IUP Punxsutawney held its annual Student Banquet in April 2018 at Mary’s Place to honor students who achieved academic excellence on many levels. Students selected to receive the Punxsutawney Endowed Scholarship were recognized, as well as Dean’s List
recipients and students who earned the Punxsutawney Person of Purpose award.
The 2018 recipients are (from left) Amber Huffman, Alexis Zanaglio, Isaac Bianco, Heather Bair, and Maggie Prutznal.
The Punxsutawney Endowed Scholarship has been offered for many years and is available to any full-time IUP Punxsutawney degree-seeking student in good academic and judicial standing. Awards are based on fall semester academic success, participation in
campus and community opportunities, and an essay. Heather Giavedoni, a 2017 IUP graduate and former Endowed Scholarship recipient, delivered the keynote address.
