Story of Fund

Fund jeremy t sente memorial scholarship

Marjory and Frank Sente created this scholarship fund in to honor the memory of Jeremy, and to support future generations of State College students.   "My son was a great kid, all American, bright, funny. We had this perfect little family life," Frank Sente, Jeremy's father, said. "All of a sudden, he developed cancer."  Jeremy Sente died at age 15, after a 13-month battle with a malignant brain tumor.  Despite many challenges during his treatment, he maintained a sense of humor and enjoyed the people around him.
