LOCK HAVEN — Two LHU alumni who have distinguished themselves in business and in service to the university and their community will be honored at the annual Business Hall of Fame luncheon and ceremony from noon to 2 p.m. on Friday, March 23 in the Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center, Poorman Ballroom, on the campus of LHU.

The 2018 inductees are Susan K. Myers, ’76, and Donn “The Swami” Wagner, ’66.

“The LHU Business Hall of Fame was developed by the business and accounting programs advisory board as a way to honor our alumni who significantly impact business and industry through their leadership, managerial success, or entrepreneurial spirit as well as recognize their distinguished service to the communities in which they reside,” said Cori Myers, Ph.D., department chair and Business Hall of Fame committee member.

The Business Hall of Fame celebration will begin on Thursday, March 22 with a panel discussion with the Hall of Fame inductees from 12:30-2 p.m. in Rogers Gymnasium. Each inductee will address questions about their view on current business issues, professional success, and career development. Following the luncheon and ceremony on March 23, there will be an unveiling of Hall of Fame awards from 2:30-3 p.m. in Akeley Hall, second floor common area.
