SPORTS MEMORABILIA LEADER, FINANCIAL SERVICES PROVIDER, SNACK FOOD
 INVENTOR AMONG HONOREES AT DREXEL UNIVERSITY CENTENNIAL
 As the curtain comes down on Drexel University's year-long Centennial Observance this weekend, the university will honor its 100 most outstanding alumni.
 Among the Delaware Valley leaders and native sons to be honored are:
 -- Paul J. Goldin, president and chief executive officer of The Score Board Inc. Goldin swung for the fences in the 1980s, accurately predicting the effect that breaking up the Topps' sports card monopoly would have on the sports memorabilia industry. He positioned the Cherry Hill-based Score Board Inc. to take advantage of the popularity sports card and memorabilia collecting has gained. Today, The Score Board Inc. enjoys yearly sales of over $30 million and has been ranked as the third best small company in America by Business Week and the sixth best company in the Delaware Valley by The Philadelphia Inquirer.
 -- Richard A. Greenawalt, president and chief operating officer of Advanta Corp. Greenawalt never leaves home without it -- his Drexel education that is. It has helped him become head of Advanta Corp., a $3.4 billion financial services company in Horsham, Pa., that specializes in credit cards and home equity loans. Through targeted direct-mail campaigns, it has successfully become the fifth largest issuer of gold credit cards in the country.
 -- Miles Willard, creator of Ore-Idas Toaster Hash Browns. For Willard, Drexel University was "all-righta!" Willard, the creator of such popular potato-based foods as Ore-Idas Toaster Hash Browns, and Keebler's O'Boise Snack Chips and Tato Skins, holds 35 patents. With his Drexel degree in chemical engineering, he has spent a career in potato processing and snack food manufacturing.
 Goldin, Greenawalt, Willard and the rest of Drexel University's 100 most outstanding alumni will each receive a special Centennial medal during a ceremony on Saturday, June 13, at 2:30 p.m. in Drexel's Mandell Theater, 3220 Chestnut St., Philadelphia. The awards ceremony will be preceded by a luncheon at noon, in the ballroom of The Rittenhouse, 210 W. Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia.
