LOCK HAVEN — The Lock Haven University has announced the creation of the LHU Business Hall of Fame to honor LHU alumni who have distinguished themselves in business and in service to the university and their community.

“The LHU Business Hall of Fame was developed by the Business and Accounting Programs Advisory Council to honor those LHU alumni who not only excel in business, but also admirably serve LHU and their community,” said Dr. Cori Myers, department chair and lead faculty member in creating the Hall of Fame

The 2012 inductees are:

* John R. Cattoni, LHU Class of 1983, co-owner of Target Systems, an information technology services firm specializing in Department of Defense contracts

* Virginia A. Roth, LHU Class of 1981, president of The Partnership of Packer, Oesterling & Smith, a public relations firm located in Harrisburg.

Induction into the LHU Business Hall of Fame recognizes these outstanding alumni for their professional success, distinguished service and upstanding character.

Amanda Keiffer, Advisory Council member and Hall of Fame Committee member, praised the inaugural class of inductees.

“The inductees to the LHU Business Hall of Fame are honorable individuals who have used their education to make tremendous contributions to their profession, as well as to their committees,” she said. “What better way to inspire our students and show them what their LHU education can do!”

Keiffer is a 2009 graduate of the LHU accounting program and is employed by the Hall of Fame event sponsor, SF&Company, a leading certified public accounting and business advisory firm.

The inaugural Business Hall of Fame celebration begins on March 22 with a panel discussion with the Hall of Fame inductees. The discussion will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Health Professions Building, Room 118. Each Hall of Fame inductee briefly will introduce him/herself, and then spend the remaining time addressing audience questions about professional success and career development.

The LHU Business Hall of Fame Luncheon and Ceremony takes place from noon to 2 p.m. March 23 in the Durrwachter Alumni Conference Center. Tickets for the luncheon cost $20 and may be purchased online at the Business Hall of Fame website. The registration deadline for the 2012 induction luncheon and ceremony is March 9.

Following the luncheon will be the unveiling of the Business Hall of Fame Wall in Akeley Hall, second floor common area. The memorial consists of a 2×5-foot sign and a plaque for each participant that describes why they received the award
