Penn College Campus Again Serves as Gateway to World Series Welcome

Penn College helped open the Little League World Series for the fifth straight year Wednesday, serving a picnic dinner to the 16 teams in competition before accompanying them to the Grand Slam Parade that formed near the main campus’ northwestern boundary. Players, coaches, team “uncles,” umpires and other guests were also treated to an exhibit of past Series photographs, running through month’s end in The Gallery at Penn College. As the parade moved downtown from Grier Street, student and employee volunteers – led by President Davie Jane Gilmour and the college’s tireless Wildcat mascot – interacted with spectators through giveaways and goodwill. The events also attracted video coverage from regional media outlets, including WOLnews.
