Freshmen Send-Off 2010!

The Lawrence County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association sponsored its annual Freshmen Send-Off on Wednesday, August 11th at Pearson Park in Neshannock Township.    Fifteen incoming Freshmen Penn State students were present with members of their families.  These students will attend Penn State campuses at University Park, Behrend in Erie, Beaver campus, and Shenango campus in Sharon.

Our featured guest speaker was Charlene Gauz, Regional Director of the Penn State Alumni Association.  Her topic was a Top Ten List for students and a Top Ten List for parents.  Also speaking were current students - and former scholarship winners - Jordon Hill, who attends University Park, and Adriannna Fraschetti, who attends Penn State Behrend Campus in Erie.   Another guest speaker was Jessica Meeder, a Penn State Lion Ambassador.  Jessica explained the purpose of the Lion Ambassadors and answered questions from parents and students.  

The Send-Off event culminated with the announcement of the Chapters' three $500.00 scholarship recipients (more about the winners, here).
