The 367 Project Carries on Richards’s Memory

Though his time at Penn State was short, Tom Richards left a lasting impression on his friends and peers. In August, while on retreat with the Leadership Jump Start class that he was a TA for, Richards died of a hemorrhage brought on from a brain aneurysm, shortly before the start of his sophomore year. In his memory, his friends and family have united to carry on his zest for service and leadership through The 367 Project.

Started by 2010 graduate Mike Thomas, the project is named for the time Richards spent as a Penn State student. During these 367 days, he greatly influenced his fellow students, compelling them to carry on this impact. The project is based out of Philadelphia, PA but has a local chapter operating at Penn State.
