The ERAC Distinguished Service Award

At the April 30 Faculty/Staff Appreciation Dinner, ERAC announced the winner of the 2013 ERAC Distinguished Service Award: Lee Graham from Biological Sciences. 

Lee’s supporters included many faculty and staff from the Biological Sciences department.  According to his nominators, “Lee is always striving to improve the overall function of the core labs of the department. From making sure equipment is fully operational, to being a resource for faculty research labs, to providing support to the undergraduate teaching labs, his efforts assist in producing the best research data available.” Congratulations, Lee!


Iron Pigs Tickets Deadline Nearing

In looking forward into the later spring, as has become tradition, ERAC is sponsoring the attendance at an Iron Pigs baseball game.  We invite all members of the Lehigh family to join us on Saturday, June 15th at 6:35 p.m. (the day before Father's Day).  Tickets are $10 and make excellent holiday and birthday gifts!  To purchase your ticket, please use the form on the ERAC website by May 10.

For those of you who will be attending, have a wonderful time at commencement. All the best for a happy and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend!
