Sondra and Morey Myers Fellowship Established

Sondra and Morey Myers Fellowship Established
The University of Scranton established The Sondra H’87 and Morey Myers H’12 Distinguished Fellowship in the Humanities and Civic Engagement.

Myers, Ph.D.

This fall, the University established The Sondra and Morey Myers Distinguished Visiting Fellowship in the Humanities and Civic Engagement, housed in the University’s Slattery Center for Humanities. The fellowship honors two highly regarded community leaders from the region, Sondra and Morey Myers, J.D. Through their generous support and tireless work, both have encouraged civic engagement and cultural excellence for the betterment of the University, the city of Scranton and the country.

The fellowship was formally launched Oct. 24 at a lecture by Wayne Winborne, executive director of the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University-Newark. The launch event continued Oct. 25 with a Festival of Ideas, at which distinguished scholars and activists discussed the way in which law, humanities and civic engagement can address the crisis of democracy in the 21st century.

Tributes to the Myerses were presented by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey Jr., Lonnie Bunch III, the 14th secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, and the Rev. William J. Byron, S.J, the 21st president of the University, among others. The fellowship will help to enrich the community and elevate the type of serious thinking and reflection that Sondra and Morey constantly demonstrate, Gov. Wolf said in a video tribute.

Sondra Myers serves as senior fellow for international, civic and cultural projects and director of the Schemel Forum at Scranton. Morey Myers is a practitioner in state and federal court in civil and criminal law.
