Harold DentonIn a crisis you want a leader who is calm, unassuming, and honest. You want someone just like Harold Denton, said Dr. Holly Angelique, professor of community psychology at Penn State Harrisburg.

Denton, a nuclear engineer who had no experience dealing with the public, wasn’t flashy or loud or famous. But when the Three Mile Island (TMI) nuclear power plant suffered a partial meltdown in March 1979, Denton was the perfect person to explain the situation to a panicked public.

In graduate school, Dr. Kimberly A. Schreck met a 14-year-old boy with autism who changed her life.

The boy didn’t just sleepwalk – he threw furniture out of second floor windows while sleeping. Schreck began wondering whether the boy’s sleep deprivation contributed to his aggression.

“Nobody had ever looked at that,” said Schreck, now professor of psychology and program chair of social sciences and psychology at Penn State Harrisburg.

Her graduate school advisor said, “You’ll spend your career working on this.” He was right.
