Noteworthy: Named a Page Legacy Educator by the Arthur W. Page Center at Penn State University, dedicated to advancing ethics in public communication.

Age: 47

Residence: Upper St. Clair

Family: Husband Andrew Bloss, three children.

Occupation: Assistant professor of journalism and media arts in Duquesne University's McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts. She has been named an expert speaker by Enrichment Voyages and will present lectures on destinations such as Monaco, Italy and France to cruise passengers this summer as part of a shipboard enrichment program.

Education: Bachelor of Arts, independent study in political communication from University of Massachusetts at Amherst; Master of Arts in international relations from Lancaster University in England; doctorate in mass communication from University of Florida.

Background: Auger was awarded $2,500 from the Page Center to develop a teaching module and instructor's guide on organizational transparency.
