Student Leader Legacy Scholarship awardees announced

Two active Penn College students have each been selected to receive a $1,350 award from the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship, established by the Student Government Association in 2007 to encourage and reward student leaders by easing their tuition costs. The 2019-20 recipients, revealed in a YouTube video by outgoing SGA President Patrick C. Ferguson, are Sophia G. Wiest, an entrepreneurial innovation major from Butler, and Ethan M. McKenzie, of Muncy, enrolled in software development and information management. “The Student Government Association is very thankful that two Student Leader Legacy Scholarships were able to be awarded,” said Allison A. Grove, director of student engagement. “Looking to the future, SGA has plans to host an event in Fall 2020, in addition to the Silent Auction that will be held in Spring 2021.” The fund – from which a total of $21,950 has been distributed since its inception – is fully endowed; the silent auction and other dedicated fundraisers, however, have increased both the amount and the frequency of awards.
