Edward Prebor

2009 Hall of Fame Inductee

Class: 1949

A star player and captain of the Clarks Summit High School football team, Prebor did a tour in the United States Navy prior to attending Keystone. Prebor was a Petty Officer Third Class aboard the U.S.S. Fond du Lac, a Haskell-class attack transport. During his two years aboard the ship he saw action in Iwo Jima and the invasion of Okinawa.

Once he arrived on the La Plume campus he quickly made a name for himself as a key member of the football, basketball and baseball teams, as well as having served as president of Student Council.

Prebor was the second leading scorer on the 1948-49 basketball team, netting 209 points in 19 games for the Giants.

Upon graduation from Keystone he continued his academic and basketball careers at Lehigh University where he earned a bachelor's degree in engineering/management in 1951. Prebor has enjoyed a long and successful career in the construction field, which eventually led him to become president of a major piping and construction company and most recently as vice-president of corporate sales at Sargent Electric Company.

Although he graduated from Keystone 60 years ago, Prebor has remained very active and supportive of the college. He has served on the board of trustees and as a class correspondent for the alumni association. In 1998 he was presented with the Distinguished Service to Keystone award, while in 2001 he was honored with the President's Award for Excellence.

He has also served on the board of directors at the legendary Oakmont Country Club, of which he is also a member, and he is currently part of the local organizing committee at Oakmont as the club prepares to host the 2010 U.S. Women's Golf Open.
