Larry Pribyl, assistant director of Broadcast Communications with University Advancement in the Department of News and Research Communications, has been recognized as the Professional Faculty Leadership Association’s December 2014 ‘Our Hero.’

He was presented with a plaque and an ‘Our Hero’ mug at a meeting on Dec. 15 by PFLA representatives.

Pribyl is being recognized for his work ethic, professionalism, skills and resourcefulness.  His nominators say he lives and breathes OSU’s commitment to service and excellence and is also a mentor to others.

“Larry is fiercely proud of OSU,” his nominators wrote. “His behind-the-scenes work with the Discovery Channel, major broadcast networks, other media outlets and the Pac-12 has strengthened OSU’s international reputation for excellence. He has conceived of and helped to produce OPB programs about OSU people on Oregon Field Guide and Oregon Experience.”
