Penn State Greater Allegheny celebrates 30th annual Honors Convocation

Penn State Greater Allegheny held its 30th annual Honors Convocation at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, in the Wunderley Gymnasium on campus. Chancellor Curtiss E. Porter presided. Nearly 100 Penn State Greater Allegheny students received awards for academic achievement and leadership.

Each year, scholarships are awarded in a number of categories, such as academic achievement, honors and scholars, National Honor Society in Psychology, Psi Chi, and the Chancellor?s Literary Awards, which are selected by the chancellor to represent the best from among the literary and visual arts produced at the campus by either full- or part-time students.

Other named scholarships and campus awards cover a broad range of criteria for each respective honor, such as the John W. Beatty Memorial Scholarship, Kalich Family Student Leadership Award, and the Rhodes Student Leadership Award, which recognizes academic achievement and community service by an undergraduate student at Greater Allegheny.

In addition, the Penn State Greater Allegheny Alumni Society awarded scholarships from its endowed fund.
