    Aubrey Fick, of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., the first valedictorian in the College’s history, presented the valedictory address to the class of 2019. Fick earned dual associate degrees from Lackawanna in Criminal Justice and Human Services in 2017 and earned her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. She carries a 4.0 grade point average.

    On campus, Fick was president of the Human Services Club, vice president of the Criminal Justice Club and Yearbook Community Leader. She is a past member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and a 2017 Social Sciences Division Award winner. Fick also was a campus math tutor and the leader of the College’s Exam Cram.

    Off campus, she is employed at H&R Block as an office manager in training and tax preparer. Fick plans to attend law school after graduation.

    Creative director, fashion illustrator and best-selling author, Dallas Shaw, presented the keynote address and was awarded an honorary doctorate degree. Shaw began her journey ten years ago as a Disney artist-in-training, and now serves as creative director, project designer and ambassador to some of the most powerful fashion houses nationwide. Since her start, Shaw has taken on work for many notable clients including Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Kate Spade, Dolce and Gabbana, Harper’s Bazaar and more.

    Lackawanna College Board of Trustees President John P. Wiercinski was awarded the Silver Seeley Distinguished Service Medal. The medal is given to an individual who has performed outstanding service to the Lackawanna College community and is regarded as one of the College’s highest honors. Wiercinski was recognized for his service since 2008 through the Board of Trustees as a committee chair, vice chair and now as chair of the board of trustees.
