The Penn State Worthington Scranton Alumni Society presented a $5,000 check to the campus for its Student Hardship Fund. The Student Hardship Fund, also known as an Emergency Assistance Fund, was established three years ago to help students who find themselves in dire financial need due to an unexpected life circumstance that negatively impacts their ability to meet their financial obligations.
