New child care center officially dedicated

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Gary Schultz Child Care Center at Hort Woods was officially dedicated on Sept.23. The new facility, located on the corner of Allen Road and Park Avenue on Penn State's University Park campus, can accommodate up to 170 children between 6 weeks and 5 years of age, or until entrance to kindergarten.

The center offers 15 classrooms, a library, kitchen and a secure and enclosed outdoor play area that is built into the existing Hort Woods area on the University Park campus.

Penn State's Board of Trustees approved naming the facility in honor of Gary C. Schultz, senior vice president for finance and business emeritus, who retired from the University in 2009. Schultz, who recently returned to the position on an interim basis, was in attendance at the dedication ceremony along with his wife and family.
