High school students from seven local Fayette County schools will be inducted into Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ 4.0 Club on Saturday, June 25, at 9:30 a.m. in the Community Center Main Arena on campus. Graduating seniors, along with juniors and sophomores, who finished the 2011 academic year with a cumulative 4.0 or better GPA since starting high school were offered admittance to this new organization.

Jes Hutson, Planning Committee chair and Penn State Fayette kinesiology instructor, explains, “There are banquets and events in Fayette County to honor athletes, scholar-athletes and students involved in community service, and it made sense to try and start something county-wide to recognize and honor our very best and brightest students with a 4.0 or better GPA.”

The Community Foundation of Fayette County is sponsoring the inaugural year of the 4.0 Club. Tickets for the event are free for the inductees and $8 for guests. The event includes a light breakfast.

Letters containing information about the 4.0 Club were sent to all county high schools. However, if a qualifying student did not receive information, please contact the admissions office at 724-430-4130. All reservations must be made by June 21. No tickets will be sold at the door.
