Penn State Greater Allegheny has received premier sponsorships from two local organizations for the 12th annual All That's Jazz Scholarship Benefit, to be held Nov. 7.

A $7,500 gift from Gala Jewelers along with the Rotary Club of White Oak's $10,000 will be added, with all of the other monies raised at the event, to the scholarship fund on campus. The total raised in the past 11 years is more than $825,000.

"Penn State Greater Allegheny is a valuable resource for the community and we are happy to support it," Chuck Gala, owner of Gala Jewelers, said, adding, "I am also a proud father of a Penn State graduate."

The scholarships benefit so many students each year. One of them is Kelly Hinerman from McKeesport, president of the Student Government Association.  She loves animals and is interested in pursuing a degree in wildlife and fisheries. Hinerman says that receiving a scholarship has been empowering and humbling.

"For a student, to be singled out from a crowd, chosen to do great things, propelled forward by the donor's trust, and to feel the faith behind the gift is truly amazing," Hinerman said. "One day, I want to give back the gift that's been given to me."
