We unfortunately heard the news yesterday that William Schreyer, for whom the Schreyer Institute is named, passed away earlier this week. An incredibly generous alum, Mr. Schreyer supported many Penn State students. In some instances the support came through gifts to Institutes such as ours, as well as the Schreyer Honors College. In other instances, the support was more direct, as Mr. Schreyer provided several scholarships as well as mentoring for students hoping to land a career on Wall Street.
Penn State will certainly miss the enthusiasm, guidance, and many other elements that William Schreyer contributed to our University.
