Penn State York is celebrating its 12th annual fall commencement at 6 p.m. Dec. 21 in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) at the campus. The Honorable Todd Russell Platts, a member of the U.S. Congress, representing the 19th District of Pennsylvania, is the commencement speaker.

For those who cannot attend the event, Penn State York’s commencement can be viewed on Comcast cable Channel 18 or streaming live on the campus website.

Platts was sworn in as a member of the House of Representatives in January 2001, and he serves the residents of Adams, Cumberland and York counties. In January 2012, Platts announced his plan to retire from Congress at the close of the 112th Congress, which ends Jan. 3, 2013. Click here to view his bio.

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

In addition to hearing from Platts, the top associate, baccalaureate and master’s degree graduates will also 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.
