Story of Fund
Catherine Ye graduated from State College Area High School in 2007 and went on to earn a bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Chicago. Catherine's passion for life and curiosity were infectious. She could make anyone laugh with everything from a nerdy economics joke to a goofy face and she used her well-timed humor to motivate others. But perhaps most importantly, she was deeply kind. Catherine had a strong curiosity about life and individual morals; in high school, she looked for answers through participation in the Speech and Debate Team. Catherine was both artistic and creative, doodling any daydream into life and using her creativity as part of both the Yearbook and School Newspaper.
Catherine is remembered as a beloved daughter, sister, and friend. She had a gift of bringing comfort and love to those who were graced with her company. This fund was established to celebrate Catherine's life, her values, and the happiness she brought to her loved ones. This fund hopes to help those who are similar positive forces in the lives of those who surround them.
