NEIGHBORWORKS NORTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA TO BESTOW HONORS AT 10th ANNUAL GOV. ROBERT P. CASEY MEDAL FOR A LIFETIME OF SERVICE EVENT
In a special 10th-anniversary event, NeighborWorks Northeastern Pennsylvania will honor four community leaders, one posthumously, with The Governor Robert P. Casey Medal for a Lifetime of Service at 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, at the Hilton Scranton and Conference Center in downtown Scranton.
The posthumous medal for lifetime achievement will be awarded to the late Meg Cullen-Brown, who died unexpectedly on May 29.
Ms. Cullen-Brown had dedicated her professional life to service to her community, parish and higher education. She served on the NeighborWorks NEPA Community Relations Committee, volunteered at the St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen and was a member of the St. Paul’s School Middle State Assessment Committee and past chairwoman of the St. Paul’s Block Party and the St. Clare/St. Paul’s School Auction Committee.
At the time of her passing, Meg was the director of the office of the registrar and academic services at the University of Scranton. She previously served as the assistant dean and director of academic advising for the College of Graduate and Continuing Education at the University of Scranton and as the program director for the School of Continuing Education at Marywood University.
Also receiving medals will be Don and Cathy Rhoten, best known as the driving forces behind the revitalized and expanded Scranton School for Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing Children, and James W. Brown, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey’s former chief of staff, best known for the key role he played in two of Governor Casey’s major accomplishments: making the Steamtown Mall project a reality and creating the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which later became a model for the nation.
Msgr. Joseph G. Quinn, a former Casey Medal recipient and NWNEPA board member, and John W. Cosgrove, also a former NWNEPA board member and past president, have been named co-chairs of the event.
