November 09, 2011

"Penn State A.M.," the biannual alumni breakfast that has been a staple for the Alle-Kiski Society and Penn State New Kensington since 2003, is set for a new venue at 8 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, at McCutcheon Enterprises Inc. in Apollo, Pa. Penn State alumni Calvin McCutcheon, president of McCutcheon Enterprises, and Jack Crook, compliance chief for oil and gas at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, will be the featured speakers.

McCutcheon will discuss the waste management industry including the disposal of "fracking" water from Marcellus shale drilling. Crook's talk will focus on water use and erosion issues of the oil and gas industry. Participants will be able to start the work day by joining fellow Penn Staters for a free breakfast, featuring Happy Valley's famous grilled stickies.

The morning social is geared to alumni who live and work in the greater Pittsburgh area. The breakfast is free to the public. To R.S.V.P. for the breakfast, contact Bill Woodard, at 724 334-6049 or uxw1@psu.edu. For more about McCutcheon and Crook, visit http://www.nk.psu.edu/44070.htm online.
