The Schuylkill County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association 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. The Chapter has been recognized with ELM level of distinction by the Penn State Alumni Association for 2019.
Annually, the chapter holds a Berkey Creamery 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.
We are always looking for new members to grow our Penn State family and new ideas to stay active with everything Penn State! We Are… Penn State!
