Bert Evans understands that often the greatest hurdle a student can face is a financial one, which is why he and his wife, Josette, have established several scholarship funds that help make higher education an attainable goal for many Penn State Schuylkill students.
Penn State has named the John E. Morgan Foundation its inaugural Foundation Partner of the Year. The award recognizes the Morgan Foundation’s long history of philanthropy toward a wide range of programs across the University.
Michael Cardamone, former physics professor at Penn State Schuylkill, and his wife, Barbara, both Penn State alumni, have established the Dr. Michael and Barbara Cardamone Renaissance Scholarship, which will benefit high-achieving students with the greatest financial need.
Penn State alumnus Ken Schoener recently created a new Open Doors Scholarship with a gift of $30,000, which the University will match 2:1 through the Open Doors Scholarship Program. He also made an estate commitment to give another $125,000 to the University for the Dorothy L. Schoener Memorial Scholarship he established in 2000.
Penn State Schuylkill celebrated the kick-off of the new University-wide fundraising campaign with honored guests at the Blue and White Dinner, held Oct. 20 at the Schuylkill Country Club, Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania.
