Central Penn College named ''Guard Friendly'' for second consecutive year
SUMMERDALE, PA– Central Penn College is one of only 43 state universities and colleges to be designated a PNGAS Guard Friendly School by the Pennsylvania National Guard Associations (PNGAS). This is the second year for the award, and the second year Central Penn College earned this distinction.
“We are honored to be recognized as an inclusive, welcoming and friendly institution for those serving in the Pennsylvania National Guard,” said School of Business and Professional Studies Dean Ben Lipschutz, a retired army veteran and an advisor to the college’s Armed Forces Association club.
To support guard members pursuing their education, Central Penn College offers the $1000 PA National Guard Appreciation Scholarship, which is awarded to any student using their Pennsylvania National Guard EAP Benefit for general education use.
The college has approximately 50 students who are either veterans or who are serving with the U.S. military or the National Guard.
