Doherty awarded for service to students

LoRita Doherty is this year’s recipient of the Greg and Beth Pierce Award. The announcement was made at the President’s Reception on December 2.

The award, formerly known as the Service to Students Award, honors a Bethany employee who has made exceptional contributions to the lives of students over the years. Established by two Bethany employees in 2001, the honor was founded to identify and reward outstanding efforts in serving students.

Doherty works in accounts payable in the business office at the college. She has served Bethany for more than 20 years. President Ed Leonard said of Doherty, “She supports our students by attending concerts and sporting events – and brings her husband along to make it a family affair. When we say ‘support staff,’ she encapsulates the true message of the title by supporting everything that Bethany is about.”
