Michele Papakie, associate professor in Indiana University of Pennsylvania's journalism department, helped present a "My Boss is a Hero" award Thursday to Dr. Yaw Asamoah, dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, second from left, and Randy Jesick, chairman of the journalism department, second from right.

Also on hand to present the award was Dale E. Hill, a representative from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. Papakie -- a 1993 alumna of IUP -- nominated her bosses for the award through the U.S. Department of Defense for their support of her deployment to Afghanistan for six months last year as a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserves.
