Members of the Keystone College community gathered to honor 2017-2018 scholarship donors and recipients at its 21st annual Scholarship Luncheon on campus. The event provided students an opportunity to meet the donors who make it possible for them to pursue their education at Keystone College.

Diane Paparo ’76 and Karl Neuroth, benefactors of the Kimberly Deborah Merenz ’91 Scholarship and the Scotty Neuroth Memorial Scholarship, spoke on behalf of scholarship donors.
