HAZLETON, Pa. — Noah Kurian, a project and supply chain management major from Royersford, has been named student of the month for April.  

Kurian, who will transition to Penn State Harrisburg in the fall to pursue his MBA, said receiving the award was the “cherry on top” of his experience at Penn State Hazleton.  

“I am proud to be considered a Hazleton student, as I will miss the faculty, staff, and students,” Kurian said. “There are a multitude of people who have made an impact on my life at Hazleton, and therefore have created an experience that I will never forget at the campus.”   

According to his faculty nominator, Kurian played an important role during a shared virtual business course between Penn State Hazleton, the University of Paris and the University of Zagreb.  

Kurian served as an unofficial teaching assistant, helping the professor with technological aspects of the course while being conscious of interacting with the international students in attendance in a way that made them comfortable and reflected positively on Penn State Hazleton, his nominator wrote. 

“Noah is a fantastic student who would be worthy of this award for numerous reasons, but his willingness to help me out — and his ability to be a great co-host — really made my life a lot easier this semester,” his nominator said. 

In his spare time, Kurian serves as president of the Business Club and was governmental affairs chair of the Student Government Association before being elevated to head of senate. He is also an active member of the Game Club.
