Local high school students to be inducted into Penn State Fayette’s 4.0 Club

6/13/2012 —

High school students from 30 high schools in Fayette, Greene, Washington, Somerset and Westmoreland counties will be inducted into Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ 4.0 Club on Saturday, June 23, at 9:30 a.m. in the Community Center Main Arena on campus. Graduating seniors, along with juniors, sophomores and freshmen who finished the 2012 academic year with a cumulative 4.0 or better GPA since starting high school were offered admittance to this organization designed to recognize local students for academic achievement. The guest speaker will be Katie Semans, a 2005 Laurel Highlands High School graduate, who earned her undergraduate degree from WVU and is soon to earn her physician’s assistant degree from Mt. Union University.

Planning Committee co-chair and Penn State Fayette kinesiology instructor, Jes Hutson, says, “The 4.0 Club was well received last year when it debuted. This year we are pleased to expand the reach of the 4.0 Club beyond Fayette County to all the high schools in the Fayette campus’ region. Because there are banquets and events in Fayette County to honor athletes, scholar-athletes and students involved in community service, it made sense to try and start something to recognize students with a 4.0 or better GPA.”

United Bank is the key sponsor of this year’s 4.0 Club. Tickets for the event are free for the inductees and $3 for guests. The event includes breakfast.

Letters containing information about the 4.0 Club were sent to 30 area high schools. However, if a qualifying student did not receive information, please contact the Penn State Fayette admissions office at 724-430-4130. All reservations must be made by June 18. No tickets will be sold at the door.
