Outstanding Peer Tutor Award

The Outstanding Peer Tutor Award began in 2010 when funds were made available by a valued Penn State employee, Donna Weber. Donna was a member of the Penn State Mont Alto community for more than 20 years with an extreme amount of dedication to and concern for the students, faculty, and staff of Penn State Mont Alto. Unexpectedly, the staff of Penn State Mont Alto lost Donna to cancer in the spring of 2012.

With the Outstanding Peer Tutor Award, we are not only recognizing the outstanding efforts of a Peer Tutor or PASS Leader, but we are honoring the memory of Donna as well. Recipients of the award receive $50 and their name is engraved on a plaque that is hung within the Academic Support Center. If you are interested in contributing funds that will help ensure the continuation of this award for many years to come, please contact Academic Support Center Director Kendra Wolgast Sites.

All Penn State Mont Alto faculty and staff members, as well as students who have utilized the Academic Support Center’s Peer Tutoring/PASS Leader services, are able to submit nominations. Students are only permitted to nominate Peer Tutors and PASS Leaders with whom they have worked. If you know a peer tutor or PASS Leader who has demonstrated outstanding dedication to this position and exceptional concern for his or her fellow students, you are encouraged to nominate him or her for this honor.
