  3. Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation continue Penn State DuBois scholarship support DuBOIS, Pa. - The Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation of DuBois, Pennsylvania, has made a $20,000 gift to support the Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. First established in 1998 with a $15,000 gift, the foundation pledges support to this scholarship fund each year. This latest contribution will help to serve the fund’s original goal of making education more affordable and accessible to students who have financial need in covering the cost of college expenses. First preference is offered to students whose cultural or ethnic background contributes to the diversity of the student population at Penn State DuBois. All students who have demonstrated a need for financial assistance and show promise of outstanding academic success are eligible for consideration. The Mengle Foundation has long been a supporter of many educational and service-oriented initiatives at Penn State DuBois in addition to scholarships. Other areas the foundation has supported include the funding of technology upgrades in the classroom; Alternative Spring Break trips, during which students volunteer to serve communities in need; and the North Central PA LaunchBox, which provides support and programming to help business and industry thrive in the North Central Pennsylvania region. “The Mengle Foundation exemplifies the power of community support,” said Penn State DuBois Chancellor M. Scott McBride. “Generations of students have enjoyed greater access to higher education thanks to the positive impact this foundation has had on our campus. Those students have gone on to find rewarding careers that allow them, as well, to pay things forward to their communities. We are so grateful to be part of this organization’s lasting legacy.” Representatives from First Commonwealth Bank-Trust serve as trustees for the Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation. The foundation was established in 1960 by Glenn Mengle, then president and CEO of Brockway Glass, with his wife, Ruth, to support charitable, religious, scientific, literary or educational activities. This gift will advance "A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence," a focused campaign that seeks to elevate Penn State’s position as a leading public university in a world defined by rapid change and global connections. With the support of alumni and friends, “A Greater Penn State” seeks to fulfill the three key imperatives of a 21st-century public university: keeping the doors to higher education open to hardworking students regardless of financial well-being; creating transformative experiences that go beyond the classroom; and impacting the world by serving communities and fueling discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship.

  7. When Scott Burrows became paralyzed from his chest down in a car crash, his doctor effectively told him to give up hope. Luckily for him, his father was there to tell him what to do when they try to make you give up. This is a story of determination, and the obstacles that we allow to stop us

  11. Richard Louis “Dick” Fioravanti of DuBois passed away January 15, 2021 at Christ the King Manor. He was known as “Uncle Dick” to everyone. Uncle Dick was born December 1, 1930 in DuBois to the late Anao “Naylor” and Mary (Bergotti) Fioravanti. He graduated from St. Catherine’s High School in 1948 in a class of 28 students. Uncle Dick’s first job was as a brick layer for .39 cents an hour then, was employed at the DuBois Brewery. He served in the Army during the Korean War where he was stationed in Germany. When he returned, he lived and worked construction in CA and FL. Uncle Dick was a longtime employee of Brockway Glass as Group Leader Application Development Management Information Services, where he retired December, 1988. He was a member of St. Catherine’s Roman Catholic Church, the Big O, Litts Club, Pulaski Club, the VFW and the Fraternal of the Eagles. I’m sure there are a few we missed. Besides his parents he was preceded in death by a brother Nicholas Fioravanti (wife Antoinette survives). He is survived by his sister with whom he resided, Angelina “Angie” Lucia Russell. His nieces and nephew, (Denise (Tim) Tomco of North Versailles, Corrine (Randy) Jackson of North Huntingdon, Louis (Stacey) Russell, Jr. of Erie and Nicole (Cory) Sawyers of DuBois), 11 great nephews and nieces, (Robbie and Kenny (Jayme) Tomco, Nicholas and Benjamin Jackson, Taylor, Teddy (fiancé Caitlyn) and Olivia Russell, Mia, Alex and Ryan Kovalyak & Santino Sawyer), Great-Great nephew and niece Jace and Raegan Tomco. Uncle Dick’s memory for stories, dates and names was phenomenal, his story telling was second to none. In the early 1960’s Uncle Dick and a couple of friends left for a Notre Dame football game on Thursday and got to the game on Saturday at the end of the 3rd quarter. When we asked what took so long, he said “there are a lot of bars between here and South Bend”. We are sure he could still name all the bars. He loved to watch any sport that his nephews and nieces were playing. Uncle Dick we love you and we all will miss you. There will be no public visitation and private funeral services will be held from the Baronick Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc with Msgr. Richard Siefer officiating. The Baronick Funeral Home & Crematorium, Inc. is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences can be made to http://baronickfuneralhome.com/condolence
