Kohlhepp Named Penn State DuBois Campaign Chair
DuBois – Dan Kohlhepp, of DuBois, has been named chair of the For the Future Campaign at Penn State DuBois.
For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students is aimed at keeping a Penn State education affordable by increasing scholarship opportunities for students. Each campus has assembled its own committee, which is responsible for seeking funding and gifts that will benefit only that campus' students.
"Dan was an obvious choice as the chair of this committee," said Penn State DuBois Chancellor Anita McDonald. "He is truly dedicated to his community and to giving back to the people in this region and sharing the success he has had in his business ventures."
Kohlhepp is President and CEO of Granite Road, LLC, a consulting company specializing in real estate investment and development services. He is also President and CEO of the Kohlhepp Real Estate Investment Trust, Ltd. and its sister company, the Kohlhepp Corporation which owns and manages a portfolio of closely held real estate investments. He is also a past president of the DuBois Educational Foundation, the advisory board for Penn State DuBois.
Born and raised in DuBois, Pennsylvania, Kohlhepp earned his B.S. and M.B.A. degrees from Penn State and his Ph.D. in Real Estate and Urban Analysis at The Ohio State University. He has published numerous academic and professional articles in real estate and continues to teach adult education classes and seminars. In 2003, he received the Penn State University Alumni Fellow Award.
"As a Penn State graduate and lifelong supporter of the university, I am honored to have this chance to help current Penn State students receive the best education they can," Kohlhepp said. "I also look forward to seeing all of the opportunities this campaign will provide for students from our area who may not otherwise be able to afford a quality education."
