Allentown, PA (March 5, 2007) - Adrienne Angeletti Snelling '52 and Dr. Charles D. Snelling will be honored as the recipients of the 2007 Cedar Crest College Associates' Award. The Snellings will receive the award at the Associates' Award Luncheon, tomorrow, March 6th at 11:45 a.m. in the Dining Room of the Tompkins College Center, Cedar Crest College. Adrienne, an alumna and local supporter of the arts, and Charles, a Life Trustee of the College, will be honored for their substantial contributions to Cedar Crest College and the community.
Founded in 1964, the Associates of Cedar Crest College are business, professional and civic leaders from the greater Lehigh Valley area who have demonstrated a continuing interest toward the pursuit of excellence in the liberal arts education of women. The Associates joined the College in an effort to develop close ties with business and community leaders and to directly participate in the development of higher education. In 1981, they began awarding student scholarships in order to play a more substantial role in educating future leaders. The Associates also assist the Board of Trustees and the President in achieving a broader community understanding of the philosophy and educational program of the College. They are encouraged to participate in the life of the College community so they can benefit from its cultural experience and be better equipped to share the values, talents and resources of Cedar Crest with the community.
