"Dr. Vicente Anido Jr., Dr. Gopala Krishna, Dr. Bernadette M. Melnyk and Joseph Steranka will join an elite group of fewer than 85 people to receive this prestigious honor.

“'Bernadette, Joe, Vince, and Gopala are true visionaries who exemplify our WVU ideals—entrepreneurial spirit, innovation, and of course hard work. Each has achieved tremendous success in their respective fields and are very deserving of this recognition,' said Stephen L. Douglas, President and CEO, WVU Alumni Association."
