PSC students, student organizations, faculty, staff and administrators submitted written nominations for each award, which were then voted on by members of the Student Senate.

Fogle, a computer management information systems major, is the son of William and Marilyn Wun-Fogle. Fogle is a tutor for Student Success Services and a Harding Stipend worker in the Center for Achievement and Transition Services on campus. His nomination letter for the Scroll of Service Award noted that “he never gets frustrated with a student who just does not get it. He tries harder to get the student to understand the answer.”
The Barb Lewellen Award honors an outstanding faculty, staff member or administrator who has distinguished him/herself through the betterment of students and student life at PSC. All part or full-time faculty, staff and administrators are eligible for the honor.
Groff said, “I am honored and humbled to receive the Barb Lewellen Award. People know how happy I am to have a job that I love and my passion is fueled by the students at Peru State College. They inspire and motivate me.”
Groff’s nomination letter noted that she is devoted to all PSC students and does everything she can to provide opportunities for them to succeed. This is the second time Groff, a 1975 PSC graduate, has received this award. She began working at the college in 1976 in the Athletic Department, prior to holding positions in the Office of Financial Aid, Student Programs and eventually Student Success Services.
Fogle and Groff were each presented with individual trophies and will have their names engraved on a plaque located in the entrance of the Student Center.
Dr. Bill Clemente and Ted Harshbarger, co-advisors for Student Senate, were also recognized for their work.
