Greensburg Salem to honor 2 distinguished alumni

Jacob Tierney

The Greensburg Salem Education Foundation will honor a medical researcher and a hospital executive as the district’s latest distinguished alumni.

Dr. Susan Manzi and Albert Novak Jr. both graduated from Greensburg Salem High School in 1977.

Manzi is chair of the Medicine Institute at Allegheny Health Network, supervising 400 doctors.

She founded the Lupus Center of Excellence to care for Lupus patients and is nationally recognized as a leading researcher on autoimmune diseases, according to the foundation.

Novak is the vice president and chief development officer for Excela Health, leading the organization’s fundraising efforts.

He previously worked as vice chancellor for institutional advancement for the University of Pittsburgh. He also has worked in administrative positions at Carnegie Mellon University and Saint Vincent College.

They will be recognized at the foundation’s annual Distinguished Alumni Dinner on April 5 at Ferrante’s Lakeview Restaurant in Hempfield.

The education foundation established the Distinguished Alumni Award in 2014. Every year, the award is given to one or more graduates from Greensburg Salem High School “for their dedication to public service and their community, and most importantly, for being a role model for youth,” according to the foundation.

Former Greensburg fire Chief the late J. Edward Hutchinson, class of 1939, received the inaugural award.

Novak and Manzi will bring the total number of recipients to 11.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
