Allegheny College Senior Honored With Award From the Central PA Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration

April 19, 2016 – Allegheny College senior Abby Lombard has received the Outstanding Student Award from the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration.

The yearly award is given to one undergraduate student who displays excellence and promise in public administration.

Although she is a native of Syracuse, New York, Lombard was eligible for the award because she spent 13 weeks completing a Pennsylvania House Legislative Fellowship in Harrisburg. This highly competitive fellowship program places students in leadership offices, such as offices of committee chairmen, in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Lombard was placed with two standing committees: the House Majority Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee and the House Majority Transportation Committee.

Lombard, a history and political science double major and philosophy minor, was nominated for the award during her time in Harrisburg. She will accept it May 2 during a celebration for national Public Service Recognition Week at the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg.

During her time at Allegheny, Lombard has served as a Student Fellow for the college’s Center for Political Participation and as a student representative on the History and Heritage Committee. In September 2014 she traveled to Harvard University to represent Allegheny at the Bipartisan National Conference, and in spring 2015 she spent the semester studying in Australia. She is a member of Alpha Phi Omega, the college’s service fraternity; executive board president of the Residence Hall Association; and student advisory board member for the Department of History.

In summer 2014 Lombard completed an internship at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, New York. In 2015 she interned with Congressman John Katko in Syracuse. She also has worked in the Office of the Onondaga County Executive in Syracuse.

Following graduation, Lombard has accepted a position with Deloitte Consulting in Cleveland and eventually plans to attend graduate school and run for public office.

Students Present Papers at Russian Symposium and Phi Alpha Theta PA­-West Regional Conference

Robert (Trey) Durst III ’16 and Quintin Peacock ’17 presented papers in early March at the Russian Symposium and Phi Alpha Theta PA­-West Regional Conference, both held at Mercyhurst University. Trey discussed his work “Sergei Eisenstein: Individual Revolution versus Paternal Authority,” which explored the Soviet filmmaker’s views on authority to suggest that his memoir and cinematic portrayal of the Bolshevik Revolution expressed a vision of personal microcosmic revolutions. Quintin’s paper “Photography and Our Civil War Memory” explored the multiple meanings of photography and argued that historians must dissociate themselves from their current perceptions and focus on the mindset of the typical citizen during the Civil War period, in order to gain full insight into the past.
