Silent auction to benefit legacy scholarship at Penn College

March 12, 2014

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.
