Austin, TX (July 2023) We at Mereo are proud to share that our marketing, sales and product management expert, Joel Reed, was recently awarded the Philip Philip Mitchell Alumni Service Award from Pennsylvania State University! Joel provides a prime example of Seek to Serve™ with his volunteer work at the Penn State University through giving much of his time and talent to his alma mater.

Chris Brida, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, gives insight into what this award means and how Joel was the ideal candidate.

The Philip Philip Mitchell Alumni Service Award recognizes individuals who have “contributed in the area of public service by volunteering their time, talent and resources on behalf of the university, and Joel is the epitome of this.”

Joel has been volunteering at Penn State for many years. To name a few of Joel’s contributions to the college, he has held positions in both college-wide boards, helped pioneer several campaigns and overall changes to the university and became a leader amongst other volunteers.

“Joel is the epitome of a selfless volunteer. He has been involved with, created and improved countless efforts in several areas here at Penn State. He had an overwhelming number of nominations for this award, and he truly embodies what the Philip Philip Mitchell Alumni Service Award stands for. I think I speak for everyone at the university when I say it is an honor and a pleasure to work alongside Joel and we are very grateful for his contributions here.”

Joel accepted the Philip Philip Mitchell Alumni Service Award via video on July 21.

President and founder of Mereo, Jay Mitchell, says: “Seeking to Serve means investing your time and energy to help your buyers truly find a solution to their greatest pains. While Penn State is not a buyer, Joel Reed still exemplifies Seek to Serve through his dedication and drive to help improve and inspire his alma mater.”
