PUNXSUTAWNEY — The old saying goes that one life touches another, and that has proven true for a dearly departed student whose legacy continues to live on long after her passing.

In 1987, Polly Hallman was just beginning her sophomore year when she sadly passed away. Her classmates were stricken with grief, but also determined to do something in her memory.

Since Polly loved to volunteer and help out her community, her classmates decided to band together and establish a scholarship in her honor.
