Cherokee native receives award

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Pamela Fassler Horner, a native of Cherokee, is this year's recipient of the Louis B. Marks Award, an award which recognizes exceptional service to the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA).

Horner, who is Director of Government and Industry Relations for OSRAM SYLVANIA, joined the IESNA in 1977. In addition to her considerable service to a number of local sections, she has served as society president (2001-2002), as director on the society's board (1989-1990, 1997-1999) and as regional vice president (RVP) director (1988-1989).

She served as chair of the IESNA Centennial Conference Program Committee and as chair/member of numerous committees. In 2004, she received the society's Distinguished Service Award.

Her educational leadership and initiatives include teaching courses, seminars, workshops and forums, all of which go beyond teaching to policy making and advocacy for quality lighting in the development of sustainable lighting design practice.

For the 2007 Quality Lighting in a Green World Symposium, she brought together representatives of the building industry to address partnerships to ensure quality in sustainable lighting design.

In all her service to the industry and to the society, she demonstrates her care about lighting and its effect on the environment and society. Pam is an inspiration and role model for future generations of lighting professionals.

Horner is the daughter of the late Robert and Marjorie Fassler and graduated from Washington High School in 1965. She currently resides in Groveland, Massachusetts.
