We Are... The Nashville Penn Staters
Happy New Year Nashville Nittany Nation!
The Nashville Penn Staters Chapter board wants to let you know that we are still here and supporting the wonderful university and university family that we all love.
We hope that you all have been faring well. We are optimistic that this year will be better than the last one. At this time, the Alumni Association is still recommending that we remain cautious and not hold any in-person events. We look forward to a time when we can all gather together in person and have some good ole Nittany Nation fun!
We hope you will consider joining/renewing your individual or joint membership. With consideration for the hardships Covid-19 has caused, starting October 1, 2020 our membership prices were decreased to: $25.00 for joint memberships and $15.00 for individual memberships.
• Why should I renew?
Members will receive a 10% discount at our online store for all of your Nashville Penn Staters swag
Members receive a discounted price for any future in-person events the chapter hosts
• Where will my membership dues be going?
The dues will be going to the Nashville Penn Staters Scholarship Fund, normally funded in large part by donations during the football game viewing parties. Without the viewing parties, we were unable to raise as many funds as usual. As you may know, each year our alumni chapter awards a scholarship ($1,000 - $1,500) to a deserving student(s) in the middle Tennessee area. Through the generous donations collected last year, we were able to award scholarships to two local students as they headed back to Penn State this fall. We plan to continue this tradition in 2021 but need your help. If you would like to make additional donations to the scholarship fund those can be made on our website.
Great news and another way to support our chapter and scholarship fund - we now have an Amazon Smiles link! So, if you shop on Amazon, a portion of eligible purchases will be donated to our chapter. Click here and help support our chapter!
WE WANT YOU TO JOIN OUR BOARD
Do you know what makes a great Penn State Alumni Association Chapter? People, people like you who have supported and attended Chapter events throughout the years. Many of us have become friends, networked and given back to our community through Chapter activities. To ensure that these events and this Chapter are able to continue, your involvement is critical! The time commitment is minimal. Our monthly board meetings are virtual so that makes it even easier. The Chapter needs your service NOW to help the Nashville Penn Staters continue to grow and thrive! Our next board meeting is Tuesday February 16th. If you want to check it out, please email our Chapter President, Nicole Canter, email@example.com.
For the Glory!
The board of the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association
