Chappie Hill Memorial Scholarship
Our endowed scholarship is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Irvin “Chappie” Hill, a pioneer at Penn State and a friend to all. Chappie was born September 22, 1935 in Pittsburgh and graduated from Schenley High School in 1952. Chappie was one of the first African-American football players at Penn State and lettered for the team as a running back. He received a B.A. in Liberal Arts-Labor & Management Relations in 1956.
Since 2008, our THON Alumni Committee (formerly known as Pittsburgh DMAIG) has raised nearly $150,000 for THON and the Four Diamonds Fund. The Greater Pittsburgh Chapter is proud to support this dedicated group of Alumni in the Pittsburgh area as they continue in their commitment to fighting pediatric cancer.
