Susan Broome Scholarship

In Memory of Susan Broome
Founding member, confidant and friend.

Susan was born a mentor, coach, confidant, and friend.  She taught us how to develop and execute a plan in work and in life.  Susan had a special bond with her Savvy family, and truly cared for all of us. She was a genuine person, Penn State proud, and you always knew what she was thinking– there was no holding back— her thoughts were full of wisdom that always made us stronger!
