McQuaide Blasko employee authors Gazette article

Two members of McQuaide Blasko's legal team were involved in the Nov. 8 issue of the Centre County Gazette: Shareholder Katherine Allen was featured in an article written by copy-center clerk Anne Walker. The article details Ms. Allen's recent election as president of the board of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts.

Ms. Walker joined McQuaide Blasko in 2008. Last August, she began writing for the Gazette, focusing on Centre County events and individuals who have a positive impact on the community. A Penn State alumna, she draws on her bachelor's degree in English and her background in classical dance to cover fine and performing arts and human interest stories, as well as horse-related topics.

A longtime Arts Festival supporter, Ms. Allen has served on the organization's board since 2008, most recently as vice president. An attorney with McQuaide Blasko's State College office, Ms. Allen concentrates her practice in employment law and litigation, civil rights litigation, and higher education law.
