DUNMORE, Pa. — Allison Burns, Penn State Worthington Scranton registrar, has been named the July Employee of the Month by Chancellor Marwan Wafa.
In nominating Burns for the honor, Worthington Scranton Chief Academic Officer H.

"Allison’s role as the campus registrar requires attention to the implementation of academic policy, and she has ensured continued quality in meeting her area’s expectations, all while handling the implementation of several new information systems. Her interaction with the larger campus community is exceptional, and this outreach is possible only through attentiveness to exceptional performance in meeting the registrar’s operational responsibilities and strategic goals."
The Employee of the Month recognition was created by Wafa as a way of distinguishing campus staff who "go above and beyond the call of duty" in serving Penn State Worthington Scranton.
