Terry and Kim Pegula Announced as Homecoming Grand Marshals
Earlier this evening the Penn State Homecoming Committee announced that Terry Pegula, the man who made Division I hockey in Happy Valley possible, and his wife Kim will serve as Grand Marshals for the Penn State Homecoming Parade this October.
Pegula, the owner of the Buffalo Sabres, originally donated $88 million to the Men’s and Women’s hockey programs. A majority of that gift is being used to construct a state-of-the-art hockey venue, which will be named the Pegula Ice Arena. At the groundbreaking in April, he increased his donation to $102 million.
This year, Homecoming Week will begin on September 29th and conclude on October 6th as Penn State takes on Northwestern.
