The nursing program at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, has renamed an annual student award to honor Alyssa J. O’Neill, a student who died in September after suffering a grand mal seizure.
O’Neill, 18, was a freshman at Penn State Behrend. She planned to enter the college’s nursing program at the start of her sophomore year.
Each year Penn State Behrend hosts a number of nationally recognized and accomplished individuals from a wide range of professions, industries and areas of expertise for its annual Speaker Series, supported by the Student Activity Fee, the Division of Student Affairs and the Harriet Behrend Ninow Memorial Lecture Series Fund. These events are FREE and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
For more information, contact the Office of Student Activities at 814-898-6171.
The Sam and Irene Black School of Business at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, is featured in “The Best 295 Business Schools: 2014 Edition.” The guide, published by the Princeton Review, calls the college’s MBA program “the best value for a working student in the local area.”
Eighteen years, 1,875 interviews and one life-altering event later, the goal remains the same for Daniel Hernandez Jr.: helping people.
That was the prevailing message from the motivational speaker’s lunchtime presentation in front of 40 students, staff and faculty members in the lobby of Metzgar Center at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.
The day before she died, Alyssa J. O’Neill, 18, a first-semester student at Penn State Behrend, told her mother, Sarah O’Neill, that she wanted to try a pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. Her mom promised her she’d get one the next day. But, sadly, Alyssa died unexpectedly at her home on Wednesday, September 4, before she and her mother had a chance to try the spicy fall coffee.
