MNE staff member recognized for exceptional service

05/13/2015

Juls Kralik, administrative coordinator in the mechanical and nuclear engineering department, received the 2015 University Park Outstanding Office Professional Award (OOPA).

Penn State Educational Office Professionals (PSEOP) recognized Kralik for providing exceptional meritorious service on behalf of Penn State in the areas of professionalism, initiative, leadership, self-improvement, and volunteerism.

“With over 50 faculty, 25 staff members, 1000 undergraduates, and 280 graduate students, it is easily conceivable that the lead staff member in the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering could become overwhelmed. This is not the case with Juls Kralik, who thrives on being challenged by working in such a large organization,” said Karen Thole, department head, mechanical and nuclear engineering.

“Over the last nine years Juls has had an enormously beneficial impact on the department and on the faculty and students who interacted with her,” said Arthur Motta, professor and chair of nuclear engineering.

Kralik was honored at the PSEOP spring reception and presented with a monetary award, framed certificate, nameplate on a perpetual plaque, and one-year membership to PSEOP.

PSEOP is an organization dedicated to increasing the level of professionalism of Penn State’s office personnel and staff through continuing development.
