Harrisburg to dedicate the Courtney Pollock Memorial Field and Softball Complex

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — The dedication of the Courtney Pollock Memorial Field and Softball Complex at Penn State Harrisburg will be held at 2:30 p.m. April 12, at the softball field on Olmsted Drive on campus.

The event will honor the memory of Penn State alumna Courtney Pollock, who died in June 2013 from cancer.

Pollock was a native of the Capital Region, and graduated from Lower Dauphin High School in 1999 where she played softball and field hockey and actively volunteered in the community. She graduated from Penn State in 2003 with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education and went on to teach and coach in the Lower Dauphin and Central Dauphin School Districts.

Pollock was the daughter of Douglas W. Pollock, a Penn State alumnus and collegiate athlete. The Douglas W. Pollock Foundation made a $750,000 donation to support the college’s athletics and the naming of the field and softball complex.

The foundation has supported Penn State Harrisburg since 2014. They have endowed the Courtney Pollock Memorial Trustee Scholarship, a need-based scholarship benefiting students in the elementary education program at Penn State Harrisburg.

Following the ceremony, the Penn State Harrisburg women’s softball team will take on Penn State Abington at 3 p.m.
