Bachman named Penn Stater of the Quarter
William Bachman, instructor in communications arts/sciences, has been named Penn Stater of the Quarter at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, 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.
“Despite his full-time faculty responsibilities during the fall ’04 semester, Bill made significant additional contributions to the campus and community,” said Janet Rosenbaum, assistant director of continuing education. “He voluntarily developed and delivered several projects for continuing education, including: a presentation on marketing on a shoestring for an annual commerce show; a training program in the Northern Tier for people interested in tracing their family heritage; and a highly successful movie and discussion series that highlighted films with ties to Northeastern Pennsylvania.” In addition, Bachman travels to Procter & Gamble every week to teach an undergraduate course to adult students pursuing a Business Leadership Certificate Program.
Bachman earned his B.F.A. and M.A. in Communication Arts from the New York Institute of Technology. He joined the faculty at Penn State Wilkes-Barre in 1982. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, Bachman also owns and operates VideoGuard Communications, an advertising agency and video production facility.
