Alle-Kiski Alumni Society awards $4,400 in scholarships to campus students

Nathan Piluso, Nathan Schartner, Justine Rojeski, Jay Eiler

UPPER BURRELL, Pa. -- The Alle-Kiski Society of the Penn State Alumni Association awarded $4,400 in scholarships recently to four Penn State New Kensington students: Nathan Piluso of Kittanning, Nathan Schartner of Pittsburgh, Justine Rojeski of Apollo, and Jay Eiler of Brackenridge. Piluso and Schartner earned $1,500 each, and Rojeski and Eiler received $700 apiece. The society's scholarship is funded through the proceeds of the annual alumni golf scramble, held in August at the Links at Spring Church in Apollo. In the past three years, the tournament has raised $32,000. Since 1998, the society has awarded $45,000 to 52 campus students. The amount awarded is expected to rise dramatically in the next few years as the alumni group increased its endowment level by nearly 70 percent over the past four years, from $51,000 to $92,000. The society's scholarship was established in 1992 with an initial principal of $15,000. Six years later, it was fully endowed at $25,000. The first campus recipient, Pat Neil, earned a $500 scholarship. Penn State alumni and friends are encouraged to reconnect with the University and campus by attending the Alle-Kiski Society meetings at 6:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month. The next meeting is Feb. 16 at the Elks Lodge in Tarentum. For more about the scholarship and recipients, visit http://www.nk.psu.edu/Information/News/46028.htm#NEWS46028
