Stombaugh named Penn Stater of the Quarter
Jennifer Stombaugh, registrar and advisor at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, has been named Penn Stater of the Quarter, announced Dr. Mary E. Hines, campus executive officer. The Penn Stater of the Quarter is a member of the campus community who has uniquely demonstrated special concern for the campus, has achieved a significant honor or goal that benefits the campus, or demonstrates special dedication to the mission of the campus.
“Jennifer exhibits special concern not only for the students she serves beyond a full time workday, but she also shows that concern for faculty,” said Dr. Hines. “We can count on her for doing whatever it takes to get the job done. She is frequently found staying late after work, making extra inquiries on behalf of students, or reassuring stressed out students that there are ways to work things out. In addition, Jennifer devotes many hours every year to coordinate the Regional History Day competition at the campus.”
Stombaugh is a West Nanticoke resident. She earned her B.A. in History at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and her M.A. in Student Affairs in Higher Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
