As a student and as an alumnus you have had a significant impact on the quality and the character of this institution. Your route to Bucknell was not the traditional one;
After spending one semester at Temple University and three years in the U.S. Army, Pete Pedrick entered Bucknell in the fall of 1956 and was immediately called the "old tuner" by fraternity brothers.
He was selected president of his fraternity and subsequently assumed the role of president of the Inter-fraternity Council. He also served as the Head Chapel Usher. At commencement, he received the Louis W. Robey Prize for the senior who best exemplifies the aims of a Bucknell education.
Following graduation, he accepted a position with the United States Steel Corporation and, in 1963, decided to return to Bucknell where he has served for the past 22 years as a development officer in the division of University Relations. He has been active with alumni relations and capital campaigns. He has worked with five vice presidents and four presidents, and always considers what is best for Bucknell.
In 1968, he was identified as an Outstanding Young Man in America and, in 1977, he received the Bison Club Award for Service. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Evangelical Community Hospital and the Governor's Committee on Charitable Organizations.
A friend and role model, Pete Pedrick is blessed with a gracious and generous personality.
