Beachley Distinguished Professor Awards
The Beachley awards were created to support two faculty awards: The Beachley Award for Distinguished Teaching and the Beachley Award for Distinguished Academic Service. The awards were established by the late Donovan R. Beachley, Sr., a 1921 graduate of Juniata and a member of the board of trustees; the late Mrs. Grace Rinehart Beachley; Donovan R. Beachley, Jr., a member of the class of 1947 and a member of the board of trustees; and Mrs. Mary Ellen Beachley, all of Hagerstown, Md. Additional support for the awards is provided by Donovan R. Beachley, Jr., and by David C. Beachley, a 1977 Juniata graduate and current president of the Beachley Furniture Co. of Hagerstown.
Provost Robert Hatala '52 instituted the Bookend Seminar at Juniata in the fall of 1996. Its original purpose was to provide a forum for faculty members to report on their sabbatical research and projects. One lecture was held each semester. The Bookend Seminar continues to be sponsored by the Provost's office and has evolved into a monthly forum with topics ranging far beyond sabbatical projects.
