The Schuylkill County chapter has been active for over 30 years and has made significant contributions to the community including the endowment of the Robert P. Swank scholarship, awarded annually to a resident of Schuylkill County who attends the Schuylkill Campus.
Annually, the chapter holds a Berky ice cream sale to promote our chapter and raise funds for our scholarship.
Past activities include golf tournaments, bus trips to Penn State sporting and cultural events, and special events held locally with guest speakers such as Jay Paterno, John Black, and other distinguished speakers.
In coordination with the Louisiana Chapter, the Schuylkill Chapter contributed $500 to help Penn Staters with hurricane relief efforts.
The chapter has also taken part in the Pottsville Bicentennial Parade and other local community events.
We’re always looking for new members to grow our Penn State family and new ideas to stay active with everything Penn State!
