Madeline Vetter recently received a CAN DO Community Foundation Scholarship in recognition of the foundation’s annual support of local college students.
Vetter is the daughter of Dawn and Harry Vetter, Hazleton, and a 2015 Marian High School graduate. A first-year student at Penn State Hazleton, Vetter is studying in the university’s Division of Undergraduate Studies program.
The CAN DO Community Foundation Scholarship honors and recognizes outstanding academic achievement by an undergraduate student enrolled at the Hazleton campus of Penn State University. It is awarded annually at the Highacres Society Dinner.
The CAN DO Community Foundation sponsored a historical marker at the Sheppton Mine Disaster and Rescue site to commemorate the 52nd anniversary of the day two coal miners trapped in a mine cave-in were rescued.
