Penn Stater Tom Richards Perishes During LJS

Thomas Richards, a Schreyer Scholar and incoming member of the Presidential Leadership Academy, died early this morning after having a seizure. The tragic incident occurred at Camp Blue Diamond where Tom was a teaching assistant for this year’s Leadership Jumpstart class. He had taken the same class last year.

At the time of his death, Tom was about to enter his sophomore year, studying political science and history. Tom participated in the Penn State Mock Trial Club and the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Council. Before entering college, he obtained the rank of Eagle Scout and was a member of the Order of the Arrow in the Boy Scouts of America.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be finalized.

Onward State wishes to extend its deepest sympathies to the Richards family and Tom’s friends during this difficult time.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
