Penn State alumni establish scholarship to ‘produce a better world’

Penn State alumni Brian and Terri Green said three reasons sparked their decision to establish the Robert and Florence Green Memorial Scholarship in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. First, they wanted others to have the same benefits they experience from a college education. Second, they believe investments in education aimed at reshaping global energy use will have cascading benefits for people worldwide. Lastly, they wanted to honor Brian Green’s blue-collar parents, for whom the scholarship is named.
