2012 Rock Ethics Institute Stand Up Award Recipient
Staci Neal Class of 2012, Letters, Arts, and Sciences, Penn State DuBois
Staci Neal deserves our recognition and respect. She enrolled at Penn State DuBois as a mother of three who had already navigated through several of life's storms. Falling in love with a woman led Staci to understand herself in unfamiliar ways and to resent the social norms that encourage people to hide and tacitly accept that they are denied equal rights. In standing up for herself, and helping others imagine the future towards which she is working, Staci provides an inspiring example of ethical leadership.
