The criteria for “Group of Distinction” is based on strict guidelines established by the Penn State Alumni Association. For the fiscal year which ended June 30, 2011: the WNY chapter far exceeded the required criteria which is based on the chapter’s programming over a 12 month period.
Chapter President, Douglas Kellner, commented on the news of the honor: “We are extremely proud of achieving this honor for another year. The Penn State Alumni Association recognizes that the alumni in WNY are proud of our university and want to stay connected as evidenced by our membership and programs. We could not achieve this honor without the hard work by our core Board members and those members who participate in our programs and pay their dues”.
Thank you to all of our members in helping our chapter earn this prestigious designation!
