On April 10, the university honored four alumni for their professional and community activities with the 2015 Meritorious Achievement Award.
“This year’s Meritorious Award recipients are great examples of the ways that Pittsburg State University’s more than 65,000 alumni distinguish themselves in their places of work and in their communities every day,” said Jon Bartlow, director of alumni and constituent relations.
The PSU Meritorious Achievement Award recipients for 2015 are, Kirby R. Brown, deputy to the commanding general at the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center in Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; Edith Harvey, former director of Improvement Programs for the U.S. Department of Education; Phil Laurie, retired teacher and businessman and long-time collegiate football official; and Miles Schnaer, owner of Crown Automotive, a Toyota, Scion and Volkswagen dealership in Lawrence, Kan.
