Penn State York commencement set for Dec. 16

Penn State York is celebrating its 11th annual fall commencement at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center at the campus.  Gary C. Butler, a 1971 Penn State graduate in physical education; and president and chief executive officer of Precision Custom Components (PCC) in York, Pa.; is the commencement speaker.  PCC is a manufacturer of custom fabricated pressure vessels, reactors, casks, and heavy walled components requiring highly specialized machining, welding, and/or fabrication.

The campus will award associate and baccalaureate degrees and recognize master's degree graduates during the program.  The ceremony is free and open to the public. 

In addition to hearing from Butler, Penn State York will continue its tradition of the open microphone where graduates can speak for a moment. The top associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degree graduates also will say a few words. A number of former Penn State York students who completed their degree work at another campus of Penn State will return to their home campus, York, to receive their degrees during the ceremony.
