Legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno will be honored with a candlelight vigil at Penn State DuBois planned for 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, at the campus Lion Shrine.  All members of the public are welcome.  

Paterno died Sunday of complications from lung cancer.  He was 85 years old.

This service in DuBois, planned by the Penn State DuBois Student Government Association (SGA) is in addition to services and public memorials set at University Park.  Paterno made a personal impact on Penn State DuBois, most recently by helping to raise funds for the Penn State DuBois Alumni Scholarship, and by personally contributing to that fund.
