Penn State Athletes Take Action in the Spotlight

November 16, 2015 at 12:44 pm Leave a comment

Back in our May/June 2013 issue, we looked at Penn State women’s basketball player Gizelle Studevent ’13 and her involvement with Penn State Athletes Take Action. Studevent started the program, which began as an independent study project, with the hopes of having student-athletes talk to middle schoolers—starting with sixth graders at Mount Nittany Middle School—about the dangers of bullying.

Studevent has graduated, but PSATA is still around. Centre County Report took a look at the program, which is now led by women’s volleyball player Kendall Pierce and former basketball player Kevin Montminy ’15. It has expanded to include 110 Penn State student-athletes and now visits several middle schools in the area—not bad for a former independent study project.
