Stanley Joehlin named OSU Meritorious Alumnus
Stanley Joehlin has been awarded the Ohio State College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Alumni Society’s 2009 Meritorious Service Award.
Joehlin has been a continuous member of the Industry and Professional Advisory Group for the Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering at Ohio State since 1982.
After graduating from Ohio State with a B.S and M.S. in agricultural engineering, he worked with his father in drainage contracting and farming operations. In 1964, he started as a research and development project engineer at Permaglass Inc. He was subsequently promoted to a manager’s position of a new research and development facility.
When Permaglass merged with Guardian Industries, he joined the resulting company, Glasstech Inc, as engineering manager. He subsequently became VP of Operations and then VP of Customer Service. By 1989, when he left the company, Joehlin had been involved in the design, construction, or start-up of about the first 250 Glasstech tempering lines.
Since leaving Glasstech, Stanley has worked as a consultant to the tempering industry. A member of the advisory board for the local home of The Little Sisters of the Poor, he was active as an assistant to the architect during the building of a new $16.8 million home. He continues to offer support the maintenance supervisor and received the Legacy of Caring award from the Little Sisters in 2008.
Also in 2008, Stanley served as a member of the advisory committee to St. Vincent’s Mercy Children’s Hospital Foundation.
