PSU alum inspires with leadership and pride
11/25/2013 When Chancellor Craig Edelbrock established the community and cultural events program at Penn State Great Valley in 2009, his mission was to share local, cultural achievements with the surrounding community. Nowhere is this more evident than in the current exhibit, "Darkness to Light," a student mural on display in the Conference Center Building lobby, 30 E. Swedesford Rd., Malvern. The mural, showcasing now through Dec. 13, is the work of 30 teens of the Bridge Academy, a faith-based, youth and mother's community center in Coatesville. It depicts the town's past, present and future as seen through the eyes of its young residents. The project is testament to the work and collaboration of numerous volunteers and Bridge Academy personnel, including a recent Penn State graduate. Assistant center director, Tyler Changaris, a 2012 College of Communications alumnus, was instrumental to the project and credits his days at Penn State as his inspiration. Read full story >>
