elcome to the first digital edition of Wilkes magazine, which we are very proud to share with our alumni and friends. The past several months have been rich with activities and experiences, and felt more like the vibrant, pre-COVID campus that we all remember. Throughout our history, Wilkes has been dedicated to creating life-changing opportunities for our students. That passion for student success has been captured in our new branding focused on At Wilkes, You Will.

President Joseph R. Biden met with Angela Cant and President Greg Cant during his visit to Wilkes University.

The fall semester began in historic fashion as we welcomed the 46th President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, Jr. to campus. President Biden spoke to a crowd of more than 700 people in the Arnaud C. Marts Center about his Safer America Plan and spent time after his remarks taking photos with attendees. It has been 50 years since a sitting President has visited the Wilkes campus, and I could not be more proud of the dedication and hard work of my campus colleagues devoted to making the event a success. You will read more about this very special day in the life of our University here.

In October we completed the multi-million dollar renovation to the River Street Corridor of Stark Learning Center. Dedicated at Homecoming, the Griggs Pharmacy Center greatly enhances collaboration and increases capabilities for the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy.

The Bonner Leader Program Begins Second Year and Welcomes New Students

The Bonner Leader program is going strong into its second year, welcoming seven new members, for a total of 17 students.

In the Bonner Leader program, students dedicate six to eight hours to service each week and participate in leadership training throughout their four years at Wilkes. The goal for each student is to focus on one volunteer site, build a relationship with the program and its staff and to bring awareness of the service organization back to the Wilkes community.

Wilkes Receives $2.5 Million Grant for Dorothy Dickson Darte Center

In late October, Governor Tom Wolf announced that Wilkes University was the recipient of $2.5 million in funding to enhance the accessibility of the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center for the Performing Arts, its premier 478-seat theater. This Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant is the second largest in Wilkes history.

The grant will be used to complete the first phase of what is envisioned as a multi-phase project to enhance the Dorothy Dickson Darte Center. These funds will specifically support the accessibility of the theater through newly installed ramps, an enhanced entrance, ADA seating and parking as well as improved lobby space and a new interior elevator.

Wilkes University President Greg Cant said that the grant will allow for more members of the greater Wilkes-Barre community to enjoy extraordinary programs, lectures and performances offered on the Wilkes campus.

New, Bright Spaces on Campus

When students arrived on campus, there were significant campus improvements waiting for them. Here are two of the major enhancement projects completed during the summer:

  • The largest campus project was the extensive work done in Stark Learning Center for the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy and the engineering program. Highlights include the newly-dedicated Griggs Pharmacy Center (read the full story), the new robotics lab and new enclosed breezeways with bright, modern areas for teaching and learning.
  • Henry’s Dining Hall on the third floor of the Henry Student Center got a significant makeover, with a fresh new look, new equipment, food stations and even a blue and gold pizza oven.

President Greg Cant honored six members of the Wilkes University faculty and staff with the President’s Awards for Excellence during the opening of school Convocation ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 24, 2022. The awards represent the University’s five core values: innovation, scholarship, diversity, mentorship and community.

The President’s Award for Excellence in Innovation was presented to Donald Mencer, professor of chemistry, and Marie Roke-Thomas, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, who, together, made possible new academic offerings in cannabis studies. The pair secured $350,000 in state funding to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and to provide critical services for the broader community.

Remembering Agnes:
50 Years Later

Many members of the Wilkes community still remember vividly that day in June of 1972 when Hurricane Agnes, the worst natural disaster in Pennsylvania’s history, devastated the Wyoming Valley. Now everyone will be able to hear the stories—from those who experienced it—with the “Remembering Agnes: 50 Years Later,” a walking tour and multimedia retrospective online.

The walking tour exhibit was designed to provide visitors with a brief history of some of Wilkes University’s historic buildings that were most affected by Hurricane Agnes. The tour consisted of 12 designated campus stops, showing how the campus community came together to recover and rebuild our Wilkes after Agnes.

New Branding Initiative Launched at Wilkes

When students returned to campus this fall, they were met with a bright, bold and positive vibe. A new branding initiative, launched during the summer, was the culmination of a yearlong study that included focus groups and surveys. Over 2,800 students, faculty and staff participated, and shared what drives them, what they feel is important and how they perceive Wilkes. This data was the basis for Wilkes University’s new messaging: At Wilkes, you will.

“At Wilkes, you will” is the foundation of the Wilkes University story. It encompasses these truths: “Wilkes is the place where people are given a chance. Where those who show incredible resilience are encouraged to take risks, explore new facets of themselves and create the life they want. It’s where all faculty and staff are unified in their dedication to give every student their all. And where academic quality isn’t reserved for the privileged few.”

In the past few months, the new language, vibrant images and graphics displayed on campus, on the website and in publications have been overwhelmingly embraced by the Wilkes community.

New Academic Structure Implemented

The 2022-23 year introduced a new Wilkes University academic structure that presents both collaborative and budgetary benefits. Wilkes has unified the six schools and colleges to create three distinctive academic units to better serve students in an interdisciplinary fashion. The structure benefits students by emphasizing creativity, collaboration and new hands-on learning opportunities across academic programs.

  • The College of Arts and Sciences consists of programs in the performing arts, humanities, behavioral and social sciences, environmental sciences and natural sciences. It also includes chemistry, math, physics and computer science. The College of Arts and Sciences is led by Paul Riggs, who joined Wilkes in 2015.

When Paul Adams ’77, MS ’82 was graduating from high school, he only applied to two colleges: Wilkes College and the community college near his home in Binghamton, N.Y.

The son of a Methodist minister, Adams had learned about Wilkes when his father was assigned to a church in Forty Fort, Pa., during the 1960s. It was the era of the college’s legendary Golden Horde football team and Adams—a self-described “sports nut” during his childhood—became a fan. When the time came for college, Adams, who played high school football, chose Wilkes with thoughts of continuing to play.

“I never really found my intellectual curiosity when I was in high school, so I wasn’t a great student,” Adams recalls. “And as the story was with so many young people, Wilkes took a chance on me and gave me an opportunity.”

A Marriage Made at Wilkes

Paul and Jean Reiter Adams
Paul Adams was homesick during his first year at Wilkes.

“I thought about leaving. ‘Oh, man,’ I thought. ‘Maybe this isn’t for me,’ ” Paul recalls. Paired with a senior electrical engineering student, Simon Davos, for a roommate, Adams made it through his first year.

When he returned the next fall, still wondering if Wilkes was the right place, he visited his roommate’s girlfriend in Catlin Hall. It was there that he met her new roommate, Jean Reiter, a freshman from Emerson, N.J. “And that was it: case closed,” says Paul with a chuckle. There was no more talk of homesickness or of leaving Wilkes.

Jean doesn’t remember every detail of that meeting, but she does remember Paul made a positive impression.

Biden Visits

Wilkes University

“It’s my honor to introduce to you, President Joe Biden.”

And a momentous occasion at Wilkes University began. As the United States Marine Band played “Hail to the Chief” under a massive American flag and to the cheers of more than 700 attendees, Wilkes-Barre Mayor George Brown introduced the 46th President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

At just past 3 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 30, 2022, Wilkes faculty, students and staff packed the Arnaud C. Marts Center to hear President Biden address his Safer America Plan, which aims to further reduce gun violence and crime.

It is the first time in 50 years that a sitting president has visited Wilkes University. In 1972, President Richard Nixon came to Wilkes to announce a $4 million grant in support of the University’s Agnes Flood recovery efforts.

way to somewhere else, not a destination. Unless you’re
Matthew S. Finkenbinder, associate professor of geology at
Wilkes University. Finkenbinder, or Dr. F, or “Fink” as some
of his students call him, shows his students that on this
weathered strip of road, there is a tall rock face that serves
as a fascinating map to the past—and it measures time not in
centuries, or millenia, but millions of years.
It is here that Finkenbinder and his team of seven stratigraphy and sedimentation course students pull over in a minivan full of gear for a four-hour outdoor lab. As cars speed by, Finkenbinder explains the objective of the lab. “Why are we here?” he asks. “To observe and describe an exposure of sedimentary rocks.” The students gather what they’ll need: hard hats, reflective gear, hammers, field books and pencils, traditional metal compasses and measuring tape; surprisingly low-tech gear for scientific research.

In fact, it’s the absence of digital screens and gadgets—and being outdoors—that makes these outings so important to students. “A common attribute of students that are in environmental science and geology is a curiosity about nature and the love of the outdoors,” said Finkenbinder. Multiple field trips throughout the term are an important part of geology coursework.

Meeting Demands of a Budding Industry With Serious Science

Meeting Demands of a Budding Industry With Serious Science typography
By Kelly Clisham MFA ’16
Just before Homecoming weekend, an incident occurred on campus.
According to reports, officials discovered marijuana plants in an academic facility on campus. They took immediate action, collecting the plants, properly disposing of them in an autoclave and starting the project all over again after filing the necessary crop loss report with the Department of Agriculture.
There’s no need to worry about a rise in illicit activity on campus. The plants are all part of Wilkes’ groundbreaking academic programs and hands-on research in cannabis studies. Inspired by the legalization of marijuana in many states, along with a remarkable increase in over-the-counter CBD products that boast health benefits, the programs put much-needed science at the forefront of a national conversation.

“We’re not running some type of clandestine operation,” says Will Terzaghi, professor of biology. The Homecoming incident was part of ensuring that Wilkes University’s two hemp farms, numbered 3057 and 3058, remain in compliance with state and federal law. Wilkes holds a permit to grow hemp, but when the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in the plants hits 0.3%, the plants are considered medical marijuana and must be destroyed.


The Roads Less Traveled

Two Distinguished Alums Follow Different Paths to Success
The growing list of successful Nesbitt School of Pharmacy grads proves that the field of pharmacy is not only rich with opportunities, but many paths to get there as well. Priya Maheshwari Darouian ’03, and Anthony Fanucci ’18, are great examples: Darouian pursued a post-grad fellowship that led to a corporate career, while Fanucci paired his PharmD with a law degree.

Anthony Fanucci ’18 headshot
At first, Darouian didn’t have a plan for after graduation. “That actually helped me because I had an open mindset,” she said. In her last year, however, she did rotations at Novartis Pharmaceuticals in New Jersey, and something just clicked. She witnessed first-hand the impact pharmacists have in the pharmaceutical industry. “I went there for six weeks and I absolutely fell in love with what I saw,” Darouian remembers. After the six weeks, she wanted to learn more, so she applied to Rutgers for their postdoctoral pharmaceutical industry fellowship. “It was a sacrifice at that time because I had been working for so long and now I would be doing a post-doc. But it was worth it because I was investing in myself and, to me, it was more important to be fulfilled in my career,” said Darouian.

Alumni Association Welcomes New Board Members

The Alumni Association Board of Directors welcomed five new directors elected to the board during the February 2022 meeting. They began their terms in June.

The new directors share some thoughts about their Wilkes experience and what they hope to contribute as directors.

Meet the 2022 Alumni Association Scholarship Recipient: Michael Nowak

This year’s alumni association scholarship recipient is Michael Nowak ’24. Nowak is an Honors Program student, an electrical engineering major, the president of the Residence Hall Council, serves as lead ambassador in the Admissions office and is a teaching assistant and tutor in the electrical engineering and physics department. “My favorite thing about Wilkes is the small class sizes and the Honors Program. It’s a great family to be a part of.” He also shared who inspires his success. Nowak’s mom, Arlene Nowak PharmD ’00, attended Wilkes and it inspired him to look more closely at Wilkes in his college search. “My role model is my mom. She has faced a lot of adversity in her life, especially when she went back to school to change her career path to become a pharmacy student at Wilkes University. She has also made a lot of sacrifices for my siblings and I to be involved in a lot of activities, and she has always been our number one supporter every step of the way.”

2020 and 2021

New Griggs Pharmacy Center Dedication

“When you do things, I believe you need a reason to do them,” said Jason Griggs ’90, about his gift to establish the new Griggs Pharmacy Center, a new spacious extension of the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy in the Stark Learning Center. “My reason for pledging to renovate this wonderful space is because our family started in pharmacy,” he said. Both his great-grandfather, Alfred Griggs, and grandfather, Alfred Bowman Griggs, were pharmacists. Before he unveiled the plaque engraved with his great-grandfather’s image, Jason Griggs said he owed his success, and the success of his family, to those two gentlemen.

Setting the Bar

Katharine Marianacci ’17, Dallas, Pa., competed in the prestigious Valentina Koslova International Ballet Competition at the Symphony Space Theater in New York City in June. Marianacci is now dancing professionally with the US International Ballet Company based out of Wilmington, N.C. after undergoing a highly competitive audition process. She will also continue to serve as a dance faculty member at the Degnan Ballet Center & Wilkes University Conservatory as well as perform as a guest artist in the troupe’s productions. In addition to her accomplishments in ballet, she graduated summa cum laude from Wilkes with a BA in psychology and she holds an MEd in counseling psychology from Lehigh University, finishing with a 4.0 GPA. Marianacci has extensive experience as a psychotherapist and career coach and she will continue to work in that field part-time while pursuing professional ballet.
