Kenny Hager Memorial Scholarship
First diagnosed with an exceptionally rare form of bone and skin cancer in 1984 at the age of 12, Kenny Hager showed the courage and attitude that would guide him and insure his victory of disease. This disease did not stop Kenny from enrolling at California University of Pennsylvania in the Graphic Communications Technology program. Kenny exhibited a passion for the field of graphic communications that manifested itself in many ways. He enjoyed printing, photography, and participated in the Student Club of Printing House Craftsman. Kenny's life-long battle with cancer ended on December 23, 1994. In memory of Kenny, this scholarship was established by the Hager family and is meant to benefit a qualified student majoring in the Graphics and Multimedia program.
Kurt Nordstrom Memorial Scholarship
A 1982 California University of Pennsylvania graduate, Kurt Nordstrom, earned a degree in Industrial Management/Printing Management from the School of Science and Technology. While a student, he was active in the production of the University newspaper, yearbook, alumni magazine, and admissions viewbook. As part of the University's work-study program, he was a laboratory assistant in the Graphic Arts Department. "Kurt was bright, inventive, confident, and special,"said Harvey Hoechstetter, founder of Hoechstetter Printing Company, employee after graduation. "During the months of his illness, he exhibited an attitude and an example that will serve as an inspiration for all of us." Kurt died of cancer on December 28, 1989 at the age of 28. This scholarship was established in memory of Kurt to benefit students in the Graphics and Multimedia program.
