Out with the old, in with the new!

The Nittany TurkeyThis venerable website is getting crusty around the edges, and so is its long-time master, the inimitable Nittany Turkey, who soon will be put out to pasture. Accordingly, you'll be seeing a new look and a new webmaster soon. Jeff Ecker has graciously volunteered to take the reins and he will be off to the races just as soon as this turkey can organize the information he'll need for a seamless and peaceful transfer of power. In the meanwhile, I'd like to thank you all for putting up with my curmudgeonly shenanigans and occasional neglect! GO LIONS!

Football Viewing Parties

We are headed back to Miller’s Orlando Ale House in Winter Park for yet another great season of viewing parties.


Kayleigh Baker Wins Scholarship Award

We are proud to announce this year’s scholarship winner is sophomore Kayleigh Baker from Kissimmee.

Kayleigh is one of only about 60 students who has been selected to participate in the Penn State Architecture Program. These students put in countless hours of work in a studio and during her first year, Kayleigh helped build a design structure for Penn State’s Recycling Center, made entirely out of recycled materials.

Kayleigh also participates as a Lion Scout for the main campus, where she not only gives tours of campus to prospective students, but also participates in fundraising and works with students recently accepted to Penn State. Kayleigh also has been inspired to combine these two “worlds” by proposing a new tour on campus for those interested in learning little-known architectural secrets about Penn State. She invites all of us back to campus for a tour with her!

Please join me in congratulating Kayleigh and all of our local students attending Penn State this coming fall!
