Memorial Scholarship Announced During Tally Hour

Tally Hour began at the BJC with touching speeches from Tally Sepot’s family and friends. After sentiments from her mom and sisters from Alpha Chi Omega, the group announced the establishment of the Tally Sepot Memorial Scholarship, which is expected to be awarded for the first time at THON 2017.

“The scholarship will be awarded annually to the student who exemplifies the kind of spirit, enthusiasm, and commitment to THON, Penn State, and all that Tally stood for,” they said. The Sepot family came up with $50,000 to create an endowed fun in honor of Tally.

Tally was known for her kind spirit and her dedication to THON and finding the cure, and this scholarship will carry on her legacy with its first recipient next year.
