Campus bids farewell to three esteemed faculty members

After decades of teaching and helping countless students, Marilyn Daniels, James Klein and Gayle Smith retired this spring.

All three have been familiar faces at Penn State Worthington Scranton for the past four decades and all three have been granted professor emeritus status by the University.

Daniels, a professor of communication arts, began teaching at the campus in 1980. Klein, associate professor of physics, joined the faculty in 1975, and Smith, associate professor of English, arrived at the campus in 1977.

The campus celebrated their careers and contributions at a special reception in the Sherbine Lounge, and the trio was wished well by their colleagues, campus staff and administration.

The professor emeritus rank is granted in recognition of meritorious service to the University by professors and associate professors who have at least 10 years of service at the University and have held that title for at least five years prior to retirement.
