vgWe were happy to learn today that the English department at Penn State has named Vicki Glembocki ’93, ’02g its Outstanding Young Alumna for 2010. She’ll be back to campus in April to be presented with the award.

Vicki was senior editor at The Penn Stater from 1997–2001; she left here to become articles editor at Philadelphia Magazine. Nowadays she’s a contributing editor for that magazine and a full-time freelance writer, and along the way she also wrote a book: The Second Nine Months: One Woman Tells the Real Truth About Becoming a Mom. Finally.

We’re very happy that she continues to write for us as well: Most recently she wrote “Who Killed Betsy Aardsma?” for our Sept-Oct 2009 issue; a profile of physicist Ronald Mallett ’69, ’70g, ’73g called “One Moment in Time” for our July-Aug 2009 issue; a profile of winery owner Doug Moorhead ’56 called “A Wine’s Time” for Jan-Feb 2009; and a story about the film No. 4 Street of Our Lady for our Nov-Dec 2008 issue.

Just last week she was out in Los Angeles on assignment for us, interviewing Ty Burrell ’97g, star of the ABC-TV hit series Modern Family. Look for her story on him to appear in our Jan-Feb 2010 issue.

Tina Hay, editor
