Each year, Penn State honors several members of its faculty and staff for the highest levels of academic excellence, outstanding leadership and meritorious service. In 2013, Helen O'Leary, professor of art, was selected to receive the Faculty Scholar Medal for Oustanding Achievement in the Arts and Humanities. Established in 1980, the award recognizes scholarly or creative excellence represented by a single contribution or a series of contributions around a coherent theme.
