Endowed Scholarship Information

The Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter endowed scholarship fund continues to grow and provide scholarships to area upperclassmen students already enrolled at Penn State.  Our chapter has made great strides to ensure our ability to award these scholarships for as long as our chapter is in existence.  With our recent contributions and rollover interest from previous years, we have positioned our chapter to be able to award a total of four endowed scholarships from this point forward.  If you would like to make a donation to the chapter Endowed Scholarship fund, please make sure you are using the correct allocation code.  The verbiage for this fund is “The Great Susquehanna Valley Penn State Chapter Endowed Scholarship Fund”.  Our club allocation code is SXXGQ.  If you have any questions about donating to the Endowed Scholarship fund, or any other scholarship questions, please contact Curt Rothermel at 570 966-7197 or rocktown91@yahoo.com.

It is with great pleasure and pride that the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association announces the naming of our chapter endowed scholarship fund.  More than 40 years ago, four area Penn State Alumni had a vision of starting an alumni chapter in this area.  Over the last 40+ years, our chapter has grown to become one of the most active Alumni Association chapters in the country.   Our chapter has been recognized by the Penn State Alumni Association with several national awards, including the Networking and Fellowship award in 2006 and the first ever “Honorary Nittany Lion Mascot” award, presented by the Penn State Cheerleading squad in 2007.  From our humble beginnings to our present day membership of 400 dues paying families, one couple has been instrumental in moving the Greater Susquehanna Valley chapter forward, constantly striving to do what is best for the Chapter, our membership and the Pennsylvania State University.  Their never ending efforts to build and maintain our chapter relationship with the Penn State Cheerleaders has made the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter Annual Pig Roast legendary, attended by University Officials, former football players, alumni, fans and supporters every August.  Their honest,  sincere love of Penn State should be obvious to anyone whose lives have been touched by this couple.  From this day forward, the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association’s endowment scholarship awards will be known as The Greater SusquehannaValley Chapter Endowed Scholarship in honor of Bob and Edythe Werba and will be awarded as such in perpetuity.
