Penn State Shenango will have an inaugural Dr. Jane A. Williams Memorial 5K Run/11/2 Mile Walk at 9 a.m. Oct. 6 on the Shenango campus located downtown.
The event is in honor of Williams, who was employed at the Shenango campus for 25 years until her death last May after a brief illness. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jane A. Williams Memorial Fund.
According to Stephanie Chastain, interim director of Student Enrollment and Engagement at Penn State Shenango, “The idea for a 5K to be held in Jane’s honor was sparked by the memory of Jane’s spirited nature, her love for Penn State and her enthusiasm for walking and running. We are anticipating a great turnout.”
Registration forms are available in the Student Affairs Office, Sharon Hall room 103, or online at shenango.psu.edu/jane5k. For information, contact the Student Affairs Office at 724-983-2836.
