Campus Champion

For years, Lori Porter has organized more than the School of Professional Studies’ dean’s office, where she is a Secretary II. The champion volunteer shares her skills with the EAP Committee, Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, Administrative Professional Support Committee and Student Conduct Office. With her son and daughter in college at Penn State, she can focus on volunteer activities here on campus. As the College’s SEFA 2012 Campaign co-chair, she helped run a successful fundraiser that raised more money from fewer donors and positively impacted the local community during this tough economic time. Now her attentions turn to the EAP Committee’s holiday fundraisers.
