Lamont family donates to memorial scholarship

From left, Rocco Cusat and Kevin Lamont ’80 presented a $20,000 contribution to the Matthew J. Lamont Scholarship at Penn State Hazleton. Receiving the donation were Dr. Gary Lawler, chancellor, and Kevin Salaway, director of Development and University Relations. A student at Penn State Hazleton, Matthew died in 2010 from Friedreich’s ataxia, a neuro-muscular disease that he lived with for 14 years. In the three years since then, an annual golf tournament has raised $70,000 for the scholarship which benefits Penn State Hazleton students.
