Terry Appolonia began his tenure as the dean at IUP-Punxsy July 25, after serving in various positions at the main campus since 1986. More recently, he served as the dean of students and associate vice-president for student development at the universityâ€™s main campus.
BROOKVILLE â€” The Solid Waste Authority of Jefferson County is hoping to make some headway with local lawmakers in its quest for funding.
Donna Cooper, solid waste/recycling coordinator, wants to schedule a meeting with state Rep. Sam Smith and state Sen. Joe Scarnati to update them on the authorityâ€™s funding status.
Since losing its administrative fee, the authority has been trying to stay afloat.
For 2011 drop-off donations, $11,208 has been committed, and the authority has already received $10,708 of that money. Last year, the authority received only $8,450.
