2016 Alumni Meritorious Service Awards

Paul E. Seale '75, P'06

Paul Seale graduated from Gettysburg 41 years ago, but has remained actively engaged on numerous levels with the College since the day he left.

As evidence of that, he received the Gettysburg College Young Alumni Service Award in 1990 for his involvement with his alma mater during his first 15 years as an alumnus, and he has continued to ramp up his volunteerism since then. Currently, Seale is a Young Alumni Leadership Program Mentor through the Garthwait Leadership Center and offers job shadowing opportunities for current students through Gettysburg Career Connections. He’s also been a leader with his class, serving as co-chair of his 30th, 35th, and 40th reunions.

Previously, he served on the Commission on the Future, the Board of Fellows, the National Committee for the Sciences and as a Class Agent. For 41 years he has been a volunteer for the Admissions office through the KARE program.

Seale is currently the Managing Director of Hospital Operations at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, where he oversees day-to-day operations of the highly acclaimed facility.

He graduated with a BA in Biology and earned his M.S. in 1977 from Long Island University-Brooklyn. As an undergraduate, Seale was a brother of Phi Delta Theta and the captain of the men’s lacrosse team, as was his son, Doug, a 2006 graduate.

Jean Deimler Seibert '69, P'06

Jean Seibert has served Gettysburg College at the highest level, as evidenced by her 14 years on the Board of Trustees, but that is just the pinnacle of an impressive lifetime of service to her alma mater.

Seibert served on the Board from 1998 to 2012, when she was named a Trustee Emeritus, and continued to serve after that on the Campaign Steering Committee. Prior to her time on the Board of Trustees, she was a stalwart member of the Board of Fellows, and has also served on almost all of her Reunion Committees. Additionally, she served on the Commission on the Future as chair of the Task Force on Economics & Management, the Greek Life Advisory Council, the Campaign Planning Committee, the Gift Recognition Task Force, and the Planned Giving Committee.

She has done all this despite a demanding career in law. She is currently an Attorney and Partner at Caldwell & Kearns, a Harrisburg real estate and business law firm that she joined in 2014. Previously, Seibert worked for 21 years as an Attorney and Partner at Wion, Zulli & Seibert.

Seibert, whose daughter, SaraMarian, is a member of the Class of 2006, graduated magna cum laude from Gettysburg College. In recognition of her extraordinary academic achievements, the Gamma Phi Beta sister was elected to Phi Beta Kappa Honorary Society and Pi Lambda Sigma Economics Honorary Society. Siebert completed a Master of Arts from Syracuse University in 1974 and earned a Doctor of Laws, Prelaw/Law from Dickinson College in 1984.
