Student Leader Legacy Scholarship Awarded for 2011-12


Ashley M. Stuck, of LewistownThe on-campus and off-campus activities of an applied human services student from Lewistown have resulted in her selection as the 2011-12 recipient of the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Ashley M. Stuck, who will be entering her junior year at Penn College this fall, was chosen from among numerous applicants for the $1,000 scholarship award.

The Student Leader Legacy Scholarship was established by the Student Government Association in 2007 to encourage and reward student leadership. Recipients are selected from applicants with a grade-point average of at least 2.5 – and a minimum of one year of full-time status remaining in their studies – who have demonstrated through activities on campus and in the surrounding communities a strong determination to continue the legacy of student leadership at Penn College.

Stuck served as executive vice president of SGA in the 2010-11 academic year and was elected president of the Human Services Club for the upcoming academic year. She serves as a mentor for new students in her major, and she has volunteered in a variety of ways off campus, from singing carols in nursing homes to helping build houses for low-income families in Florida.

Stuck is looking to increase the already-strong involvement of the Human Services Club with the City of Williamsport when she begins her term as president of that organization this fall. Stuck is the sixth recipient of an award from the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship Fund.

SGA has conducted a variety of fundraising events for the fund and received other donations since 2007 to make annual scholarship awards while building the fund to an endowment of at least $25,000. The fund reached that level last summer, making it a permanent source of scholarship awards, and Stuck’s is the first award to come solely from investment earnings on the endowment.

Stuck received a plaque at the recent Student Awards Banquet recognizing her selection as the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship recipient. The 2010-11 scholarship recipient, Megan R. Pennington, presented the plaque to Stuck.

SGA continues to build the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship Fund, adding more than $1,000 from a silent auction in April. As the endowment grows, SGA may eventually be able to increase the number and/or size of the awards from the fund.
