Local Penn State Alumni Association chapter honored
The Franklin County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association was named a Group of Distinction for 2009 among association chapters as noted in the most recent issue of The Penn Stater, the official magazine of the Penn State Alumni Association. There are nearly 300 affliate groups across the nation and the world, and The Penn Stater stated "to be named a Group of Distinction, affiliate groups must meet a number of criteria including being actively involved in such areas as student support and interaction, networking and fellowship, sports activities, community service projects, membership support and recruitment, communications, volunteer awards program, training sessions, Homecoming and THON-related events." This was the second year the Franklin County Chapter was recognized at this level.
