50 years and going strong: IUP-Punxsy celebrates milestone anniversary

August 21, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In 1960, committees representing the Punxsutawney Chamber of Commerce and the Punxsutawney Area School Board met to assess interest in pursuing the establishment of a college campus in Punxsutawney.

The construction of the new West End Elementary School had vacated the former elementary building and invited the enthusiastic prospect of hosting a regional post-secondary education institution.

In 1961, Chairman Glenn Henry named a college selection committee and charged it with assessing regional college and university interest in establishing a Punxsutawney campus.
