 PENJERDEL COUNCIL HONORS MERCK & CO.,
 SEPTA'S LOU GAMBACCINI WITH ANNUAL AWARDS
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The PENJERDEL Council has named Louis J. Gambaccini, chief operations officer/general manager of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), as its 1992 Citizen of the Year, and Merck & Co. (NYSE: MRK) of Montgomery County as its 1992 Company of the Year, according to Thomas M. Collins, chairman of The PENJERDEL Council.
 The honorees will accept their awards at The PENJERDEL Council Annual Awards Luncheon and Meeting at the Hotel Atop the Bellevue on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Dr. Michael L. King, vice president of North American Operations for the Merck Manufacturing Division based at Merck & Co.'s campus in West Point, Pa., will be accepting the award on behalf of the company.
 Merck & Co., a nationwide pharmaceutical firm, is a leader in discovering, developing, producing and marketing products and services for the maintenance and restoration of health and the environment. Of its nine divisions, four are represented at the expanding 321-acre campus at West Point, Montgomery County. As Merck's largest U.S. facility, the campus employs more than 5,000 people. For the past six years, Merck & Co. has been named as America's Most Admired Corporation by Fortune Magazine's Corporate Reputations Survey.
 Gambaccini, who took over the helm of SEPTA in 1988, is widely credited for leading the effort to secure dedicated funding for SEPTA as well as 37 other state public transportation systems. He has also focused upon enhancing SEPTA's passenger services, making the experience more pleasant for riders. Gambaccini has held many posts with national transportation organizations and now serves as vice chairman of the American Public Transit Association. During his career, he has held a number of positions with New York and New Jersey transit systems, including the role of New Jersey's commissioner of Transportation and chairman of the New Jersey Transit Corp.
 "In honoring Merck & Co. and Lou Gambaccini, we recognize the exceptional contribution each has made to the regional community. While Lou has worked to preserve and enhance a vital economic asset, Merck has continued to pursue excellence in an increasingly competitive marketplace while expanding its commitment to the region," said Collins.
 The PENJERDEL Council has been honoring Delaware Valley companies and business leaders for nearly 40 years. PENJERDEL is a non-profit business association that focuses on issues that affect the region, primarily transportation, energy, the maritime industry, defense and water supply issues.
