse group.
One is a Las Vegas performer who has been a favorite pianist of presidents from Carter to Obama. Another is a retired executive who was responsible for tens of billions of dollars of business for one of the nation’s largest insurance companies. The third is a woman who began her career as a speech and English teacher and today is the warden of a federal detention center housing everything from persons facing minor federal charges to accused terrorists awaiting trial.
PSU honored Catherine Stareck Linaweaver, David Osborne and Gary Grant with its Meritorious Achievement Award on Friday, April 19.
“This year’s Meritorious Achievement Award recipients are a fascinating group of people,” said Johnna Schremmer, director of alumni and constituent relations. “The diversity and level of accomplishment among PSU’s 55,000 alumni continues to amaze us and this year’s group of honorees is a good example of that.”
