Silent auction to benefit legacy scholarship at Penn College

The Student Government Association at Pennsylvania College of Technology will hold its annual Silent Auction on Thursday, March 27, to benefit a student-nurtured scholarship fund that spotlights community involvement and campus leadership.

The public is invited to attend the auction, to be held from noon to 5 p.m. in Penn’s Inn on the second floor of Penn College’s Bush Campus Center.

While items will continue to be added through the start of bidding, the sale list currently includes a wooden bear carving donated by the Student Activities Office, crystal bowls from The Street of Shops, two tickets for a current season’s show at the Community Arts Center, a pair of lift-ticket vouchers from Ski Sawmill Family Resort, and gift certificates to local restaurants.

Dionisios D. Tomboris, of Dover, enrolled in the information technology: information assurance and security concentration major, is the event’s student chair.

SGA, which created the Student Leader Legacy Scholarship in 2006 as a way to help students succeed while rewarding leadership at Penn College, has done numerous fundraisers over the years to grow the fund and enable annual gifts. One student received $1,750 in the Spring 2013 semester, and SGA’s goal is to grow the fund’s endowment to provide even larger annual scholarships – beginning with $2,000 in the 2014-15 academic year.

The Student Leader Legacy Scholarship criteria requires applicants to demonstrate leadership and volunteer experience, and to be full-time students with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and at least one academic year remaining in their studies.
