LVC Graduate to be Pennsylvania’s Next Governor
11.03.10 |
Tom Corbett, LVC Class of 1971 and current second-term Pennsylvania Attorney General, was elected as the 46th governor of Pennsylvania. He will be inaugurated on Jan. 18, 2011 at the state Capitol. Susan Manbeck Corbett, his wife of 38 years, is a member of LVC’s Class of 1972.

Corbett completed his undergraduate education at Lebanon Valley College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in political science. He received his juris doctor degree from St. Mary’s University Law School, and practiced law with the Allegheny County district attorney’s office. In 1980, he became an assistant U.S. Attorney, and was appointed to serve as U.S. attorney by President George H.W. Bush from 1988 to 1992. Corbett completed an unfinished term as attorney general in the mid-1990s, and was elected attorney general in 2004, and re-elected in 2008.

While a student at LVC, Corbett was a member of the lacrosse team, a lifeguard, and a member of Phi Lambda Sigma—a social fraternity founded in 1867. He has said he especially valued his coursework in political science with Dr. Alex Fehr, LVC Class of 1950, who encouraged him to pursue a career in public service, and in history with Dr. Elizabeth Geffen, where he recounted that he learned to think critically about cultural, political, scientific, and technical influences. Corbett received the 2008 Distinguished Alumnus Award from the College.

Susan Manbeck Corbett received her degree in English at LVC and the couple married after her graduation in 1972. She began her career teaching senior English in the Northern Lebanon School District before the couple moved to Texas where Governor-Elect Corbett attended law school. After their two children, Tom and Kate, were born, Susan dedicated several years to raising their family.

Susan resumed her professional career as a special projects manager for the President’s Office at Carnegie Museums and the Director’s Office of the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh. She served as assistant producer, then executive director, of Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures, a nationally recognized literary arts organization. Susan is currently the vice president of programs and development of the Gettysburg Foundation, a non-profit organization that works with the National Park Service to enhance the preservation and understanding of the heritage and lasting significance of Gettysburg.
