From the President

Hello Berks County Penn Staters and Visitors!

Welcome to the Berks County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association! Berks County is home to over 11,000 Penn State alumni. Like the saying goes, once a Penn Stater, always a Penn Stater! Our chapter hosts events throughout the year that allow you to meet and network with fellow alumni and celebrate your Penn State pride.
Some of the Chapter’s flagship events include our viewing parties held at PJ Whelihan’s in West Lawn, PA, our annual golf outing and our annual Penn State Night at the Reading Royals benefitting THON.
As an organization, we are always growing and open to new ideas and want to hear from you! There are many opportunities to engage your Penn State Pride, whether joining our board, assisting as a volunteer or attending as a friend. We hope to meet you at one of our events or meetings in the near future!
Please feel free to reach out to me at with any questions, feedback or ideas for the chapter!
For the Glory!

John Ginder ‘15
President, Berks County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association
