A City-Wide 'Best Secretary'

Monica Dalin, assistant to the chair in chemical engineering, was one of five winners in the city-wide "Best Secretary Contest" sponsored by HQ Business Center a world-wide firm with offices in Center City Philadelphia.

On Secretary's Day, Mayor Ed Rendell presented certificates to the five, who were chosen from some 300 nominees on the basis of 50-word statements sent by their supervisors. Ms. Dalin was nominated by Dr. T. Kyle Vanderlick, Class of 1942 Term Professor, who wrote:

Like Lou Grant, I have a Mary who can turn the world on with a smile. Like Captain Stubin, I have a Julie who keeps the ship sailing smoothly. When the going gets tough, I have Thelma and Louise to set things straight. My dream team is my secretary--Monica.

Ms. Dalin joined Penn in 1987 and moved to the chemical engineering department in 1992 as graduate assistant to Dr. Vanderlick. Ms. Dalin was promoted to the assistant to the chair in 1995.
