Scholarship recipients, donors recognized at special dinner
Scholarship recipients, scholarship donors, and family and friends gathered recently for a special recognition dinner at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The event, now in its fifth year, provides an opportunity for scholarship recipients to get to know some of the individuals that make a Penn State education possible. This year, 270 Penn State Fayette students were awarded scholarships.
Lori Omatick, director of Development at Penn State Fayette, says, “It is very gratifying to witness the fruits of our development efforts each year as the scholars interact with those responsible for making the scholarships possible. We are truly fortunate to be part of such a generous community. Without the sincere generosity of our scholarship donors, many of our students would not be here at Penn State.”
Penn State Fayette student Emily Marchewka spoke at the event on behalf of student scholarship recipients about receiving the James M. Driscoll Scholarship and how it has helped her on her college journey.
