Charles W. Dent Virtual Celebration
Thank you for joining us as we payed tribute to the
former Congressman and Penn State alumnus, Charlie Dent,
for his many years of service to our community,
while raising essential funds for the Charles W. Dent STEM wing.
Special guests at this virtual event included CNN broadcast personality Mike Smerconish, Former PPL President, Bill Spence, and The Honorable Charlie Dent himself. Music was performed by the Penn State Blue Band and the Allen High School Chorale. Thanks to those of you who showed your support of our expansion
by participating in our silent auction.
Watch the event
Our new expansion project and renovations include the addition of a full-service cafeteria and Admissions Welcome Center, a STEM wing featuring a 2,200 sq. ft. organic chemistry lab, as well as additional classroom, tutoring, and student networking space. This $14.4 million project has been funded to date, by the University, $1.6 million from our Student Government Association and through corporate and private donations. But we need your help! To realize our goal of completing the project, we must secure private gift commitments for $1.8 million from alumni and friends like you!
