Popular big band singer BobEberly spent much of his career with Jimmy Dorsey's orchestra.
In his early days, Bob, who changed the spelling of his last name because the announcer of the Milton Berle radio show kept mispronouncing it, gained prominence by winning the ''Allen Amateur Hour'' on Fred Allen's radio show.
Eberly started work in the spring of 1935, just before Tommy walked out on the orchestra.
"Bob made a conscious decision, early in his career, to do as much as he could to support students from underrepresented groups, students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and other special student populations," said Kim Cook, professor of music, in nominating Fedorchak for the award.
For the past sixteen years, he has worked in the Eberly College of Science, where he is responsible for providing guidance and support on all matters that relate to the undergraduate student population.
In 2001, he received the Eberly College of Science Staff Excellence Award and was recognized by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) with a "Best of Region" award for a presentation concerning his model for academic success.
