During its 218th commencement, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary honored Melissa Logan, director of communications, with The Calian Prize for Campus Community Service.

This award is given to an exemplary member of the Pittsburgh Seminary community, who demonstrates excellence in carrying out responsibilities and volunteer assignments and also expresses a caring spirit of good will and hope essential in life together as a community. The award is in recognition that all members of the community are an important part of the success of the Seminary.

In reference to this year’s Calian Award winner, the Rev. Dr. William J. Carl III said, “Melissa Logan plays a crucial role on campus as chair of the Employee Life Committee of the Seminary. That’s a natural for her because everything Melissa does promotes community and good culture at PTS. She is loved and respected by her fellow employees because she listens to people, and is always cheerful and smiling—a fitting example of the spirit of the Calian Award!” 

Logan, a resident of Acme, Pa., has served at Pittsburgh Seminary nearly 10 years. In that time, she has been co-chair of the Employee Life Committee, a member of the Community Life Committee, Campus Safety and Security Committee, and the Strategic Planning Advisory Council among others. In her work across all departments, Logan strives to build community and promote team work. “This is a great place to serve and I’m grateful to be a part of the community,” she says. She is a graduate of Westminster College (B.A.) and Liberty University (M.S.).
