Presidents of three alumni organizations that support the Penn State Worthington Scranton service area addressed the campus’ Faculty Senate recently to provide information on the history, contributions and motivations of the groups. Rick Pambianco, president of the Penn State Worthington Scranton Alumni Society; Mike Rescigno, president of the Greater Scranton Chapter; and Marti Duffy, president of the Wayne-Pike Penn State Chapter each addressed the assembly. They were introduced by Deborah Brandt Johnson, interim assistant director of development & alumni relations.
 
The Penn State Worthington Scranton Alumni Society (established in 1987), the Greater Scranton Penn State Chapter (established in 1979) and the Wayne-Pike Penn State Chapter (established in 1994) have cumulatively provided Campus and University support in excess of a quarter of a million dollars, in addition to personal contributions and countless hours of volunteer service to the Campus, University and local community. Since their inception, each group has contributed to Penn State annually toward scholarships, academic and extracurricular programs, faculty research, athletics, renovations, facilities and other projects.The three groups were responsible for spearheading and funding the acquisition of a Nittany Lion Sculpture for the campus, which is now proudly displayed near the Penn State Worthington Scranton entrance.
