Lori Ann Yoder is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Yoder, 1239 West Mulberry Street, Shamokin, Pennsylvania. She is a 1978 graduate of Shamokin High School and is presently enrolled in Geisinger Medical Center School of Radiographic Technology.

During her high school career, Lori was a four-year varsity member of the girls basketball team, acting as captain during her senior year. She also captained the girls track team during this past season. In addition, she also participated in softball and cross-country.

While varsity sports took up much of her time, she also participated in volleyball and badminton on an intramural level. Her teams won championships in each of three years in volleyball and in two years in badminton.

During the 1977-78 academic year, Lori was Merit Award Recipient and is awaiting her biography to be published in Who’s Who Among American High School Students. In addition, Lori was given the American Legion Award and was the Shamokin Elks Teenager for the month of December.

Last fall, Lori was chosen Shamokin Area’s Homecoming Queen and, this last summer represented Shamokin Area High School as a member of the Queen’s Court in the Annual Anthracite Memorial Parade.

Lori Ann Yoder’s personality and fine example will certainly serve as guidelines for future recipients of the scholar athlete award given by the Lower Anthracite Chapter of the Pennsylvania Hall of Fame.
