Bardi receives award for industry contributions

Dr. James Bardi, program coordinator for the Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management degree and assistant professor of Hospitality Management, was selected by the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association (PRA) as the recipient of the PRA Wilmer S. Lapp Keystone Award. This award recognizes significant and noteworthy contributions to the industry and community on behalf of the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association at the chapter and statewide levels.

"What makes this award so special is that I was nominated by a former student of mine, Steve Stetzler, who is now a restaurateur, president of our local PRA chapter, and very active at the state PRA level," comments Bardi.

Bardi will be honored during the seventy-first PRA Annual Meeting & Awards Gala held at the Hilton Harrisburg on Sunday, November 1, 2009.

The dinner is open to the public and the cost is $75 per person. It will feature a Spanish theme, with various food bars during the cocktail hour and a plated meal for dinner. If you are interested in attending, please contact Heidi Howard, event plannner for the PRA, at 800-345-5353 or via e-mail at heidi@parestaurant.org.
