Alberts Family Scholarship Established at Penn College

A local couple has recognized the excellence of Pennsylvania College of Technology’s plastics program with a new scholarship.

Established by Ed and Linda Alberts, the Alberts Family Scholarship will benefit students enrolled in the plastics and polymer engineering technology bachelor-degree major and the plastics and polymer technology associate-degree program.

The Alberts own Montoursville-based Ralph S. Alberts Company Inc., known as one of the country’s most resourceful full-service, multifaceted, custom molder of plastics and foams.

“We have been challenged by the world’s continuing demands for creativity and technology,” according to Ed and Linda Alberts. “This has enabled our business to grow and provide jobs for the past 53 years. We thank Penn College for providing the education needed in our industry.”

The building-to-endowed scholarship will be merit-based for plastics majors with preference given to full-time students who have successfully completed two semesters and have demonstrated an ability to creatively apply their knowledge of plastics and polymers. The scholarship will be renewable for a maximum of three years.

“Linda and Ed have been friends and supporters of Penn College for many years,” said Robb Dietrich, executive director of the Penn College Foundation. “We’re excited that there will now be a permanent scholarship in their name, and we thank them for their generosity.”
