MONT ALTO, Pa. - An alumnus of Penn State Mont Alto, saying he wanted to repay the institution that gave him his start, gave the school $500,000 for an endowed scholarship fund for nontraditional students.
The gift was announced Thursday by David Goldenberg, chief executive officer of the campus, at the school's scholarship donor-recipient reception.
Goldenberg said the donation from Dr. Albert Kligman and Dr. Lorraine Kligman was the largest given to the school in its 94-year history.
Albert Kligman is emeritus professor of dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania.
The son of immigrant parents, he attended Penn State Mont Alto on a forestry scholarship in 1935-36. He was the first in his family to attend college. He graduated from Penn State in 1939 with a biology degree and earned a doctorate in medicine from the University of Pennsylvania.
