Bardi receives award for industry contributions
Dr. James Bardi, program coordinator for the Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management degree and assistant professor of Hospitality Management, was selected by the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association (PRA) as the recipient of the PRA Wilmer S. Lapp Keystone Award. This award recognizes significant and noteworthy contributions to the industry and community on behalf of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association at the chapter and statewide levels.
"What makes this award so special is that I was nominated by a former student of mine, Steve Stetzler, who is now a restaurateur, president of our local PRA chapter, and very active at the state PRA level," comments Bardi.
Bardi will be honored during the seventy-first PRA Annual Meeting & Awards Gala held at the Hilton Harrisburg on Sunday, November 1, 2009.
